I used to be a decent reader, but as I almost never read I've lost a lot. I get rhythmic figures pretty easily, but it takes me a lot of time to find the notes and the way they're supposed to be played. I'm trying to get back into it, mainly because it makes relations in the band way easier. Considering that I only play bass, I figured I should work directly from the sheet to the instrument, instead of spelling the notes in rhythm first. Eventually, It'll be easier to make a direct connection between written notes and what I play on the neck. Is it a good idea, or should I do it the scholar way ?
