Velocity Etudes by William Bay. Perfect binding. Intermediate. Book. 86 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.WBM11).
ISBN 9780985922788. 8.5 x 11 inches.
Velocity Etudes is a collection of 43 original compositions designed to enhance important elements of classic guitar technique. I have always felt that as important as scale and technique drills are, they can by themselves be very tedious to practice. In addition, technique has relevance only in the context of the entire musical composition it is intended to enhance. So I like to present technique as part of a musical composition. These etudes were composed with this thought in mind. The compositions can be used merely as technical studies but they also may be used as short concert or recital pieces. Several of them may be grouped to present a kind of suite. I hope you enjoy playing these etudes. The guitar has so many moods and colors. Good technique enables the guitarist to bring out the breadth and subtlety of expression possible with this instrument. I have tried to present a variety of moods, rhythms and textures in these compositions and have presented a workable assortment of keys, both major and minor.
