Assuming readers have no prior knowledge, this book offers a clear, easy-to-understand method for learning to play the classical guitar. It presents over 200 exercises composed by the author that clarify particular techniques and musical concepts, as well as transcriptions of essential classical guitar repertoire. Fully illustrated with diagrams and charts, the book covers reading music notation, theory, key signatures, musical terms, memorisation, chords, arpeggios, melody, advanced techniques, playing by ear, ornaments, general musicianship, and improvisation. Designed to help readers become self-sufficient in all aspects of playing, this guide also provides a solid foundation for further technical and musical development. Accomplished guitarists in other styles, including those who do not read music, will find much to enhance their technique and musicianship. Play Classical Guitar honours the instrument's distinguished heritage with a 48-page colour showcase of the finest models, players and composers, and includes an historical overview of the instrument, purchasing advice, and more.Biografía del autor:
