and .... ?

Gimme a chance... I don't read score remember so that slows me down. I have to read the score first because it's written above the tab. Heeheehee.

I can tell you that it smells all right but I've only read the foreword so far. I'm building a bass in the back room and that is taking up my time. I have promised myself that I'll learn some of the lines on the new bass to break it in.

Strings:
Pit Bull IB5 Home Built from Kit
Steinberger Spirit XT25
Hohner B2A
Vantage fretless 33B-XF

Wires:
Ashdown Toneman 300

Trace Elliot 1818T
Laney RB3

So I guess this is the "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" for Stax fans? Cool. I want it.

EDIT: Alright. I just ordered it.

Mine arrived in the weekend.

It's great. I've put post-its over the tab to make it a proper music book.


Wondering how to count in 15/4

Otherwise I'll use the tab and I'm trying to get competent at reading.

I'm not knocking it. I just thought it was funny given the recent resurrection of the old debate elsewhere.

I wish you everything you want from formal reading.
