If you play a string instrument and want to learn the notes on each strings, the notes on music staff, etc. the FretTrainer APP is good. There are 6 instruments available to practice on: Guitar, Bass, 5-String Bass, Mandolin, Ukulele, Banjo.
It is especially useful if you already know the basic chords. It may be a little confusing if you don’t know what the basic chords are – for example, the basic chord for ‘C’ is in the bottom 2 rows…the top left one, of course.
If you don’t know the basic ones, you may want to just look for the most simplified chord (fewest fingers and closest to the nut or the head of the ukulele.
It should be a big (okay, a ‘HUGE’) help to those that are looking for more chords!
This is an excellent and short tutorial on how to read music. It is only 5 minutes long and offers a good foundation to get started reading music. It is short enough that you can (and should) watch it several times until you understand it.
If you play a string instrument and like any of these styles of music (Bluegrass, Old-Timey, Celtic, Gypsy-Jazz, etc.) you may like this Website – it offers free backing recordings for playing along with. You can slow down or speed them up.
There is also a section of common Chord Progressions to practice.
