michael sam wild Posted September 6, 2008 Share Posted September 6, 2008 The Anglo is the first instrument that led me to tackling notation. I needed a diagram for fingering and cross row work. Other instruments, I've done it all by ear. I found Abc pretty helpful and now sem to be able to play slowly from the dots in tunebooks. Usually helps if I'd heard the tune before. Just recently I was showing my grandughter the scale on the piano and we did a diagram of Doh, Re, Mi etc using the colours of the rainbow. Nicely an'octave'! She enjoyed that A friend at Whitby told me he has a friend who 'sees' tunes in various colours. I'm now looking into work by Kodaly etc to see if that sort of work can further enhance my reading facility. I don't get the mathematics of music but that may be a legacy of bullying teachers and my natural rebelliousness which made me switch off. Any useful ideas gratefully received. I found Roger Digby's workshop at Whitby very helpful this year Mike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
