The classic instruction manual for the beginner including chapters on Tablature, Basic Right- and Left-Hand techniques, Alternating Bass, Arpeggios, Bass Runs, Transposition, and much more. Here are over 45 songs complete with melody, chords, and accompaniment.
Basic information and direction as to chords and various techniques of playing. Extensive folk song material upon which to practice and develop these techniques.
The intention here is to go into much greater detail and to proceed much more slowly with the crucial first stages of study so that the student may emerge from his first few months with the guitar with a solid foundation of basic techniques.
