Here's a question I'd like to throw out there to gauge how many guitarists can or can't read music, either proficiently or otherwise. I'm talking about fly stuff , not chord charts. For myself, it's been an on and off affair. I never took it seriously in my younger years and didn't put enough effort and time in, so never advanced past what I'd call beginner level. Maybe some of you out there might share tips or methods that made reading easy for you.
