Mastering the Guitar Class Method is a remarkably innovative new approach to teaching guitar in class settings. This volume begins with in-depth reviews of the keys of C, G, Am, and Em presented in Volume 1. New material includes minor 7 and major 7 chords, triplets, swing rhythm, the slide, 6/8 time, 6/8 and 12/8 strums, harmonics, suspended chords, moveable power chords, and the keys of D, F and Dm. Contains comprehensive sections on pentatonic scales, improvisation, the hammer-on and pull-off techniques, the Travis fingerpicking style, barre chords, two-part harmony, block chords, fingerpicking in 3/4 time, and fingerpicking solos. As a special feature the book includes numerous guitar ensemble pieces suitable for recital or concert performance. This new method meets current MENC national standards for music education. This volume may be used as a follow-up to either edition of Mastering the Guitar Class Method Level 1.
