Learning Guitar Sight Reading On Guitar

Learning to read traditional music notation on the guitar is usually not the first thing that guitarists consider unless they come from a classical guitar background. Due to the fact that guitar sight readingguitar players get scales, chords, arpeggios and ultimately songs together quickly, by the time that they get round to thinking about getting their reading together it’s often too late; or so they think. Getting used to TAB (tablature) means they don’t see the point in learning to read.

This podcast which is episode 1 puts the case for guitar players of all ages and styles to reconsider and challenge their thoughts on learning to read music.
