Chances are you have a classical guitar lying around the house somewhere. It may have been your first guitar. A good reason to bring it out is to learn a couple of easy songs for it. Plucking a nylon guitar is fun.
These songs, which are not difficult to play, were studies written by the great Fernando Sor, a major composer for the classical guitar from the 18th century.
We have a video on YouTube which teaches you how to play 3 songs of Sor: Op 60 No 1, Op 60 No 2 and Op 31 No 1. Not exactly memorable names like Hotel California or Stairway to Heaven but that’s the way classical music goes. Hey, don’t judge the quality of music from the titles!
In the video’s beginning, I have a brief section where I teach easy sight reading skills. It will help you to read guitar notes off a music sheet. It’s a brief section of less than two minutes.
So within 2 minutes you can learn to read some sheet music! How about that? And you can carry on from there learning to play 3 easy pieces as well.
Here’s the video if you have not seen it before.
