I do practice sight reading some.. I usually listen to the track and read along or read on it's own. I just don't really care for reading while I play..
I can't stay focused on the sheet.. I want to watch my hands! It's like playing in the dark.. leads me to fumble.
I do totally appreciate your advice and I do work on my reading some. It's not all or nothing, I just put up the sheets when it's time to record
If I got a music stand.. It would be much easier on me to try to read while playing, but knowing myself, as soon as I commit the piece/phrase to memory, I'm gonna want to watch my left or right hand play, whichever one is struggling more.
I'll keep it all in mind, I do need to get a music stand and try to make myself sight read more while playing.
My name is mud.
