The result of decades of experience in teaching the classical guitar, this method introduces the student to the earliest stages of learning how to play the classical guitar, from learning how to read music to becoming an accomplished player. This gradually progressing approach covers scales, including scales in thirds, sixths and octaves in all major and minor keys, arpeggios, chords, slurs, harmonics, and more. The technical aspects in this book are supplemented with a vast number of exercises and solos, from easy to more advanced, including repertoire music to make the process of learning to play the guitar a most enjoyable experience. Written in standard notation only.
