Solo Guitar Playing - Volume 2 (Classical Guitar) Reviews
This can really only be read in a physical copy, not a digital one. They have scanned each page, which means you cannot change the font size. I was trying to read it on a full sized monitor and can barely make out the text.
I just received my book last week and so far so good. I've been playing guitar for many years and have always played by ear, know all the chords and can strum and finger pick various styles of music from rock to country, blues, pop, was in bands, did solo gigs, etc. After 40 years of playing steel string acoustic guitars and electric guitars, I decided to learn classical guitar and learn to read music. I am so excited! I took the advice of a reviewer here and went to Fedex Kinkos and had them put a spiral on the spine for $5.86 cents. I couldn't be happier! I'm shopping around for a classical guitar teacher but am in no hurry. For now I'm going to use the book without a teacher and am going through the exercises and lessons on my own.
I'm using this book with my weekly guitar lessons and I'm greatly pleased. I've played many instruments over the years, mostly jazz saxophone, but my longing for the guitar is now coming true. I've heard people complain about the non-spiral format and when I received this book I understood their frustration. I took the book to a book binder and within 15 minutes, $2.63 later my book has a lovely spiral binding. My teacher took his in after seeing mine and has passed this tip along to his studio.
I'm taking weekly lessons and this is the book my instructor teaches from. The material is presented very logically and methodically. Over, the past 9 months of use, I can "see" the thought and effort that went into creating and organizing the material. I feel like I'm making progress yet am constantly challenged and engaged by the material. My teacher will also sometimes jump forwards and backwards in the material when he senses my eagerness and frustration, respectively. I will always recommend beginners study with a teacher, there's simply no better way to learn classical guitar IMO. But, if you cannot afford that luxury, you can't go wrong with this book.
A classic. What more can I say. If you want to learn to play classical guitar, this is the book to use. However, if your musical abilities are rather limited, as are mine, I would suggest getting the book with the CD.I also agree that this should also be offered in a spiral bound version, so that it can lay flat on the music stand. As it is now, I have to resort to clips, clamps, and breaking the spine of the book in order to keep it open.
very nice condition for the age of this book. !
The best way to learn how to play an instrument is certainly playing it and although it might seem obvious that is not the principle many instructional books adapt. Well, Solo Guitar Playing I is different at that point because there is very little text and a lot of music. I can say that this book covers three main principles of Classical Guitar Playing:
I love seeing Mr Noad on YouTube. I have really tried to use this book but it will not stay open for me, not even with binder clips. So I was glad when I found his old pink and yellow first edition version that cooperates in letting me see the music! I guess I will have to learn how to get and use a plastic binder thingy. Any suggestions how to do this?
