I learned to read music notation from the very start, taking lessons as a kid. Back then Tab was not as near commonplace as it is now, most method and music books did not come equipped with tab notation......wich I think is a hinderance to up and coming players. I'm a pretty decent reader, as good as I'm ever gonna be, I can do it good enough to sit down and be able to sight read through a musical, sight read charts , etc......I studied with this one guy who you's to sight read John Coltrane solos. He would turn the music upside down to make it more challenging. Pretty sic.
