Back in Guitar Fundamentals 1, you learned how to read tablature. Tablature is a guitar-player's way of notating which notes to play on which strings, allowing you to read melodies, riffs, etc.

But guitar tab only speaks to guitar players.

In this set of lessons, we will learn the very basics of reading standard musical notation. This is the universal written language of music. Now you, and all other musicians, can literally be on the same page as to how the music is supposed to go!
