I have been playing bass guitar for years now but have never been able to read music, as i have always done it by ear. I am attending a Music course at Perth college and need to be able to sight read.
I have previously played the violin which gave me a basic understanding of treble clef (i have forgotten most of it) is there an easy way to learning bass clef quickly?

I hope this helps!
