Free Guitar Lessons for Kids | Lesson 15 | Copy Play and Learn Guitar.
Updated: Mar 19
The excitement of a day watching racing cars is matched as Simon and Dorothy work through a song and discover a finger pattern! The kids' brains are challenged to make the connection between the written music and the fingerboard. Once they've found it, their memory is triggered and the song becomes easy to play.
Simon and Dorothy have already learned to play and recognise the notes on the stave of the first three open strings. Here they learn that the next note on the stave is the next note on the guitar. What looks difficult for them initially becomes easy.
