Stepping and Skipping
Talk your way through using the words between the notes.
Stepping is knowing our key signature [Circle of 5ths and Lines of 7] and just moving to the next tone in the scale, up or down.
Skipping includes knowing the key signature plus interval shapes.
Reading guitar music becomes more automatic when we think this way [rather than "this is an e, now this is the d"].
