    Hello I've been playing bass for over three years and am looking to learn to read sheet music for bass guitar. I have been learning to read it for piano as I teach myself from an adult piano book. I was wondering if there was anywhere on the internet I could find free help/lessons to show and help me read music for bass guitar? All help is much appreciated.
     
  2. Hey, well i started learning from here:

    I started with the notes on the fourth string and worked my way down. After a while i just got lessons and it helped me a heck of a lot more. but i think this site is good to start at, then you could get like a mel bay book or something.
