No attempt is made in this little tutor to teach reading from

music is now published with the necessary notation specially
marked for the instrument.
By reference to the finger-board chart (p. 5) the following
diagrams as used for marking the chords will be readily understood.
This is the fingering of         D chord
Press the tip of the 3rd finger on the 1st string immediately
behind the 3rd fret to make the note D (refer to fingering illustrated
p. 8'. The other strings will not require to be stopped by the fingers
as the\ are already tuned to notes of the chord of D. Now strum
all four strings as directed under the heading Strumming.
Strings which are played without stopping (open strings) are of
course left unmarked.
In a similar way the chord of
may be made by stopping thus (again refer to fingering
illustrated d. 8).
