Just curious. Due to a very mean upbringing, I never took up an instrument growing up.
When I got out of the house, I took up guitar, but only played by copying others.
When I started to play banjo, I only learned TAB- numbers and lines. Never learned notation.
How many folks out there are like me and don’t know how to read Notation? Only TAB?
Benefit analysis? Pro Con?
I think I am too old now to learn Notation as I find TAB works well for me mostly. Still wondering if I should go through the music theory aspect of this site.
