Great for Learning to read notes

By J.S.

from New York, NY

Comments about Mel Bay Modern Guitar Method Grade 1 Book - Expanded Edition:

I really like that the book comes with a cd and a dvd. they are both really helpful. I already knew how to read music before I used this book, so all I was really learning was where the notes were on the guitar and how to move my hand. The book was extremely helpful and EASY TO FOLLOW!!

Great teaching tool - get a student reading in open position

By Jake

from Boston, Ma

Comments about Mel Bay Modern Guitar Method Grade 1 Book - Expanded Edition:

I am a private guitar teacher and I had been using the Leavitt series for a few years, but I'm now a convert to the Mel Bay books. This book is organized very well - it starts by showing the notes on the high E string then gives very simple example melodies using just those notes, then goes on to include the B string for a few pages, then the G string, etc, until the whole open position on the guitar is covered. I think this is more practical than the Leavitt book, which starts with a group of four notes on the G and B strings. This is much more difficult for somebody who has only been playing guitar for a few weeks! The book is almost idiot-proof in the instruction it gives. For example, whenever a new note is introduced there are several diagrams and instructions indicating how to play that note. I use this book with my students to get them reading and to get a foundation for the technique required to play melodies. I have a seperate curriculum for chord switching and strumming, and I don't work out of this book for those topics. I understand there are other brands of this style of beginning guitar book - so far I'm only familiar with Leavitt, Mel Bay, and the Fender/Hal Leanard books. Out of those three, I like the Mel Bay the best, and if you're a teacher who is teaching your students how to read notation but you do not use a book yet, I'd highly recommend this book.

Nice Book But No CD or DVD

By Chris Causby

from Boone, NC

Comments about Mel Bay Modern Guitar Method Grade 1 Book - Expanded Edition:

Accidentally ordered two of these and neither one of them came with a CD or DVD, which is the main reason I even bought it. The book does have some useful information however so it's not a total loss.
