Our author used accessible keys for all pieces and many classical guitar techniques so that practicing – whether in class or at home – is easy and makes fun. He also introduces playing techniques from different styles such as Flamenco. All three volumes include helpful playing instructions, fingering suggestions for both hands as well as a glossary of technical terms.
