LagrimaAdelita and Romance remain in my repertoire. The book is almost an all in one book, but at the same time so much material is introduced way too quickly. If they are working with a teacher or not, there is certainly a great amount of material in that book, and would be a great book if it weren’t for the major faults I find in the sequence and lack of explanations.

Don Sansone rated it really liked it May 01, You might need to keep the thumb behind the second finger as well, which is contrary to current pedagogical thought see Joseph Urshalmi, “A Concious Approach to Guitar Technique”, Mel Bay, Classical Guitar Skip to content.

The only short coming of the book is something that no book can overcome- having somebody beside you that knows what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong.

I will concede I am autodidactic and the CG guitra not my only self taught undertaking, so in that sense, I’d say I am somewhat of an expert on self help material. While the edits aren’t bad, there is no explanation of what and why he edited certain things, like the idea of strummed chords in all the Baroque guitar pieces. Brian Ralph rated it it was amazing Feb gultar, You’ll notice that when you do this, your left hand will rotate slightly so that the palm is more perpendicular to the neck and the edge of the hand by the fourth finger draws closer to the fingerboard as well.

The later pieces, the ‘solo’ pieces are great, and I often substitute from THIS book nowd then vise versa.

Thank you Geo for starting this thread. Noad takes the reader from knowing absolutely nothing about the guitar to playing short but complete pieces. An edition with accompanying CD came out later, but with internet videos, that’s obsolete.

It makes the very short list with Parkenings book. View our privacy policy.
