Hello Steve, There is an excelent article concerning sight reading on
the Edmonton guitar society page. One of the points made is that you
must know the neck of the guitar competely. I made myself flash cards
for this with the notated note (Finale Primer) on one side of the card
and all the geographical locations of the note on the other side of the
card. You can make up various exercises with these cards; all the
notes on one string, notes in a position, notes above the staff, notes
below the staff...etc
Also know your rhythms to. I used books by Bruce Arnold for this but
there are others also; Robert Starer's books comes to mind. These are
just two things to do. Anything you do to increase your knowlege of
music will help.
good luck, Lane

I am learning classical guitar and piano. Does anyone have recommendations
for software or books that I should get to improve my sight reading?
