A popular and creative method for teaching guitar to young children. This approach to learning integrates, from the very beginning, chord playing with note reading. The students start with easy one finger chord forms and strum accompaniments to numerous songs. Note reading is then methodically and carefully introduced. Two subsequent volumes complete this course.
This final volume in the Modern Guitar Method begins with a review of all major and minor keys by presenting etudes in four different positions for each key. The method then presents famed Mel Bay arrangements augmented by additional solos, duets, single string etudes, music theory, advanced chord, triad and quartal harmony studies in varied positions. The new keys presented in this volume are Db, Bbm, Gb, Ebm, B and G#m. This volume includes a 2 cd recording of the etudes, solos, duets, chord, triad and quartal harmony studies found in the text.
