Answers To Your Questions:
Do you have a question? Email us, or leave it in the comments below this video and I’ll try to answer those that may be helpful for others too. Here’s a short video with a question from Del and Bonnie.
Del wanted to know how to figure out the key of a song that has already started. I suggest making sure the instruments lead out so the songs will be in the same key as the music. If that isn’t possible, then ear training and knowing guitar music theory will definitely help.
He is also asking about playing without looking at the sheet music. That happens when you ‘own’ a song… when you’ve played it so much you no longer need the music. Again, knowing guitar music theory will be helpful here too since you’ll actually understand the relationship of the chords to the song.
Bonnie wanted to know about transposing songs… Anyone can learn how to transpose songs, but in the short term I suggest asking the pianist for the chords she might modulate to just to have them written out on your music.
