  1. As a beginner guitarist, I found this a really useful exercise. My tutor suggested that I listen to the lessons 8 through 12 and then write the notes, rests, etc onto music paper for later confirmation that I am learning musical notation properly…. and it worked! So thank you for this lesson. Are there any others I should be trying?

    • Well, there are 60 of them in my Volume 2 so you can continue on. I have a video with all of them but also will be taking closer look lessons to clarify concepts throughout this year.
