Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ultimate guide for all acoustic guitar enthusiasts--from beginners to seasoned musicians--wanting to build up the ability to play a wide range of musical styles. Building on alternating bass techniques, thumb patterns, and special fretting techniques, The Fingerpicking Technique Bible for Guitar contains a series of graded exercises (demo CD included) that will build confidence and speed.

This hardcover bible with internal wire-o binding is 6.5in x 8in, a perfect size for readers to keep handy. The binding allows it to lie open flat for easy reference during practice. The stylish design of the book, along with the interior photographs, illustrations and diagrams, make the learning process simple and fun for beginners and enthusiasts. The book also includes an audio CD for examples and accompaniment.

This book also offers a tour of musical genres, showing how even guitar players at beginner level can use these techniques to unlock the secrets of some of the most iconic sounds in the guitar repertoire. Also, exercises are shown in standard notation and tablature, along with selective use of photographs to add clarity where required.
