Lead Sheet Navigation for Bass Players

Published January 6, 2017 in Bass Tips


Knowing how to demystify lead sheets when you first look at them is a SUPER valuable skill that will last you a lifetime...

The gag is, what do you look at first?...

Key signature? Form? Common Chordal Movements (and why should you be looking for these?!)? Plus... everything else that's going on. Without a 'road map' it can be really overwhelming and confusing if you don't know where to start.

In this lesson I'm going to show you the top 4 things you should look out for, plus the exact order you should use when first looking at a lead sheet.

Whether you're already using lead sheets or you don't even know what they are, this lesson is going to be great for you!

Note: This lesson is just one of the lessons from the "Reading Charts Survival Guide" course within the Scott's Bass Lessons membership... if you dig the lesson, make sure you grab your free 14 day trial so you can check out the full course + all of the other amazing courses and cool features within the Academy.

As always, see you in the shed...

PS. Also, just a quick update on the SBL "One Strap"...

If you missed it, we released our very first strap just before the holidays and to our surprise it completely sold out of all pre-orders within 48 hours!

If you haven't checked out the strap yet you can watch the video here to find out more - and we've also set up a waitlist for you if you want be notified next time we make these available.

Have your say
