I was just reading the standard notation vs tab topic thread and it got me excited about brushing up on my standard reading.
I can read some of the basics (I can tell you where a 'B' is on the staff, how many flats or sharps go in a given key signature, and how to count, etc), but I don't know a lot about music theory or how it relates to the mandolin fretboard...
I feel I need a good logical system to show me how it all fits together. I was wondering if the book "Standard Notation for the Tab-Addicted Mandolinist" by Debora Chen would be a good starting point.
Any opinions or other ideas out there?
