Rud iments o f musi c The stave Music i s written o n a grid of five line s called a stave. At the beginnin g of eac h stave is placed a special symbol calle d a clef to describ e the approximat e rang e of the instrumen t for whic h the musi c i s written . This example show s a treble clef, generally use d for melody instruments . The stave i s divided int o equa l section s of time , called bars or measures, by barlines.

Note values Different symbol s ar e used to sho w the time valu e of notes, and each note value ha s an equivalent symbo l for a rest, representing silence .

Before you play : • Tunin g peg s

Which guitar? The standard acoustic, or 'Western' style guitar, has steel strings. Be sure the body of the guitar is not too big for the player comfortably to reach the strings with the right hand. Always keep a spare set of strings in the case, and a cloth for wiping away moisture after playing.

Right hand technique whichever i s mor e comfortable .

Play the strings either with the thumb or fingers of the right hand, in a gentle plucking motion. The hand should stay relaxed: aim for an easy, fluid stroke. Count ou t lou d a s you pla y the f o l l o w i n g exercises .

Exercise i : Semibreves last for four beats. Pluck the string and let it ring while steadily counting 1, 2, 3, 4. The sound should begin with the first count and last until the end of each bar. Minims last for two beats each. Play the first note in each bar with a count of 1, 2 before playing the next note with a count of 3, 4.

Crotchets last for one beat. Tou should be playing one note for each of the counts 1,2,3,4.

New chords D7

In this chord the 1st finger should form a barre across the top two strings on the first fret. This is shown by the arched symbol in the diagram. Roll the 1st finger onto the outside edge for the best contact - and don't squeeze too hard! Placement is more important than pressure here.

Chord families Often a song will us e a group o f chord s t h a t 'relate' : man y song s us e exactly th e sam e se t o f chords . The mos t commo n chord s i n a particular ke y ar e the chord s whic h hav e their bas s note s o n th e first , fourt h and f i f t h note s o f the scale . Here are all the simple three-note bords in the key of C. The I, IV and V chords are all major, and are the most ommon chords to use within a key.

In the ke y o f C , these ar e C , F and G . In the ke y o f G they woul d b e G, C and D . Roman numeral s ar e use d to describ e th e positio n o f eac h chor d w i t h i n a key , so these chord s woul d b e calle d I, IV and V . Often chor d V i s a '7' chord: s o i n C , for instance , G would becom e G 7 ; in G , chord V would b e D7 rather tha n plai n D .

Finger picking The righ t han d t h u m b play s the bas s strings whil e the 1st , 2nd an d 3r d fingers pla y the uppe r strings . The 4th finge r i s no t use d i n picking .

Bass pick strumming Many guitar picking and strumming techniques aim to emulate, or reflect, the sound of a band. Bass picking gives a typical 'boom-ching boom-ching' feel that would normally be played by the drums, bass and piano together. Try to keep this sound in mind as you work through this lesson.

Picking with two fingers together In the following pieces , the fingers ar e often require d t o pluc k mor e than on e strin g a t the sam e time . Make sur e the correc t finger i s chosen for eac h strin g to avoi d confusio n an d kee p the flow .

Generally, for finge r picking , the three fingers pla y the top thre e string s a s shown, while th e t h u m b plays the bas s strings .

Passing bass notes Often, a bass lin e will includ e note s that hel p to 'move ' from on e chor d to the next . Look at Creensleeves, for example : i n the first ba r the bas s line walks u p from A . The B is the not e that step s betwee n A and C . In ba r 3 an i

s played to ste p

between G and the E i n the followin g bar . These intermediate note s ar e know n a s passing notes. Greensleeves includes many passin g note s an d alternatin g bas s note s that giv e a n interestin g counter-melody t o the tune .
