Introducing a new, non-linear concept in Guitar instruction! Part of the New Age Guitar Books series Melody Playing and Music Reading Book 2 guides students through the steps of how to play single string lead Guitar for both pick and finger style. For the first time, a book is devoted to the theory behind the notes – what the Guitar does and how it does it. The advantage of this non-linear method of instruction is that a teacher can focus on the student’s main interest, gradually widening out to include the many types of music of which this versatile instrument is capable.
Dan Fox and Dick Weissman have created an exhaustive method, which includes beginning theory, double notes, time signatures, rhythm syllables (a new way of solving rhythmic problems), triplets, hammering on, pulling off, slides and grace notes, D major scale in 2nd position, 6/8 time, 3/8 time, 9/8 time, 12/8 time, 16th notes, variations on 16th notes, 16th notes with ties, 16th notes in 3/8, 6/8, 9/8 and 12/8 time. Part 2 presupposes basic music and Guitar knowledge which can be obtained from Part 1 or other sources.
