Author and composer Kris Lennox feels strongly about the etudes included in this collection of solo Guitar sheet music, and this is evident in his extensive written introductions, justifications and guidance notes for each study. He has noticed that the majority of electric guitarists can play the rhythm or lead parts of songs, while the electric Guitar is rarely thought of as its own solo instrument. With Etudes For Electric Guitar, Lennox hopes to change this, composing pieces that sound great, while also being technically challenging and entirely worthy of your time. You won't need any special equipment, just a standard electric Guitar and a willingness to learn and improve. The extensive notes give you essential tips on working through each study, making sure they are as beneficial as possible.
Featuring twelve etudes, all in different keys, the notes are included in standard notation and tablature, so you don't have to know how to read music. There are also some fingering suggestions, so for particular stretches or complex passages, you can get help on where to put your fingers! The accompanying download card also gives you instant online access to studio-quality demonstrations, recorded by Kris Lennox himself, so you can hear exactly how each etude should sound. If you're feeling brave enough, you could attempt to play along with Lennox's recording, but be sure to start slowly!
This collection of Etudes For Electric Guitar is a fantastic opportunity to play a set of twelve expertly-composed studies for solo Electric Guitar, the likes of which are difficult to find among today's PVG or tab songbooks. To improve your playing, or just to expand your repertoire beyond simple songs, Etudes For Electric Guitar by Kris Lennox is a creative collection of pieces that are both enjoyable to play and invaluable to your technique.
