    and why the heck are you asking for sheet music if you cant read it?? :confused:
  9. I don't think he can read Treble clef just yet.

    well, he should have know that the song deals with harmonics (trebble clef) and a bass line (bass clef)...

    anyways... with a tab and some directions by WR and microbass he can handle it :)
  11. Micro and WR have both been a huge help to me...I can read bass clef (just learning) but treble I dunno the note structure...so I couldn't read that...

    I'm sorry...I should just die...im so stupid:bawl:

    oh come on, it`s never too late for learning!


    *afterschool special ends*
  13. I was kidding...kind of:)

    Dun worry...im getting lessons really soon *excited* I havent been playing long either...

    *shrug* Im in a Jazz/Jaco/Fretless "Groove" at the moment

    Continuum has gotten me:)
  14. I tabbed it out PERFECTLY from the Jaco sheet music book I got.."The Essential Jaco" for Obsolex...it is floating as a document now on my comp

    it doesn't transpose well to other people's word processers for some weird reason, if you'd like I can fax it to you...
  15. IM me on AIM or PM me if you'd like to do that...I can walk you through it as well, I walked Obsolex through the parts he didn't understand...
  16. Jon, ya know how the first C(5th Fret, G string(teehee..)) that is one ledger line above the staff?

    This is known as middle C. The next whole note is D, in which, would have the same position on the treble cleff as the low F on the bass clef, right?

    From there you can figure the notes out; E sits on the first line, F in it, and so on!


    there's a good webby, that explains the notes of the clef's.

    g'luck and just ding me if you a hand.. :)
  17. i never new harmonics were written in treble clef..i did this peice and they wrote harmonics still in bass clef but instead of circle as the notes they had diamonds

    Never seen it spelt like that before. Congratulations, you've invented a new misspelling of Pastorius ;)
  19. I can read sheet music, just crappily, and slowly:( :bawl:
  20. Sorry...I always think of Pastorius--Pastry(hehe)

    I'll change it. thanks for not flaming me:)
