much excellent advice so far. the only thing i can add is to suggest getting dave
stewart's book on learning to read music. short paperback, written in the inimitable dave
stewart manner of irreverence and deep knowledge. btw, this is the dave stewart of prog
rock fame (egg, hatfield and the north, national health, bill bruford band, ....). great
