Tab was a great tool to start out with, but I feel that I'm at a point where it's hindering me. I have identified three sticking points that will take me to the next level- * Being able to play positions on the bass without looking down at the fingerboard. This will end the practice of me constantly looking away from the sheet and losing my place. Losing my place in the song tends to take me off beat when I have to find my place again. * Being able to, without thinking, know which notes are which on the fretboard without doing quick dirty math (ie: "Ok, this is A string... two frets down is B, plus one makes C") * Being able to instantly recognize notes on the bass clef without thinking about it. I know the notes of the bass clef, but I'm not at the point where I can instantly recognize a note and hit the right place on the right string without thinking about it. What are practices that I can do to facilitate nailing this down? I plan on practicing these points ten minutes per day after scales and before my lesson material.
