What do you read?
What can you read?
What do you want to read?

Since we're delving in to theory with Prof Krakow's lessons, it seems like an opportune time to see what other students use and want .

Should FunkU make the move to just standard notation?
If FunkU did, would you need/want lessons on how to read? --if you answered "no" above, would these lessons change your mind?

BD I read both tab and standard notation. It's not that important to me which one we use, my ear is whats lacking. Standard Note does give us the rhythm also. I thought SCD (bless his heart) had a computer program to convert songs to standard note?

There are several programs which can transcribe audio to midi/notation... I'll do some investigating and see if I have something already (I do - just looking at workflow - and checking which version of Sibelius I have).

Does anyone have an aversion to standard notation?

I usually transcribe to standard first, just so I have the complete picture. Also I am classically trained, so it is much more familiar to me than tabs. You kids today!

And then you get someone like Prof. TM Stevens who is blazing with all 10 fingers and I really have no idea how to put that down on paper. Although I have seen some great transcriptions of things that look impossible - so I will continue to work on it. If you have any specific requests, don't hesitate to shoot me an email.

Awesome post BD.... great thread even.

I am learning to read standard notation, as in.... grand staff style, so as to be able to digest both clefs simultaneously/ either or... .... .... and I have been making great strides yet... but its still a work in progress. .... .... it is essentially learning to read and write in another language after all. lol .... ..... thus, if the BCFU adds a lesson here or there about reading... that would be just fine by this Zebra... lol

Tabs are straight forward and easy enough... though ya get someOne like prof. TM playing an example and... well... best of luck to whoever is trying to write that down... standard notation, tabs or what have you.... lol


But.... So far I haven't had much to get in a bother about as far as the 'related files' go... so yeah, i am pretty satisfied at this point with it...

(sidenote: i guess the forum is inhabited by the living again, yes...? . lol)

if i already am familiar with the tune, tabs are good enough because i already know the timing, and tabs are easier to follow. if not, standard would be better. like ZG i'm learning to read standard both clefs but it's a work in progress for me as well and takes longer as i'll have to continuously look things up while trying to learn the tune. for funk and Rock and Roll tunes i prefer tabs. classical and R&B which have much more sensitive timing, standard. That’s my take.
