Description
Here comes a book with really fresh ideas just at the right time.
The two authors John Kember and Martin Beech are profound experts on guitar didactic problems. They present a compendium of pieces arranged in progressive order that is without equal. Due to the guitar's specific fingering, sight-reading is, by tradition, a real pain for all generations of guitar players. By cleverly splitting the learning steps, the two authors have succeeded in creating a consistent and practical concept of easy to medium difficulty.
Most important approach: all pieces without fingerings!
In combination with a textbook and selected accompanying literature, teachers and pupils will certainly greatly enjoy the exercises and pieces.
This book will turn a budding guitarist into a mature musician!
(Dieter Kreidler)
