Item Description...
The guitar is one of the most versatile of musical instruments, and can be used to play a huge variety of musical styles, such as folk, country, blues, rock, pop, jazz, classical, and even flamenco. Learning to play it can be complicated, but it needn't be, as THE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO PLAYING GUITAR so expertly shows.
In the experienced teaching hands of Douglas J. Noble, players who haven't touched a guitar before, nor have any prior musical knowledge, can easily learn the basics. All the musical examples included here have been written to be played by a total neophyte, with easy-to-understand notation and straightforward timing.
Chapters include:
- Getting Started
- Guitar Music Notation
- Major and Seventh Chords
- Minor Chords and Seventh Chords
- Minor Chords and Ear Training
- The Twelve Bar Blues
- Classical Guitar
- Completing the Open String Chords
- Barre Chords
- Music Theory
- The Blues Scale
- Jazz
- Discography
- Glossary
Though the book does contain some actual songs, it concentrates on material written specifically to improve a certain aspect of playing. Readers will work progressively through a variety of styles-from classical to rock, blues to jazz-with the end in mind that each style influences the other.
Advocating a practice routine of ten to fifteen minutes a day, Noble stresses a basic, no-nonsense approach that will have even the tone-deaf strumming away in days.
