Reading Music For Guitar - Low E String Notes Reading Music For Guitar - Open D String Notes

Ok, we are now going to tackle the notes on the open A string.

As before, shown is the fretboard and where the notes are on it. Make sure that you have these notes memorized before you go onto the example.

Once you have them memorized, you can play the below example, which combines all of the open strings, as well as the new notes you have learned and the notes of the low E string as well. Because we now have more notes to deal with, it would be wise to take this one bar at a time to start off. But as before, make sure that you are clapping and singing the rhythms aloud before attempting to play this on the guitar.
