Poll coming shortly.


This applies for every instrument you play.


Personally, I learn by ear. I really wish I knew how to read music, and tabs just confuse the hell out of me for some reason. I don't know, it's just easier.

Listening then using tabs to find out how its done, I dont have that kind of ear to pick it up, I can pick up the rhythm in two seconds, but not the notes

Thanks. I don't know why my first thought on seeing this thread was "narcolepsy" but I went with it.

For regular readers - that post was non-canon and took place outside the official smb timeline.

Either by sheet music for classical, lead sheet for jazz, tabs for metal, or by ear for most other styles.

...modes and scales are still useless.

In band I play through sheet music

When I play guitar, I learn as much as I can by ear, and the parts I can't figure out I look up the tabs/

For my Classical Guitar lessons, I read sheet music.

For punk, I use my ear.

Everything else is by tab.
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

I mix it all up. Don't use many tabs, but look for Chords at times.

I love how no one's yet voted for sheet music. I use it only for jazz and classical, but for rock, there's not much sheet music going around, so i use tabs for those.

I noticed that.

A bunch of musicians whom can't read music. Tsk tsk.


What if UG suddenly somehow transformed all the tabs into sheet music?

All the n00bs would be like, "d00d, how I canz lern Welcum 2 teh jungl wen thers no numbrz?!?!?!? Jus' these lil' MS paint bullshit thins that look like little birds on a telifoan wirz."

I do more classical music than anything else these days, so I learn most of my music through sheet music.
The medium is the message!

Well, with the large variety of styles of music these days comes a large variety of customs.

Why would you expect people here to use/know mainly sheet music when you know most of you just play rock/metal, styles that were never based on written music?
