Want to be a classical guitarist but never had a lesson?

Want to be a classical guitarist, but never had a lesson? No problem — this hands-on guide teaches you all the fundamental techniques you need to play scales, melodies, and full-length pieces in the classical style. You get plenty of practice exercises to stretch your skills, selections from the classical repertoire, and a bonus audio CD that helps you play along with the music pieces from the book!

  • Start making some music — play melodies on individual strings, move on to arpeggios, and get your fingers in shape with scales

  • Ramp up your technique — play barres, slurs, and trills; handle harmonics; master right-hand tremolo; and venture up the neck to play in the higher positions

  • Build your classical repertoire — from Renaissance and Baroque to Classical, Romantic, and Modern, play pieces from the major eras in classical music

  • Practice makes perfect — improve your performance with expert guidance through each exercise and piece in the book
