Transcripts

1. Introduction: In this lesson, you will learn how to read by sick guitar. Tablature had to play a C ad non cord and here to play in a minus seven court. You will also learn a new rhythm to practice, along with the practice track called Rapid Up. 2. How to read guitar tablature (TAB) : had to read guitar, tablature, guitar tablature, or tab is a special form of music notation designed especially for string instruments instead of the lines referring to a particular note, The lines on Tab refer to a particular string. The nights then have a number written on them to show what for it to play. This is an example of the guitar part written in Guitar Tab called Funk. It notice the numbers on the lines in the first bar of music. It tells us to play the note on the seventh fret on the fourth string. We don't need to know that this is an a night tab is just telling us way to put their fingers to play the night. The tab also has a trouble cliff and the timing of notes so that you know when to play the night. This is where learning the night lengths and the types of notes could become extremely useful. Let's look at a simple pace of music. As you can see, this tab shows a simple melody. We don't need to know the names of the knights to play the space of music. The tab tells us that the first night is to be played on the full string in the second Friend. The second note is to play the fourth string in the third Frighten. The third night is an open G, or ripened third string, not just zero written on the string. The next night is the second fret on the third string back to the open, third string. Then the third fret on the full string. Second fret on the fourth string and finally back to the third. Fret on the fourth string. Apply this again for you. See if you can play along here we go second, fret on the fourth string. Third fret. On the fourth string, I pin third string second fret on the third string. Back to the open, third string thin, the third fret on the fourth string. Second fret on the fourth string, and finally the third fret on the fourth string. This time, I'll play it through at a tempo so you can hear how the rhythm guys. One end to end three and four and one and 23 and four and 123 for not just the last night. Guys for the cantor. For Bates, you've now played your first guitar tab. You can find guitar tech music on the Internet for many songs, especially for guitar solos, but also for more classical or acoustic arrangements of songs. 3. Cadd9 chord: a C add nine Chord is a useful court to play as it's easy to transition from a J cord to a C and non cord. The name sounds complicated, but it just means we're adding the ninth notes starting from C, which is actually a day night. Give the guy place your first finger on the fourth string in the second front, your second finger on the fifth string in the third fret third finger on the second string in the third front and fourth finger on the first string in the third. Fret I can't you in 41234 sprung from Thing is off back on again. First finger on the fourth string in the second front second finger on the fifth string in the third. Fred third finger on the second string in the third fret and four finger on the first string in the third. Fret. I can't in one t three for strong spring practice discord. That is a great court for singers. Some writers 4. Am7 chord: a name on a seven or AM on a dominant seventh chord is very similar to, and I'm on record or you need to do is remove your third finger from a name on Accord to create a name on a seven chord place your first finger on the second string in the first front, your second finger on the fourth string in the second front. That's it. I'll canteen won t 34 Strong, strong, strong, strong fingers off back on again. First finger on the second string. First fret second finger on the fourth string. Second fret. 1234 strong, strong, strong, strong on. That's how you play and I am on a seven chord. 5. Strumming pattern: this new rhythm is a little different in that it is to bowels long to play the rhythm. Dan Wrist. Then wrist Dan up. Wrist up den wrist Dan up. Dan Wrist Dan Wrist. That's why it three slightly I'll canting one and two and three and four and Dan, Risk, Risk, risk, risk, Risk Risk and again a little bit faster will go through twice this time. One and two and three and four and down. Risk and risk there a risk up, then risked, risked and risked and risked and risk risk Risk risk. Damn breast. We use this pattern for your practice trek and remember that you'll be changing chords part way through the pattern. 6. Practice track: to play the practice trek. Wrap it up. I've included the two part rhythm pattern to make it easy for you to follow notice. We have a first and second repeat by in this arrangement. Start with the slight temp, a move up as you get more comfortable playing the to bow rhythm. 7. Wrap It Up 60 bpm: 8. Wrap It Up 70 bpm: 9. Wrap It Up 80 bpm:
