and what if the student joins a band and someone in that band writes a song out in standard notation and puts it in front of said student? I haven't been in one band, garage band or other wise, that didn't write out songs in standard notation.

and that's why guitar players aren't taken seriously in the music world. And why exactly can't a guitar player strum a few chords using notation? It's a stupid attitude to have that as a guitar player you don't need to learn how to read music. And it's the wrong attitude to have. And btw, when I teach kids open chords, I write them out in notation.

I guess guitar players are morons then. Saxophone players don't have tab, piano players don't use tab. In fact, only guitar players use tab. I guess guitar players are just really ######ing stupid and are incapable of comprehending what every other musician on the planet can do from the start. None of my friends who play guitar read tab. They all read music and none of them are classical music players. We all learn how to play songs and write songs and such as actually musicians. It doesn't matter what genre it is.

What the hell is wrong with guitar players? How come every other instrumentalist learns how to read music but guitar players try to rationalize it away? It's because of stupid crap like that that has made us the joke of the music world. You tell someone you're a guitar player and they already have a bias to you. There is no reason why one would should not learn to read music. If you're going to be a musician then be a damn musician.

Or if they actually care about being a musician they'll learn to read music.
