I might be wrong about this, but for Lisa McCormick's beginner lesson on Blues Fingerstyle, Lesson #2 appears to have incorrect music notation based on the walk-through noted in the video for that Lesson. Instead, I think the notation should be as follows: https://www.dropbox.com/s/50z6mulj80hah28/Lesson%202%20-%2012-Bar%20Blues%20-%20Corrected.jpg

Dear Roxweb,

You are right indeed! Thanks so much for spotting that. I will bring it to the attention of the transcriber and see about getting it fixed.
Good looking out!

Hi Lisa many thanks for your fantastic tuition in GF1 & GF2 the clarity of you teaching makes all the difference. Moved onto EZ Fingestyle Blues with has been a real challenge but fantastic and changed the direction of my learning moving forward However there are several errors in the notation of which lesson two has been pointed out some 7 years ago and is still without correction! This is not the only notation in the course that contains errors the hammer on notation (L7) is again incorrect. I have seen from other posts that this is not your area of responsiblity but disappointed that firstly these are not proof checked but more so that after seven years after being notified they have not been corrected.

I asked our notation team to have a look at this & it should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads up!

It should be noted that the notation is from the performance track at the end of each lesson or tutorial.

Hope that helps!

The number 1 on the G string of the tablature indicates to play the note at the 1st fret of that string. That's what all the numbers in tablature indicate: the fret to play.

Normally paraenthesis indicate a note held over from the last time it was played or a lightly played, almost implied note.

I think that G# is a little of both! Lisa is still holding the G# so it's still ringing. And when she lifts her finger up to play the open G she gets a slight pull-off motion, slightly setting the G string ringing. That second part is very subtle & not that crucial. The most important part is just to hold the G# until you need to play the G.

Hope that helps!
