Want to learn to read music for the guitar?

Renowned guitar author David Mead uses his 30 years of experience as a teacher and player to help smooth your path towards a total understanding of music notation for the instrument.

This comprehensive app includes over 120 pages of expert tuition in reading music. Each of the 20 lessons is split into two parts - pitch and rhythm - so you’ll learn quickly and easily. “Over the years I've found that people learn to read faster if you look at pitch and rhythm separately,” David says. “That way you don’t have to concentrate on too much new information all at once. Once you’re confident with both of these elements, it becomes a simple task to fuse the two together - and voila, you’re reading music.”

Each fully illustrated lesson contains interactive assignments to check your progress - try the examples on your guitar and then let the app play you the answers to see if you were right!

'Learning to read and write music opens so many doors for you - amongst other things it frees you from the chains of tab and will allow you to truly understand, re-voice and re-interpret music in your own way. This will certainly make you a better musician and perhaps most importantly you will become more 'employable' too… Not a bad thing at all in this day and age!"
- Phil Hilborne

Looks OK but Basic!!

I have used several of David's publications and Apps and have found them very practical and helpful. I am persevering with this App which is quite basic in structure and could do with improvement. In particular it offers no way of confirming where you are i.e.page numbers or separation between lessons, and exercises. Some exercises have the same numbers in each lesson which really confuses the issue. A progress chart would also help the learner to keep track! Any chance of an update?
