Play The Guitar Bk 2

Product Description
This book continues the exploration of music for the guitar that began in Book One and is also suitable for any student who has just passed the beginning 
stages of learning. 

Using the classical ‘finger style’ approach, this book explores:
  • Modern American guitar styles such as blues, rock, ragtime and country and western
  • The rich heritage of European music from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods
  • Traditional folk tunes from England, Wales, America and Australia
  • Exciting rhythms from Spain, Latin America, Mexico, the West Indies, the Middle East, Africa and Japan.

The blend of solos, duets, trios, quartets and song accompaniment makes this book ideal for use in class and group learning. 
Private teachers with individual students will also find it valuable, because most of the quartets and trios are arranged to work well as duets.

Areas studied systematically include:
  • All the main guitar keys, including scales and chords
  • Notes in higher positions are introduced.

Particularly enjoyable are the sections devoted to 'special 
effects’ such as:
  • Harmonics, damping, staccato, glissando, percussion effects, ‘bent’ notes, rasgueado, syncopation, cross rhythms, ligado and tremolo
  • The study of various scales such as modal, blues, pentatonic, chromatic, Eastern and Middle Eastern opens new doors for further explorations
