Aria

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 minutes / day

How to practice it most efficiently: Go through your notes one bar a time to begin with (bars are separated by a vertical line on the music). After you can play through one bar, try the next and then try playing them together. Continue with this approach and see how much of the song you can play through! Use your same numbered finger for the fret you’re playing. (Index=1, middle=2, ring=3, pinky=4 ; use finger 1 for fret 1 etc.)
