    Hey there! I'm new to the bass and I have been informed by many that although tabs are fun and provide some good motivation to keep persevering (because you can play things you know easily), if I want to really play bass (esp. jazz bass) I need to play a lot by standard notation.

    I already play a few other instruments so I can read the music and I intend to go out a purchase some books and sheets. What I really want to know is whether there is a decent source on the net for standard notation? Tabs are available by the dozen but I wasn't sure if you could find anything else out in the wide blue yonder... :confused:

    I also wasn't sure if this was the right forum for this... but since there was no "Standard Notation" forum I figured this was the closest I was gonna get!


    Cheers

    Thanks so much! Those links were all exactly what I was looking for. (And I've also discovered a host of other interesting bass stuff along the way!) :)


    Cheers!
