I asked this question in another thread, but it seems to have been lost in the 28+ pages of that discussion and I never got a reply. So I will ask the same question here as a new topic in hopes that someone can offer suggestions. My question: What method book/lesson plan/software programs would you guys recommend for an adult who can read SN, but not sight read fast enough on bass to make SN truly useful? Also, for the true beginner, like the OP, who probably does not know either tab or SN, what program would you recommend they start on for the proper start? Obviously, the OP stated that his music instruction was boring, and I noticed that he never responded to any of the replys on this thread, and then just dropped off the TB forum completely after a few months. I have some nephews that have started to show some interest in guitar/bass, and I would like to be able to recommend a method of instruction that will not bore them to death from the start. And I realize that is a tough order considering learning real guitar/bass has to compete with Guitar Hero and Rock Band these days.... Anyway, thought I would lead by example first. So I will add sight reading to my daily woodshed workout routine. Again, I can read SN, but I'm just not fast. Any recommendations?
