My point was, and still is, that people learn differently. I do agree that you must learn to use the ear. I merely tried to suggest that a visual learner might find it easier to start with something on the printed page and learn how to improvise more easily with this jumping off point from listening and comparing the printed page with what they might hear on a recording or from the teacher playing and by analyzing the chords and patterns they see and hear.

I'll say it again: it's a starting point.

I can tell you my experience has been that I pretty much need to see it first. My ear is not so great, as far as I can tell. Strict playing by ear I do not do very well. I have learned to improvise off of chord and lead sheets.
