Definitely one of the first songs everyone should learn. And certainly a song that everyone should know in general, it’s quick and easy. Check it out!
At first when you’re learning guitar it can be tricky remembering what fingers, frets and strings. So to make it a bit easier I have found some great riffs that you can play with just one finger! Good luck and have fun!
What are all these strange symbols? Music theory is amazing! It is a universally used language between instruments. After a few videos you will be able to read and write sheet music for yourself, for other guitarists and even for other instruments! Music theory is a brilliant skill to have and a force to be reckoned with. Having a small grasp on theory and guitar tab can make your musical journey so much fun!
The circle of 5ths is a way of working out key signatures. It will really help find out what notes you can use when composing your own songs or when learning works of other people.
There are different musical staves in sheet music. The treble stave covers a wide range which fits the guitar really nicely. Understanding this theory will get you reading and writing music in no time!
Part 2 of our work on Understanding notes on the treble stave. If you made it through the first part you can certainly finish the second part, good luck!
Now that we can read the Treble Stave lets have a look at the other half of the picture the bass notes found in the bass stave. The range of the guitar extends down to the bass stave so it’s a great idea to have an understanding of both staves.
This is the all important stage of putting both staves together to form the grand stave! You can do it!
Reading and writing sheet music is one thing, but we need to learn how to connect this information to our instruments! Check it out!
Now that you understand where the notes can be found and what the notes are lets have a look at the other side of the coin with what rests or silences are and how to write them.
