Middle E, Line 1
We begin with a single note, Middle E. The line on the left connecting the staff and tab = Same Thing. Tab = Notation. These reading exercises are simple and prove that you can read music on guitar.
To Know → Middle E = Line 1 = 4 string, fret 2.
Say it with me: the first line of the staff is Middle E, & it can be played on the 4th string, 2nd fret.
We have shown this E as a quarter, yet it can and will appear as different durations (whole, half, quarter, eighth, sixteenth, etc.).
