Tips on Learning to Read Music

1)  Learn the Note Names
If you have a good ear you might be able to figure out how to play songs, but if you’re interested in really growing as a guitar player it’s going to take some time sitting down with flash cards or labeling the notes of your music to be a good reader. Basically, find ways to drill your note names until they are very familiar to you.

2) Avoid Looking at the Fretboard
You may be used to looking at the fretboard as you play music. If you are it’s time to break that habit and form another one that will help you be a great sight reader. Work very hard to keep your eyes on the sheet music. You probably already know what you need to do with your left hand. It’s just a matter of moving your eyes to the sheet music and stay committed to developing this good habit. In a few weeks it will be second nature and you’ll be on your way to being a far better guitarist.

3) Practice Sightreading
Buy an easy book of guitar music or find easy pieces online like the ones above that provide a chance to sight read new music. Read one of these new pieces every day. Read it top to bottom two or three times and then move on to the next piece tomorrow. The more music you can put in front of yourself the better sight reader you will be. It will also be far less difficult to learn new pieces at your level.

12 Nursery Rhymes for Beginner Guitar | Guitar Sheet Music with TAB

The first English collections of nursery rhymes is found in Tommy Thumb’s Song Book and and it’s sequel, Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book. Both nursery rhyme song books consider Mary Cooper to be the author, and the publication to be in London sometime before 1744. Because of their association with these books some of the songs became known as ‘Tommy Thumb’s songs. Thomas Carnan, is considered to be the first to use the term ‘Mother Goose’ when he published his English nursery rhyme compilation, ‘Mother Goose’s Melody,’ in London, 1780. These nursery rhymes have come to us from a variety of sources including proverbs, riddles, ballads, lines from plays, and historical events. Half of our traditional English nursery rhymes that we might consider Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes were known by the mid-18th century.
