    Does this work for you???
    I am reading music at the bus every day and I am improving a lot..
    My method
    Standing in the shadows of motwn book
    1- I count the subdivisions in my head while I tap the notes with my hand.
    2- I read the rhithm while I see how the notes relate to each other, and imagine where they are.
    3-I read the rhithm and try to hum the bass line.
    4`-Ì try to remember similar patterns of different tunes and I mark them.

    3 days per week I sight read with the bass some of this tunes with sincopation and simandl book

    that's actually a great way to do it if it's inconvenient to have a bass in your hands.

    It is almost an hour per day i read at the bus. Time flies. Great fun.
  4. Rust develops very quickly. I should read more.
  5. Yeah man!! I chill on the couch all the time with drum books and tap out syncopated rhythms.... Not the end-all-be-all but I definitely find it useful.
