Playing melodies on bass?

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Greywoulf, Feb 29, 2004.


  1. I like playing melody on bass too… Just got a simple one, “All The Things You Are,” from this forum, and was able to transpose it okay and enjoy playing it. (As you can probably tell, I’m not exactly a whiz at reading... d];>]} )

    But transposing everything alla time from that ‘other’ clef is a PITA, y’know? So my question is this; has some intelligent and wise bassist put out a music book that has popular melodies already transposed into the bass clef?

    Someone must have; there’s gotta be others as lazy as me out there…! :D

    Thanks,

  2. Suck it up and learn treble, its just as important as bass clef, and more instruments play in it, so a lot of music is written in it.
