OVERVIEW

A guide to educate entry level guitarists on classic methods and modern concepts of the guitar.

This revolutionary new method combines solid pedagogy with a focus on real-world guitar skills such as strumming and fingerpicking, pivotal rock and blues riffs, improvising, reading music, and music theory. The included MP3 recordings demonstrate every example and song in the book, and specialized instructional tracks feature concise explanations and demonstrations of all new concepts and techniques. The included SI Player software lets students slow tracks down and loop sections for continuous practice, and video lessons on the included DVD explain and demonstrate all the concepts and techniques.

    Comments about Alfred Sound Innovations for Guitar Book, DVD & MP3 Recordings:

    I found this series to be the best I have come across in years. It is designed to promote early success so that the student feels that spirt of I can do this right out of the gate. It covers all the bases. Note reading, aligned with tabs, and chords. It's a great beginning guitar series.

      Comments about Alfred Sound Innovations for Guitar Book, DVD & MP3 Recordings:

      Being a big fan of Aaron Stang, I am, unfortunately, very disappointed in this book/DVD. The biggest gripe that I have is that there are just too few examples to practice. Something new is introduced, you practice it once (twice if you are lucky) and then you move on to the next new thing. I realize that more examples mean more pages in the book but without sufficient examples the material is not really mastered. Another thing that I disliked was that they were inconsistent with the tabbing out of the melodies. In some cases, the melodies were in both standard notation and in tab but in other pieces, the tab of the melodies was omitted to make room for the rhythm (slash) notation. To make it more consistent and easier to follow, they should have included the standard notation, melody tab, and the slash notation. Again, this was done to save paper but it really detracts from the usability of the book. Another major problem is that this book is billed as Book 1 but there is no book 2 or 3 like in other methods so you are left hanging as to where to go from there. I even emailed the authors about availability of a second or third book but never received a response. I was truly disappointed.
