can someone help me sight read this???? bwuaahahaahahah

sheik yer bouti tango












edit* i really just wanted to show off my new find.....this is from the frank zappa guitar book, transcribed by steve vai....it it out of print but i got my hands on a pdf file....303 pages of scores....(i collect scores)...

if you can find one of these in actual book form, you'd be looking at a book worth between 3-5 hundred bones...

i'm in the process of printing off all the pages, then i am going to bind them....

just wanted to show it off. figured those who can read notation will appreciate it

Frank Zappa is (was) great!



I can read music. I used to play in a symphony orchestra, many years ago.

Nope. I haven't played it for years. I sold it and replaced it with a bass guitar. Instead of being a slave and play music made by others, I was free to improvise and make my own music. More freedom

I just want to know where you found such a large quantity (303 pages?) of out-of-print material on the internet? I'm not a big fan of Zappa, but I would love to find large quantities of sheet music like this for musicians I enjoy. I love transcribing music by ear, but after doing so with a couple of pieces it gets very draining on the ol' brain, and a site offering free sheet music would be most helpful.

Is there a particular sheet music site you found all that on, and more importantly, is it free?

I can read music well enough to learn a piece of music but don't like to use it to play by. I always play by memory which is not very good unless I play the piece regularly.

I read music very slowly,but seeing as i am an electric guitarist its not a priority like it is for fingerstyle, bassists and key players.My old sight reading teacher hardly used it at all over his long time in the industry,we normaly just get chord charts and go with the flow

Vai is a musical geek,love his stuff with DLR(best not mention his stint in Whitesnake!)The above notes look plentyfull!Dont think i have the stamina to play that,my fingers would go on strike!
