Customer Rating:   1 Review Write a Review


Classic Guitar for the Young Beginner composed by William Bay. For Guitar (Classical). Wire bound, Methods. Young Beginner. Children. Beginning. Book/CD Set. 48 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20307BCD).

ISBN 9780786668809. Children. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

Without a hint of condescension, this book/CD offers the young classic guitarist a thorough grounding in reading standard notation in first position. This book was written in the Mel Bay tradition of providing only enough music theory to understand what is required of the student at any given point in the book. Numerous studies and folksong melodies are presented with suggested chord changes for accompaniment by a teacher or a second student guitarist. Includes guides to purchasing a classic guitar, proper posture and hand positions, tuning the guitar, and much more. A companion CD is included. Written in standard notation only.

    This book is good for learning to read music with the guitar. The accompanying CD is useful for getting an idea of the tune and timing.
