    ok so for the past few days i have been trying to teach myself how to read music like notation and all that. I have been using the website studybass.com. I can read tabs easily,i know the notes on the bass fretboard like on the E string it goes to F then F#(Gb)G,G#(Ab), A, A#(Bb), B, C, and so on i know those on all the strings. also, if im correct the bass vlef notes are pretty much the natural notes like A,B,C,D,E,F,G right? if so i know those pretty well too. also i was just practicing plucking exercises and it hit me. I knew how to read this much of notation at least. http://www.studybass.com/lessons/bass-technique/plucking/exercises/ from off the top of my head i can ready pitch,standard and rythmatic(still needs a lil work) pretty well. on rythmatic notation i just am having trouble with the 8ths,16ths and all that. but i do have a general idea of what it means. I was wondering what should i learn next? is it chords? study bass is too confusing with chords for me. also as a bass player would i play each note of a chord seperatley or all together? what do you think i should work on next? i also want to find a way to play a few songs instead of tabs. what would that be? also if this is in the wrong section please move it.
