Following on from his hugely successful JustinGuitar.com Beginner’s Course and his songbooks for guitar, celebrated guitar tutor Justin Sandercoe and his friend and session guitar master Dario Cortese have created a detailed and comprehensive guide to reading music notation for guitarists.
This book has been specially created for any guitarist who wants to learn note reading, be they beginners or more advanced players who have neglected this part of their musicianship. It starts with the very basics of written music and progressively introduces notes on each string one at a time until all notes in the "open position" (first five frets) of the guitar have been mastered, and up to 8th note rhythm subdivisions have been learned and applied. Also covered are sharps, flats, key signatures, accidentals, repeats and more. Each step includes practical exercises, handy tips and tricks and a simple repertoire for students to put their reading skills into practice.
Volume 2 will introduce the student to notes further up the neck, position shifts and more complex rhythm subdivisions. Expected mid 2017.
