Simple Steps To Sight Reading Details: http://bit.ly/2uqY87f
When most people think of reading music the first thing that springs to mind is usually pitch: The actual notes on the stave and how they correspond to the instrument.
But that’s actually a pretty small part of learning to read. There are only so many notes on the bass but there are a near limitless number of different rhythms.
Rhythm is what makes music. Without any rhythm we’d just have notes in stasis. So rhythm is an essential part of learning to read. Because of this, reading can have an absolutely huge impact on our overall playing ability. Our approach to rhythmic subdivision, our rhythmic independence and our overall musical vocabulary all benefit from this area of study.
This week sees the release of the 2nd edition of the Simple Steps To Sight Reading course over at Talkingbass. Rhythm is an important part of the course and in this lesson we’re going to look at an example from level 5 dealing with Triplets.
