Who Can Read Music?
Since i have been playing bass (February 2002) i have been reading music off tablature, not the real notated stuff, could anyone preferably teach me or give me any good websites, books, or whatever that will guide me through my problem?

Cheers! :beer:

get any "basic" theory books...should have something in 'em

or if you can give me a pic of a "real" tab and tell me what you dont understand, i could tell you(im not really good at explaining:P

oh yeah and check the regular guitar/bass theory sites, might have something in there too ( etc)

you could also get powertab, and compare the guitarish tabs to the realish tabs(theres both in the prog)

Just get a teacher. It's the easiest way, before you misunderstood some things that arte not clearly explained. He can teach you all the things like staccato, different note systems,... If you want to be an awesome player, it's worth to spend the money.

yup, I also learned it from my bass teacher, it's nice to be able to read music, you can play bach etc on bass :)

Hey freezer, could you tell me what this would be played like on the bass, fret and string wise..?

Cheers!:beer: :)

You've got to post the "note symbol".
If it's the first in my attachment, it's: d, f, a, c, d, e, g | e, g, b, d, f
If it's the second attachment, it's: f, a, c, e, g, b | g, b, d, f, a
I hope that was right, because i'm totally drunk. :D

i'm thinking that you'd be reading it off the bass clef, not the treble clef. the bass clef is the one that looks like a comma

its a pretty weird symbol actually, looks like an ear with a ' : ' attached to it
