You're Literate! - You're Numerate! - You're Musicate!

iReadGuitar Pro


iReadGuitar Pro teaches you the essentials of sight reading music on the guitar. It has forty lessons and it's for guitarists of all styles.

You'll learn to read ahead – like the pros, and you'll come to understand what musical symbols mean and how they work.

No previous knowledge of music theory is assumed. If you can play chords and simple riffs that's all you need.

You pick up that vital read-ahead skill in the first nine lessons, where you read from bar-by-bar displays. Then you consolidate it over the following lessons with sheet music-style presentations.

iReadGuitar is the taster app for iReadGuitar Pro. It gives you the first ten of this unique and pioneering course for free. The up-dated version will also be available in February 2021.

The iReadGuitar Pro Mission

The iReadGuitar Pro app’s mission is to guide guitarists of all styles and levels towards playing standard musical notation at sight efficiently and confidently.

Course structure and content

The course is organised into 60 sections. Each section teaches only one new musical element at a time.

The information screens

The information screen is the first part of each section. You see a new musical element on-screen, with a pictorial explanation.

The exercise screens

At the beginning of each musical workout, the screen is static.

Playing through the exercises

When you are ready to play you tap the screen. The tempo buttons, and the number of the workout will disappear.

The accompaniments

The accompaniments are all on the beat. They are chords or single notes, and give a solid reassuring basis to play along with.

The three principles of good sight-reading

Read ahead, Don’t name the notes. Keep your eyes on the score.
