John W. Duarte: Guitar Fingerboard Teacher Primer

Books | Guitar

Catalogue No: NOV630156
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
It is ironic that the creator of this uncompromising book for Guitarists was himself almost entirely self-taught. Duarte originally earned a degree in chemistry and worked as an industrial chemist for year before abandoning that life to devote himself to music. His life as a Guitarist, composer, teacher and writer was long and fulfilling. He composed 150 works, mainly for Guitar, ranging widely over many styles, including various national styles. It is typical of Duarte’s style that the Table of Contents has been renamed the Plan of Campaign. It is also typical of his vivacious style that, in the Foreword, he says, ‘The fingerboard is shown in interlinking areas that may be learned separately – divide and rule!’
