Note Reading for Guitar Jump-Start

Start reading music for guitar with this free course, which follows the first lessons of The Missing Method for Guitar Note Reading Series Book 1: Note Reading in the Open Position.

Learn the Basics & Start Playing

Through a series of video lessons, I will walk you through the basics of reading music, how to keep time, and how to play various rhythms. Then you'll learn to read and play notes on the first string. By the time you've finished, you'll have a foundation in reading music so you can continue through the rest of the book at your own pace.

Why Note Reading Matters

Sure, you can play guitar without ever learning to read notation. However, learning to read sheet music opens up a world of possibilities to guitar players. Not only does it keep you from relying on chord charts and tablature, but it helps you understand music theory and write your own music.
