Re: Learning by reading notes not numbers

I am curious as to other people's experience weaning themselves off of the finger numbers and note letters when reading the music.

chord reference

Hi, I think it would be useful to have some chord notations in the sheet music to signal the switch in hand position. when learning a new piece of music (without video instruction) it is time consuming to have to figure out when is the most efficient time to switch. Chord notation would make that a ...

There is a Rookie bootcamp lesson for Offenbach's Can-Can but it is not in the available songs. Any plans?
