Reading... Non-reading... Tab or notation, has nothing to do with playing ability, but has everything to do with accessibility and efficiency.

For me, it's mere laziness: Ignoring the mechanical aspects of the playing, I can learn a new tune/song from notation in minutes, with minimal effort.
Listening to a cd track will get you there, maybe - in time.
Looking at most tabbed pieces - forget it (unless you already are familiar with the tune or can hear it, and then, again, in time...)

Anything that reduces unnecessary effort and time wasting has to be good.

As a kid I learned to read music while learning to play the trumpet. That was over 30 years ago. When I started playing guitar a few years ago, I'd forgotten everything, but found I could work out tab quite easily. It gives me enough to try and play what I want to play.

While having some guitar lessons a year or so ago, a couple of the lessons included learning some notation. It helps a lot, but at my time of life I don't want to invest the time and effort into too much theory, I want to play for fun.

If I was younger and thought I might make something of a musician, I would definitely put the effort in.

It just depends what you want to achieve.

Ok, what you have to do now is post something about, "Are There Too Many Forums On This Board?"

That's always good for a laugh!

Apparently I've Scottish & Irish somewhere in my lineage and all kidding aside, I do love the sound of bagpipes. Although, perhaps not for long periods of time....we'll see.
