Haven't really played much in ages... 30 years ago I played the Baritone (Euphonium) Horn in Middle School and learned to read Bass Clef sheet music, and had a lot of fun with that. Then a new family moved in next door, their son and I become friends and he started playing electric guitar and got real good, so I decided to try the Bass and we'd hang out and jam to Guns 'n Roses or Van Halen every now and then. But really all I ever did was just dick around with the damn thing and aside from learning the basics, E A D G open strings, a few octaves and power cords, I never really took it seriously and I never really bothered to truly learn the fret board and more importantly... I never really bothered to actually LEARN to play the Bass... never really learned to develop any playing technique .. never learned to do a proper "setup" on the instrument... Yeah, I thought it was cool that I could pick it up and play the intro to Sweet Child of Mine or Coma, or Metallica's Orion.... or, oh yeah, that I could plug in a digital delay and thump a string and play Pink Floyd's One of These Days... or better yet, just thump a string and turn a knob on the delay and recreate the sound of the Jetson's car... yeah my neighbor friend started doing LSD about then, and he thought the Delay was reeeeaaaal trippy when I did the Jetson's thing. Oh I could read basic Tablature... heck a monkey could play a Bass off Tab. Anyway.... I'm 45 now, and decided to get back into playing. Call it my mid-life crisis... I'm getting bored with computer gaming and netflix... told my wife I wanted something different to do, so a few months ago when that nice Corona Shut Down "Stimulus" check landed in my bank account, I decided to pick up a Bass again. Bought a nice Ibanez SR250 (cause it was calling to me) and then went and found someone local on Reverb.com who was selling a Carvin PB100 amp... the same amp I used back in the day, and I bought that... and just a couple weeks ago I picked up a decent set of headphones to use with it, and a TC Electronics Corona Chorus Tone Print peddle, just to add a little touch of color to my tone, that and ok I can still play Sweet Child and now I can download Duff's Tone Print for that! LOL But seriously... Lets just say, Tool's newest Magnum Opus... and Justin Chancellor's work on it has all really inspired me to want to pick up the Bass and play again. So now, I want to learn the fret board properly, and re-learn to read the music... not just read the Tab, but read the actual sheet music... re-learn Bass Clef. I want to do it without paying someone for 30 - 60 minutes worth in lessons, cause thats not in our budget right now. I work 4am to 1pm and on my days off, I'm sitting here at home staring at my computer screen cause I'm always nervous some PC Game I'm going to load up is going to get too loud and wake up the wife in the next room... and, well today was one of those days and it got me thinking... "I need to find something I can use to re-teach myself the sheet music, and teach myself how to attribute that to the fret board" SO. I am looking for advice on what my best options are for doing this, between 4am and 1pm... without waking up everyone in my apartment building!
