..besides watching your girly figure. I'm learning a Bach cello suite transcribed for bass. It's not especially difficult, but somewhat complex and I basically learn about 4 measures every couple days. Last night I was struggling through a bar due to a difficult reach. I had blotted out the tab below with a piece of paper but ended up peaking and found that the phrase was played in the second position rather than the first and second combined. I was bothered by my lack of instinct to move to the second position but the reminder was well taken and I breezed through the rest of practice. Lesson learned; maybe we shouldnt dismiss tab altogether as at times they can be helpful as an augmentation to notation reading skills. In general I still think they are the trash television of music.
