I need some technique books - Can't read music though.

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by DaveCustomMade, May 26, 2004.

  1. I used to be able to read music. . . . . . . .about 22 years ago!! :meh: Anyway, I've never gotten around to relearning it and basically use chord charts for whatever song I'm doing. It's okay though, because I can use my ear [which is pretty strong] and not be bound to written notes.

    However, having played for many years, I feel it's time for me to need assistance beyond where I'm currently at. I have a very good grasp of music and play all the time, so I'm not a beginner. I need to know what you all would suggest for someone like me in the area of a book or video so I can learn more techniques of chords and soloing. I prefer jazz, as that is what I listen to most.

    Thanks! :)
