My sight reading isn't that great so usually just use notation to figure out how something works rhythmically.

I read both. I can't sight read very well though, but gimme a minute and I can figure it out. Like T!AN said, I usually use it just to figure out rhythm qualities.


EDIT: Where's the "both" option? DIDN'T YOU THINK OF ME WHEN YOU MADE THIS THREAD?

Well, I can't sight read, I guess it's called, but if I want to learn a song form piano sheet music, I can. I prefer guitar tabs, because sheet music never has all the notes for some reason.

I thought I did let people choose both?

I think that just reading tab is mad!
With TAB, you don't even know wich not your playing!
How could you sit a thory exam with just knowing TAB???????????????
With notation, you would know all the thory as with little number, how would you?
I find notation easy that tab. TAB does my head in as I feel as if I don't know what I'm doin'!

(I think) that TAB is the hardest way to learn.
The hardest way is the easyest way (Meaning) TAB's OK in the short run but notation is better in the long run!

TAB
Pros: faster, get a good sound faster on simpler music
Cons: Slower in the long run, don't even know what note your playing and can't sit theory exams with any ease!!!

Notation


Pros: Great in the long run, you know what all the scales mean in theory, can compose easyer with it.Cons: Slow in the short run (harder to learn) get fustrating learning it.

Well, considering I'm a freshman in college and only 18 years old, none to list yet. But I don't need official qualifications to prove my ability to play. And since when do I need to prove anything to you?

Right, well unless you plan on being a proffesional composer or some such thing, a degree is not required. How many band members do you think went out and got a degree before they hit it big?

cos people get big does not mean that there music is accademicly good.
For instence, spice girls are rich, music accademicly sucks.
All these idiots like spice girls are con men!
And you said it your self!
If you don't wanna go pro, qualifications don't matter; they don't matter if you wanna mess about; but if you wanna go pro, then there more than anything else!!!

#29

They're academic, yet they have no "grades" to prove so. How does that work? Oh yeah, of course, count on arrogant to raise up double standards to better favor their own views.
#31
Anyway,
This thread isn't about swearing. as you are not fully balanced, I can't talk about this subject.

The composer will have (composing is the hard bit remember!)
The players might though.
Composers normally have at least a degree.

You sound a lot like this kid from Student Center I know. His name is Peter Merrick and he lives in Cornwall. Similar style of argument: completely incoherent and comprised of nothing but repetitive questions and unsubstantial claims.

Believe it or not, qualifications have very little to do with whether you'll get signed to a label or get asked to do gigs. If you want to be a teacher or composer etc., then they're a good thing. But most people would rather listen to your music than read an achievements list to tell how good you are.

And don't make multiple posts in a row, or bump your own thread.
