I believe that guitar/bass lessons involving standard music notation first, along with other guitar-centric notation (tablature or “tabs,” chord charts and diagrams, etc…) and a flexible plan to engage the student’s interest, is still the best way to gain a well rounded understanding of the instrument. Trendy methods touting “no music reading needed” may be useful to a casual beginner just starting out, but for a serious advancing student with goals of playing in the school jazz band or orchestra, a church praise band, or looking to gain techniques to meet and/or exceed expectations in musical performance and artistic challenges, a basic understanding of standard notation enhances musicianship and raises the game. The skills gained when learning standard-notation music reading translates to other instruments and to other musicians -it’s universal. Music reading will go a long way to improve overall musicianship- including the ability to play by ear.
