Fun solos and ensemble pieces for young guitarists. Level: Beginner
Containing over 40 pieces, this book and CD kit offers a rich and varied mixture of folk songs from around the world ("Aura Lee" and "Sakura"), classical tunes (March of the Kings and "Minuet in G"), popular film music (themes from Pirates of the Caribbean and the Harry Potter movies), evocative originals ("Falling Leaves," "Havana Goodtime," "Samurai Sword," "Tudor Dance"), and established guitar repertoire by Sor and Carulli. Designed to consolidate areas of study covered in Guitar Basics and present new topics in the fun-but-clear style of that popular method book, Guitar Basics Repertoire introduces accidentals, moving up the neck, two-part music, arpeggios and plucked chords, as well as fun extended techniques that even a beginner can master. Guitar Basics Repertoire contains both solo and ensemble pieces, and is the perfect companion to Guitar Basics. ! By James Longworth and Nick Walker.
