    Get a book (or teacher) to learn standard notation. You'll thank me for the rest of your life. Honest.
     
  3. Yes, learn to read. 'Nuff said.

    Now, everybody else, don't read...that way me, LMX, and Broncrider32 can get ALL of the gigs!!!
     
  4. I'm sorry JMX; please forgive me...

    I meant JMX instead of Lmx.

    Damn 2-finger typing and I still make mistakes...better stick to bass...

    Haha..at least you don't call Josh Walsh John Walsh all the time ;) I woudl hate me for that..can't stand that annoying guy on all those cop shows. :spit:

    I got a book called Basix Bass method that seams to be good for learning site reading notation. There are like 3 or 4 books in the series and they come with CD's.

    While your at at it, another good book is "Jazz Essentials" Its basic jazz theory for idiots, I like it :D.
