1. What scale is being used by means of the key signature.
2. How loudly or quietly to play those notes; dynamics.
3. What qualities those notes should have; such as staccato (sharp & disconnected) or legato (smooth & connected); phrasing & timbre.
In the video I explain that playing music on the guitar can be further complicated by the ability to play more than one note at a time! I use Beethoven's "Ode To Joy" in two voices in order to demonstrate this idea. I also provide an example of how to "read ahead" in music in order to make your playing sound more musical.
I hope this gives you a good introduction to the essential skill of reading music. The sooner you learn this skill the quicker your ability to play music will greatly improve. And in the end that is what all this stuff is about!
Happy playing ... and reading!
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
