Theory worksheets for Rainbow Guitar

There is a set of theory worksheets for Rainbow Guitar, as a free download on this site.

There are five worksheets in all, closely following the progression of the book. Pupils can do them as revision or consolidation, and also to develop the skill of reading good old plain black notes (essential of course in order to move on to other, more advanced guitar books and music).

All the worksheets feature a range of tasks:

  • making the link to the coloured notes in the book
  • making the link to tablature and fingerboard drawings (and other ways of writing the fingering in guitar music)
  •  learning to read the notes without any of these aids
  • thinking about rhythm and metre as well as pitch recognition
