  • PART 1 - 12 Notes of Music | Guitar Tuning | Finger exercise

    12 NOTES IN MUSIC - TAA DAAAAAM!! Here are the 12 notes used in Western music. Made up of 7 natural notes and 5 sharp notes. We will be applying these to the fretboard in the lessons to come. If we had to translate this to Piano; the 7 natural notes would be the white keys and the 5 sharp notes are the black keys, as shown on the image above, these then keep on repeating along the full keyboard ... easy no? HOW TO TUNE THE GUITAR In the Diagram to the right we have a famous sentence which we will take the first letter of each word to denote the string notes that make up the "Guitar Open Tuning". Starting from the ticker bass strings that would be read as follows: Eddie Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie = E - A - D - G - B - E FINGER EXERCISE & WARM UP Here we have a picking exercise which will help co-ordinate both hands together. This exercise is built to improve ones ability to play single notes, as well as works on consistency and clarity of sound, not to mention rhythm. The numbers indicate the fingers on your left hand (given you're a right handed guitarist), the arrows next to the numbers indicate the directions to which we can do this exercise; therefore we can start with the ticker string E; 1, 2, 3, 4 down to the next string; A 1, 2, 3, 4 etc... and then take another exercise starting from the thinner string E; 4, 3, 2, 1 up to the next string B; 4, 3, 2, 1 etc...

Sun-Sounds ​ The structure and content of lessons will be individually designed according to the needs and desires of the student. Our tutor will pay close attention to your opinion, your experience with music, your goals and dreams.
