Sight Reading Practice
Karl had told Alex and I we should do 5 minutes of sight reading with pieces we had not seen each time we practiced. Alex, who may be knowingly, has been teaching me things about playing CG, and he brought a couple of score collection books to our practice. We didn't attempt them on the spot, he left me a couple of scores and I found one additional piece that appealed to me.
After dinner (and my nightly snooze watching the TV news) I brought out the music and played them. I was happy to be able to just read these and play them at sufficient tempo to hear and recognize the melodies. In fact, also thanks to Alex, I started to play parts in the higher frets (until I lost the notes)
These are easy level guitar pieces, but, they have pleasant and familiar melody. Beethoven, Op 119 No 9, Beethoven Für Elise, and traditional, El Choclo,
It is gratifiying that finally, my fingers are finding the notes as I see them, that LH and RH are coordinating, and most of the time the tone is full and rich. I'm starting to feel like a musician
Cheers all. Ray
