READING  MUSIC  -  3RD  STRING  (Left Handed)
The Notes on the 3rd String we will learn to read are  G & A with the Charts for this page created for Left-Handed guitarists.   As you can see on these charts, the Note G is played as the 3rd String Open, while A is played with the Right Hand 2nd finger on the 2nd Fret:

Fingering:  Open String
2nd Finger
   
Notation:            G                             A

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.

Note: The 3rd exercise uses all of the notes from the 1st, 2nd & 3rd strings as a review.

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.
