Music reading

The first benefit, in the process of reading music, is that a guitar student will learn where every note is placed on the guitar. As a trained guitarist, I find that it is helpful, when playing with other musicians, to be aware of these placements in the event that those who are playing with me can direct me by calling out the changes at the appropriate time. If the bass player or another guitarist gives me a key, I have the acquired knowledge that will allow me to play a lead that will fit in with that key, because I know where the root note, or, {the first note of a scale} is and from there I can determine which scale I want to play.

Equally important to this matter is the fact that the ability to read music teaches the student, by assigning a time value to each given note, how to develop the discipline of counting out whole, half, quarter, eighth, and sixteenth notes, which in turn allows the guitarist to create musical nuances that are important when playing both rhythm and lead.
After many hours of reading music, rhythm becomes intrinsic and listening skills improve because stimulating the visual sense as well as the auditory reinforces the guitarist’s musicality. After all, music is a language and like any language to be fully understood, it must be read, practiced, and written.

Composition, or the process of writing music, is, I believe, the centre that exists at the very core of any musical artist, and while it is not necessary to know how to read or how to write musical notation, the ability to do so will inherently enhance a guitarist’s original works. Structuring music on a piece of paper or placing notes on a computer program gives the writer the visual aid of precision. It ensures that time signatures and key signatures are being obeyed within the constraints that he/she defines at the beginning of the composition. In the process of recording, the writing of any musical notation will reveal itself as a check and balance to ensure the quality of the final product.

The discipline of reading musical notation is a skill well-worth learning for any guitarist. Even the great Jimmy Page took brief lessons, if for no other reason than to play written music as a hired studio musician, and perhaps he felt, as I do, that musical notation is the universal language that allows musicians to communicate and create great works of art in harmonious fashion.
