The Art of Classical Guitar Volume 1 – A Complete Method (Elementary)
Format: Digital Download (PDF)
One of the most comprehensive books ever written for the serious player starting classical guitar, this 134 page volume takes the absolute beginner all the way through to approximately a 2nd grade public examination level.
It is intended for one-to-one tuition with a teacher, but may be used for small groups (2 or 3 persons) where it is part of a specific learning program. As well, many mature-age students have completed this book through their own self-instruction in situations where a teacher has not been available.
The book contains detailed instructions, explanations, photos, diagrams, and guides the student through all the early stages of establishing music-reading and technical skills. It is broadly divided into 3 sections of study;
- rest stroke technique; single-line melodies and two-part solos
- free stroke; developing right-hand arpeggio technique, applied solos
- repertoire; guitar solos of both traditional and new classical guitar composers.
