A while ago someone on here (I think it was @Phil_aka_Pip ; ) recommended a series of books on reading common rhythms, and I saved it to my amazon list, but can't find it now. Anyone remember what they were?

    I used (and still do when teaching) The Encyclopedia of Reading Rhythms by Gary Hess. There's probably better ones out there but it really helped me understand about breaking down the subdivisions and note values, etc. I was really poor at this at the beginning of my playing but this really helped me over the years.

    Justin Sandercoe and Justin Scott :  Justin Guitar Rhythm Reading.

    Louis Bellson : Modern Reading Text in 4/4.
                            : Odd Time Reading Text.

    There are a few errors in the Louis Bellson books (still it's useful to be able to pick up on these yourself). They've been around quite a while.

    One I used was William Leavitt's Melodic Rhythms for Guitar.  Old school but works (and quite cheap).  How it compares to others I don't know - it used to be THE book for this but I've no idea whether it's been superseded by something better.

    Yep, it was Louis Bellson. I found a bar of 5/4 ;)
    "Working" software has only unobserved bugs. (Parroty Error: Pieces of Nine! Pieces of Nine!)
    Seriously: If you value it, take/fetch it yourself
