Easy Baroque Pieces for Classical Guitar is an outstanding introduction for the beginner to intermediate guitarist to the music of the Baroque period. Jerry Willard explains the intricacies of Baroque ornamentation (including trills, mordents and notes inégale in an easy-to-understand way, and performs each piece on the accompanying audio CD. Includes standard notation and tab.
I would like to have more in the introduction describing the style and techniques used. Would not recommend for absolute beginner but the pieces are relatively easy. Would recommend learning the melody first before adding ornamentation. The CD is a must for this. Anonymous
