Hey, after reading the post about Ray Brown's method and taking some time to shed it, I started wondering about something. Do you think its better or worse to read the exercises from sheet music, or to look at your left hand on the fingerboard when your playing it? For example, in Ray Brown's book, he writes out scales, thirds, fourths, etc. I was wondering if I should try to play exercises by reading them off the book, or if I should just play the exercise by figuring it out without reading. For example, when I'm playing thirds should I be reading the music to find the notes, or should I just figure out the notes by myself (since its just thirds and its all in the scale) and play it? Do you guys think one is better than the other? Do you think there's a difference?
