  • July 19, 2011 Outstanding

    Outstanding lesson book works best if used in conjunction with Alfred's Basic Guitar Course 1 & 2. It is a theory course that progresses with your learning of the guitar. It is also perfect for those intermediate players that want to bone up on their theory.

    If you've found your way to this review, it may be, that like me, you teach guitar to large groups of 8 to 12 year olds. You need a bit of quiet while you tune 10 cheap beginner guitars Right?This workbook gets the students thinking and writing and...

    your tuning takes a quarter of the time.When you have only half an hour for a lesson this theory book backs up the material covered in the practical book of the same name (Alfred's Basic 1 AND 2.)It takes the student thru from "beginner" to chord theory, scale theory,moving out of the first position and alternate ways of playing the same notes and phrases. Just what the Guitar Teacher ordered.
