Beginner Guitar Lesson 8 : Reading Notes (part 1)

Previous Next Report Error

In this lesson we will learn the basics of reading notes on your guitar

Reading notes is really quite easy.

If you think of written music as a picture of sound, it makes more sense. Take the staff you learned about in lesson 6:

Think about the staff as a ladder, but a ladder where you can step on both lines and spaces. Just like going up a ladder, when you go up a staff, the notes get higher, and lower when you go downwards. When you are familiar with the notes on your instrument, then you just follow them on the staff - as they go up and down, your fingering goes up and down.
