    I have been playing bass for about a year, just looking at tab for the songs our band does. Now i finally got into learning things by ear. I learned the entire Rubberneck album by the Toadies in about 2 days. Now i just gotta move on to some harder stuff.

    Thar ya' go!
    Eons ago, my "teacher" couldn't read for bass clef.
    I'd take him a song I wanted to learn on a little casette player.
    He'd listen to it and pick out the key, root, pattern, etc.
    Then he taught me how to do this (whoo-hoo! :D ).

    The good news is, it gets easier and easier. Just keep doing it. Congrats on the breakthrough.
     
  4. That's great! I love the look on people's faces when I just pick up the bass or guitar and start playing along to a song. Keep it up!
