You’ll gain new insight into the songs you learn if you can read the dots. TG shows you how
After last month’s primer on the notes of the stave, this time we’re throwing you in at the deep end with four music reading exercises. And with no tab to assist you, this may be quite a challenge. Still, the best way to get to grips with reading music is to just have a go – there aren’t really any shortcuts. We’ve provided the information you need to get started; begin by familiarising yourself with the notes on the fretboard and how they correspond to the musical stave. If you’re struggling, take a listen to the audio tracks on the TG CD to guide you.
