Also, guitar is read an octave down. And those note heads that are diamonds instead of ovals are harmonics. or I suppose you could read them as 8va. Which means an octave up. Just a way of condensing things (so you don't have to read ledger lines above the staff)

Good luck, man. It gets really easy the more you do it.

Oh, and bro. Lemme tell you how you read standard notation as a guitarist. You go by scale degree (as in numbers). So, for example. This thing is in the key of C, because there's a blank key signature. No sharps. No flats.

So, C D E F G A B C becomes
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1

So, the first line (and you will want to print the music off and write numbers above it) is:

6-4-2-4-6-2 4-2-6-2-4-6-2-4

Pay attention to what octave you're in! Also, the reasons you wouldn't read this in A minor is because you always want to lick at it from the major scale perspective.

OH! LEARN YOUR MAJOR SCALE SHAPES. C shape, A shape, G shape, E shape, D shape. This is refered to as the CAGED system. It's just movable major scale shapes. That's where the numbers come in.

Any questions (as I totally could have missed something to explain) just ask
