Easy guitar lessons to learn the emotive and dynamic music of Italy.
Guitar Atlas: Italy brings you the lively rhythms and emotional melodies of Italian music. The rich tradition of Italian music has been underrepresented in the "world music" genre-until now. Learn the history, cultural influences, and instruments of each area of Italy.
While some of the songs featured in Guitar Atlas: Italy were originally performed on instruments such as flute, mandolin, or bagpipes, here they appear as Italian guitar arrangements for the first time.
To help guitarists pick up all the nuances of style, Guitar Atlas: Italy covers both fingerstyle and pick playing, and explores special techniques such as grace notes, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and tremolo.
The Italian-style guitar music is both in standard notation and guitar tab. A CD demonstrating the book's examples and compositions is included.
