Hi guys,

I'm wanting to get into sheet reading (reading musical notation). I know *how* to read sheet music (I can identify the key signiture, time signiture and what notes are what - the pitch and the rhythmic value), however I can't read it and play it if you know what I mean, I can't sight-read/play.

What I need it a book which is just loads of sheet music that I can play on guitar, at varying degrees of difficulty (starting easy and getting harder), preferably with recorded examples too so I can check how accurate I am against someone who can actually do it.

Does anyone know of such a book/resource? I found a few books of just like bach pieces and the like but I kinda need something a bit easier to start off with.

Cheers,
-Adam

You could look at David Oakes
Book on reading for guitarists
It's used at GIT.
I know you say you know how to read but it
gives you lots of practice of reading rhythms, note groupings etc to really solidify
each step.
I'd be really good if I had the discipline to use it daily
