I havn't turned up much in searching, so sorry if this has been done. I've been playing rock and funk bass by ear for a long time, I play very well (have been in a band on Reprise records), understand very basic theory, but can't really read. My ability to learn quickly by ear has landed me many gigs ... but I want to expand my knowledge and feel a little stuck. I love listening to jazz, and want to start learning how to read, sightread, go deeper on theory ... what I'm looking for is a few books that can get me going (or do we reccomend lessons around here?). There are a thousand books out there, I'm wondering which might be good for my situation. Most books I see seem either too basic or too advanced for me. I've actually considered renting an upright and signing up for some lessons if I can find a good teacher locally. I was thinking the shift might help my brain kick into gear. Ideas?
