If anyone read one of my posts I was saying that I can read music on a DB (double bass) but not on a bass guitar. Some were saying well there both on the bass scale and stuff but I couldn't read it beacuase one the DB I just put fingers down with no tape or frets so I wasn't sure what a finger was equal to. So that night I stayed up and taught myself, with the help of a few bass teaching books, how to read music on a bass guitar. The next day I asked my orchestra teacher what songs she wanted someone to play the bass guitar on. She asked me to play "Season's of Love" and "Motown Forever" at the concert (which was in 10 days when we talked) a week from today (today being May 14). So I'm real happy that I can read music and get a simple gig!
