Takes you beyond the beginner stuff.
This book is great for acoustic guitarists who have learned the basics in Beginning Acoustic Guitar and are ready to take the next step. Beginning with a brief review of reading standard music notation and tab, this book takes you further into 3 major areas of study: sounds, grooves, and special techniques; theory and improvisation; and alternate tunings.
You'll be introduced to a variety of styles including acoustic funk, New Orleans, gypsy swing, Celtic, bluegrass, Cajun, and more. Master the upper positions of the guitar fingerboard as you learn major scales, triads, and pentatonic scales. Greg Horne makes learning fascinating concepts easy and fun as he introduces modes and several alternate tunings. The CD offers play-along opportunities and demonstrates the examples.
