AbstractThis course is intended for experienced guitarists who can already read guitar tablature and would like to learn how to read common notation. Common notation is the standard notes-on-a-staff notation that allow you as a guitarist to share written music with people who play other instruments, such as piano or flute. Many guitar method books teach common notation using repetitive exercises that are useful for beginning guitarists but not ideal for experienced players. This course relies instead on you to supply practice music that is appropriate for your skill level and interesting to you as a musician. This is a short, experimental learning-by-doing course meant to get you started with deciphering common notation, rather than a comprehensive course covering all aspects of the notation.
