READING  GUITAR  MUSIC  -  2ND  STRING  (Left Handed)
The Notes on the 2nd String we will learn to read are  B  C & D with the Charts for this page created for Left-Handed guitarists.   As you can see on these charts, the Note B is played as the 2nd String Open, C is played by holding your Right Hand 1st finger on the 1st Fret while D is played with the Right Hand 3rd finger on the 3rd Fret:

Fingering:  Open String
1st Finger
3rd Finger
     
Notation:  B                 C                 D

TIPS
- Say the Note names to yourself as you play them to help remember them until you know them.

- Don't lift your fingers too high off the fretboard, a 1/4" at most will do.   The higher you lift your fingers the slower your playing will be due to wasted movement.

- Keep the Thumb of your fretboard hand flat at the middle of the back of the fretboard neck.   This will provide you with more control, better reach and faster motion.

There are 3 versions of each of the same exercises below:
- The first version just plays back the Guitar Notes on the score.
- The second version adds a Bass Guitar and Drum Kit to the Guitar.
- The third version only plays back the Bass Guitar and Drums but has the Guitar score for you to follow along with.

We have also included Guitar TAB with each Score for all exercises for reference and to assist those that know TAB but wish to learn how to read music AND for those that can already Read Music but want to learn TAB due to the wealth of Guitar TAB only scores.
