Modern Guitar Method Grade 1

Modern Guitar Method Grade 1 composed by Mel Bay and William Bay. For Guitar (All). Saddle-stitched, Methods. Modern Guitar Method. All Styles. Beginning. Book/CD Set. 48 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.93200BCD).

ISBN 9780786627844. All Styles. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

The world's premier method for learning modern plectrum style guitar, time-tested and proven successful in building the theoretic and technical foundation needed to play in any style. All seven grades of this method are written in standard notation only to encourage better sight reading. In Grade 1, the student guitarist will learn to play solos, duets, scales, and chords in the keys of C, A minor, G and E minor. Even in Grade 1, the student is already exposed to the chord/melody concept of guitar performance. The companion recordings feature Tommy Flint and William Bay playing in split-track format, with the solo parts performed on the right channel, and the accompaniment or second duet parts played on the left. The student can play along with the full recording, or tune out either channel and play the missing part.
