BTW, this is a big Ramirezso you can see I have big hands and I still use the 4th finger approach. My biggest complaint is that it uses the left-hand 3rd finger approach instead of the 4th finger approach as established by Sor.

The book is almost an all in one book, but at the same time so much material is introduced way too quickly. I can’t remember how many “learning to play CG” books I acquired before Noad, but I do know that once that book was in my possession I stopped looking and started playing.

I also find there’s a bit of lack of explanations of techniques, obviously buitar teacher is there to explain these things, but from the point of view of a ‘self-taught’ student, there’s too many unanswered and poorly explained examples.

Hagakure rated it really liked it Aug 08, From that perspective I can honestly say the Noad books represent the best teach-your-self material, in any field, I’ve come across.

NOT good for a book that is also meant to be for the plsying taught student. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Paperbackpages. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Trivia About Solo Frederjck Playi Solo Guitar Playing can teach even the person with no previous musical training how to progress from simple single-line melodies to mastery of the guitar as a solo instrument.

For me the book was perfect, but for absolute beginners it may be a rather steep learning curve For example, in first position, using the fourth finger to fret freedrick D on the 2nd string or a G on the first string even though these can be easily reached with the third finger.

It took me about 6 months to work through. No trivia or quizzes yet.

In particular, I think it would be helpful to include: An edition with accompanying CD came out later, but with internet videos, that’s obsolete. Julius rated it really liked it Nov 04, Techniques like scale development in both rest and free stroke technique and arpeggio technique aren’t the best explanations. But definitely a challenge worth overcoming. Express yourself through the beautiful voice of the solo guitar.

This book is a challenge. It seems my earlier one never made it to the forum. Basic technique; Reading music, memorizing, and playying Mastering the fingerboard; Building dexterity and speed; Developing tone color and musical phrasing; Position playing; Interpretation; and more.

Duncan, Parkening, Waldron, and Sagreras are more my cup of tea. Frank Lopez rated it it was amazing Nov 27, Thanks for telling us about the problem. If you still want to use the “old” third finger approach, do what Ramsnake says and keep a gap between the 1st and second fingers. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Ron rated it it was amazing Jul 04, This has the advantage of increasing the span of frets you can handle.


What are the weak points? He talks about strokes with the fingers both so,o and free, and with the thumb all in one section, rather then sequentially introducing these techniques as the hand becomes more stabilized. The hardest part for me was This book is a challenge. It makes the very short list with Parkenings book. There just always other pieces out there. This is why I discontinued using it about 15 years ago.

Classical Guitar Skip to content. Don Sansone rated it really liked it May 01, For years, the most popular classical guitar method ever published!

If you have small hands like I do, it could spell the difference between a cleanly articulated note and a buzz.

I didn’t feel the need for any supplementary materials although I did build up a collection of scores but not because the books I also went through book 2 don’t have a fabulous collection of music in and of themselves.
