Editions Orphee presents a new edition of the Richard Pick School of Guitar method, presented in three parts; completely re-engraved and further edited to replace 497-00313. Rather than functioning as a traditional method book, the School of Guitar is a tool to be used by both student and teacher, aiming to provide both with practical material which can be to understand the complex symbology used in guitar music. Book I is an overview of the problems encountered in the pedagogy of the guitar; meant to help teachers in formulating for themselves and for their students a practical strategy in organizing the teaching activity efficiently. Books II and III are dedicated to the sharp and flat keys respectively. Each key is presented in a graduated exposition of basic scales in the first position, a cadence of the principal chords, an extended scale, the scale in triads in all possible inversions in both open and closed voicings, a similar treatment of all seventh chords on the scale, ending with a series of resolution studies.

  • July 25, 2016 Richard Pick: School of Guitar. Orphee edition

    The best Musicianship book for Guitarists, hands down. The original publication of this book was perfect. However, Orphee Editions took grave liberties with this edition and tried to "fix" things that didn't need fixing. I am told it was with Pick's blessing, but I find that claim suspect...

    . As a pedagogue with over 25 years experience, I can tell you that this book is one of the most important book any guitarist can have in their library. Simple in concept on the rudiments of music level, but difficult in execution of understanding, patience and development. What it does for one's musicianship is immeasurable. Any of my students who even make it through 3 keys see their musicianship and overall playing skyrocket. I cannot stress this enough. I didn't get to it until much after grad school. And so wish I had done it as a younger player. However, I suggest that you purchase the Mel Bay Complete Richard Pick School of Guitar edition. One comparison and you will see why. Sorry, Orphee Ed's
