Lesson 4 : Reading Guitar Tablature & Finger Exercises

Reading Guitar Tablature
TABLATURE is a type of musical notation that guitarists have developed to describe what strings on the guitar are being
played at any point and what frets need to be fingered.

Finger Exercises
These finger exercises are designed to build coordination between your right and left hand. Proper picking and fingering hand
coordination is vital to good controlled guitar playing.
Directions: Play each finger pattern on each string. Start on the first string, then the second, third, etc... Although a little difficult
at first, these exercises quickly build the motor skill control needed to play the guitar effectively. Practice with an even,
steady rhythm. The goal is control, not speed.
