  • Image 1 of Mastering the Classical Guitar - Book 1B - SKU# 02-30684M : Product Type Media : Elderly Instruments
    Book with online audio. The second book in a progressive series using a variety of musical repertoire and educational materials to provide a solid technical foundation for classical guitar students. Book 1B focuses largely on scale, interval and chord construction and how this knowledge is useful in becoming a better sight reader.

    This book is most appropriate for students who can already read standard notation in first position and are ready to attempt second position. Written in four broad sections, Progressive Studies and Pieces, Technical Exercises, Chords and Chord Progressions and Rhythmic Reading, Book 1B presents numerous playing, chord progression and clapping exercises along with 40 mostly 19th-century pieces by Aguado, Carcassi, Carulli, Sor and others. Tips on how to integrate the four sections are given throughout the book.

    Teachers will also applaud the generous number of attractive, easy-to-intermediate recital pieces in the book. Fingering is kept to a minimum to encourage students and teachers to pencil-in their own, leading to greater understanding and retention. Notation only. 72 pp.
