Ok, in the rock jam band I'm in, we just play by ear or hand scratched chord lists. In the church praise band I'm in, we get word/chord charts. I've been learning to read notation and now have a question for a situation I have coming up. Our keyboardist is playing at a wedding and wants some of us in the band to assist her. She gave me some music to look over. It's a little more involved that just 3 chord repetition so I'd like to give the notation line a shot. This is a book for "piano/vocals". There is no chord line but the line on bass cleff looks fairly simple most of the time..EXCEPT...Some of the songs have 2 note stacks in the bass cleff line, as in there are 2 notes written in a beat like an F and a C. As the bass player, is it proper to play the one on the bottom as you do when you have a chord like Eb/F, the one on the top if the bottom one is below the range of a 4 string low E, or does it really matter as long as I don't switch back and forth through the song? This is probably a dumb question, but like I said I am very new to reading notation on bass. Thanks!
