Niiiice. I suck at sight reading, but slow and easy wins the race!

Not really.

Yeaaah. I really need to work on improving my rythm-understanding skills.

usually that is the main problem with site reading for most people, for me is backwards, i cant really see the pitches that well because i am used to reading treble cleff, but i can get the rythms no problem because of my very good treble cleff reading

How long did it take you guys to get comfortable with reading rythms (atleast to the point where you can figure it out in a normal amount of time, but not necessarily site reading)? Ive only been reading for a couple of months and I dont really practice it as much as I should. Sometimes I read/write and get it perfectly, but sometimes I get stumped.

Ive been reading for like a year almost(really less because i didnt do **** with it in the summer) Rest marks are what **** me up... i always forgot over the line and under the line. Most of the time the bassclef stuff im reading funk stuff and theres alot of rests in those tunes. For the most part im reading treble, i play alot of melodies.

Just practice. Eventually you will subdivide the rhythms without actually doing it, like a guitar pro measure playing in your head.

just slow it down, think it through and practice that. it's like learning the notes, once the notes become natural to you, you'll start getting rhythms more easily.

When you guys play this, do you fret the G in the opening line, or do you play it open?

Hey I just stumbled across this thread and thought I could offer some good advice. If you want to get better at reading rhythms then do this, go out and get yourself a book for drummers called "Syncopation" by Ted Reed, Go through it with a metronome (the metronome is of paramount importance to this process) and count out loud as you do (also important). It has left and right hand rhythms that you do simultaneously while counting and it covers every possible rhythm in every possible arrangement, go through each exercise and master it then switch hands and do it again, if you do this properly for 20 min a day I promise you that you will be reading rhythms easily by the end of that week. It really really works, seriously.
