PLAY GUITAR IN 10 EASY LESSONS


PLAY GUITAR IN 10 EASY LESSONS

JON BUCK    Book Number: 89951    Product format: Paperback

This comprehensive teach yourself book will give you a good grounding in the instrument if you are ready to put in the work of practising until you get things right. Starting with the anatomy of the guitar, the book goes on to the basics of playing, correct positioning of thumb and fingers of the left hand, and the right way of pressing the fret wire. A good right hand technique is essential for smooth, fluent playing, with a choice of using fingers, plectrum or a combination of both. You can now play scales in E, G and A, and there are easy major and minor chords to practise, with a further section on the distinctive sounds of major and minor sevenths. Basic music theory follows, with scales, time and key signatures. Cadences, chord progressions, chord building, arpeggios, inversions and barre chords are all there to be mastered. Pentatonic and blues scales, harmonic and melodic minor, and blues modes are basic building blocks of improvisation, together with string bending to allow fluent transition and vibrato to intensify the impact. Finger tapping can be effective in a fast solo, and on an electric guitar the tone controls can be used to create effects, especially by rock musicians. Finally the author advises you to listen to as many musical styles as you can to increase your own range and repertoire. 20 x 24cm, 160pp, softback, chord directory, colour photos, diagrams.
