Starting Guitar is a successful and enjoyable introduction to playing the guitar. It has been designed specifically with children in mind: the book and CD are packed with pop, folk, rock and classical pieces that are all easy to approach and yet great fun to play. It is the number one method for young guitarists and is much like having your own music teacher! Simply listen to the CD, practice the pieces from the book, and then play along with the backing tracks. You will soon become proficient at reading notation, tablature, chord diagrams and a host of other musical symbols. A number of example and repertoire pieces have been included to help learning and these begin with basic single-line melodies and progress to full chords and strumming patterns. This method is packed full with tips, helpful diagrams, summary checklists, re-caps and loads of useful advice so you'll be playing the guitar in no time!Scharfglass, Matt is the author of 'Starting Guitar The Number One Method for Young Guitarists' with ISBN 9780711967502 and ISBN 0711967504.
