Sight Reading Introductory Exercise 8

Melody Notes

Make note of the B♭ that shows up on measure 6. There’s also a G♯ on measures 15 and 18.

The melody uses half notes, which is a whole note split into two pieces. You should count four even beats for every whole note, but when you see the half notes, count two beats.


This should be read in Position I or Position V. (In the open position or at the Vth fret.) It is recommended to read it in both positions.
