  1. F'in Mandolin Shootout with a Nugget, Gilchrist and Hogan!

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    Hey Folks!

    Here's Maiden’s Prayer, with John David Williams on button accordion.

    Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    Learning to play by ear, learning to read tabs, learning to read notation, ... its what ever you don't do that is detrimental to really learning.
  9. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    What matters is developing a process to learn and play a tune that inspires you. What that process actually is doesn't matter.
  10. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    I find your use of invective (“parochial”, “prejudice”) lacking in imagination and creativity. Also, you read my posts a bit carelessly. I never said the learning TAB detracts from more productive...

    Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    If you ever try to learn an Aaron Weinstein chord melody arrangement without using tablature, I recommend taking something for headache in advance.
  13. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    I never cared much about reading notation, until I started learning things that tabs were not readily available for.
    For example, I got into some Brazillian Choro thanks to Mike Marshall. He tabbed...
  14. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    This whole discussion reminds me of a story told by Ron Thomason, mandolin picker for the Dry Branch Fire Squad. To paraphrase:

    If we could all read music, wouldn't be no need for the band. We...

    Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    This seems to be a good question because it pops up now and then, often parallel to the questions of learning to read standard notation. First of all, I only wish I had the talent of John Flynn's...

    Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    I did once come across a drummer who couldn’t play “without” notation. We asked him if he’d like to sit in with our second spot and his reply was “Do you have the dots?”. He was the chief...
  19. Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    People will tell you that reading TAB, or reading notation, or studying music theory will “hurt your playing”. In fact, any of the three as tools used for their purpose can help your musicianship.

    Re: Is playing TABS detrimental to really learning?

    First and foremost, let me dispel a canard: Tablature doesn't lack rhythm!

    Tab players might lack rhythm, but so, too, might players who are working from standard notation. In fact, rhythm...
