GUEST,Walking Eagle Playing by ear vs. sight-reading (44) RE: Playing by ear vs. sight-reading 25 May 02

I'm paper trained as well as ear trained. I got my ear training form just plain watching and listening. I'd say, take lessons and listen. Written compositions can offer a new way of playing an old tune. Listening can can offer a few new bends, pull offs and hammer ons etc. that can add color to your playing. Just remember to HAVE FUN with what ever method you choose!
