Re: Why you should learn to read
Yes Jim. They should create charts so that on the off chance YOU want to
come and play, so it will be easy for YOU.
It's a joke, son, dontcha get it? I have said from Day One that if you
want to be a working pro, you need to learn to sight-read music.
Then again, there's a germ of truth to what I said. There are countless
bass players out there who could play that piece if they had a chance to
hear it first. If the piece is made up of mostly quarter and eighth
notes without a lot of funky stuff, then I bet a bunch of players could
look at the tab and wing it the first time through without much trouble.
And, was we have discussed here many times, there are plenty of
musicians willing to work for little or nothing. You should be grateful
that more of them don't learn to sight read and that music directors
would rather spend the church's money than spend 20 minutes "dumbing
down" the music for bassists.
