Can you sight read this first try?
I'm sure John Williams can.
I need to draw chord diagrams to help with the fingering. Is that bad?
Well, there are only seven chords so you shold be able to remember them without writing them down but I think you have the right idea for a passage like this: focus on the chord changes and the rest will follow by itself. If the diagrams help you with that, by all means use them.
I made the chord diagrams to help me learn the fingering when I first learned those measures. I have them memorized now and do not have to look at them anymore when I practice the piece.
I was just wondering what goes on in someone's mind who's proficient in sight reading (without having the chord diagrams), can they actually put their fingers on the correct frets and play it with the correct tempo first time? That to me is impressive!
If anyone here can do that, please say so and claim your prize.
