Sir Paul didn't read Music. And you forgot to say please.

I read music, but I'm an asshole.

Seriously though, the average rock player doesn't need to know how to read much. Especially with the amount of available chord charts and tabs online. You know how many guitarists I've played with that can't even play by ear because they rely so heavily on internet tab? Almost all of them.

So Costin, is it fair to say that you are a composer? I'm sure if you just want to hand out charts to dudes and have them play your stuff you could find people. You would just have to pay them.

I taught myself to read. Then retaught myself again for some (unnecessary) classes. Didn't use it for years and lost it. I mean, I can do it, but I'll need a refresher on rest symbols and clefs and I would go really slow.

I read like a dream. It doesn't do me a lot of good though.

Interesting,

Being that I am 56 years young, there was no money back in the 1960's to shell out for me on extended guitar lessons. I had a few lessons, learned how to read and play "sukiyaki" from Mel Bay 1 and realized then that I was never going to learn the songs of the group that made me want to play guitar, THE BEATLES. So I put down the books, learned every song by ear, and have played by ear ever since and do not need music for most songs that I know.

Now each of my 3 kids are trained to read music and have to have music charts to play. That is tough when I tell them to jam in a certain key.

None of this is wrong as long as the music sounds good.

Don

Theresa Quinn, how are you!

Yes you do read music very well and it DOES do you very good. It is amazing watching your gigs. I am the friend of Tom Brown's that saw you play in Lackawanna.
