  • December 06, 2012 Great book

    Entered into a classical guitar major as an average garage band guy that couldn't read a lick of music. Went through both Parkening books within the first year and was playing Bach's lute suites within 3 years. Very good method and starting point for anyone wanting to play...

    classical and read music in general.

  • May 02, 2011 Christopher Parkening Guitar - Volume 1

    I'm a public school music teacher in Utah. I'm a percussionist, not a guitar player. I've been looking for a book I can use in my guitar classes. I like this book. It's a newer edition of the one that was used in my University class...

    . This book has posibly the best pictures and illustrations of playing position I've seen in a guitar book. Very clear and instructive. The music is wonderful. There are many duets and some trios for the student to practice which is helpful in developing listening skills and tempo control. Many of the early duets are student/teacher duets. The teacher parts would take some work for me to be able to play being a percussionist, but worth the effort. I would recommend this book.

    I really like this book because it moves along quickly and the excercises are actually musically interesting. Practicing these excercises is much more fun then other books which i have tried.

  • February 24, 2008 A Solid Beginner Book

    This book is an excellent book written by a master of Classical Guitar. This book has some very nice arrangements of classical tunes, such as "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring." There are, however, some drawbacks to this method. One is the lack of technique building studies which are introduced...

    primarily in Grade 2. Another is the rather small amount of music theory. However, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn Classical Guitar correctly. It is especially helpful to people who already know how to read music, who want to learn Classic Guitar. The last review about this book is, in my opinion, overly harsh and critical. The person who wrote the review must not have known much about the method.

  • October 07, 2004 There are much better methods

    I have this method and the older Arron Shearer Methods. The Shearer Methods are much better in that they progress much smoother thanthe Parkening Books. I found with the CP book I could play the music on page 15 and not on page 16. Too much of a jump.
