Mel Bay’s Modern Classical Guitar Method 21548BCD is the Classical Guitar edition of the world’s leading Guitar method series. Conceived by well-known concert guitarist and teacher Stanley Yates, this carefully graduated method introduces the beginning classical guitarist to note reading, correct hand and sitting positions, practice techniques, arpeggio and scale technique, and chord and melody playing in the first position.
While this instructional DVD closely parallels the book/CD that serves as its foundation, its inherent visual nature allows the author to not only perform selections from the book, but share musical and technical concepts to an unprecedented degree. For example, ideas about tone production, including angle of attack and fingernail care, are addressed in a manner that cannot be communicated with words alone.
With the Modern Classical Guitar Method: Grade 1 book/CD and DVD in hand, you’ll have the opportunity to study with a virtuoso guitarist, almost as if you were being given a private lesson.
