The final lesson guide from Aaron Shearer, creator of one of the most trusted guitar method books of all time.

Aaron Shearer's Classic Guitar Technique is used by serious guitarists all over the world and has long been one of the definitive classic guitar methods. The Shearer Method: Classic Guitar Foundations, Shearer's final work, is the first in a series that encapsulates his lifetime experience as America's premier classic guitar pedagogue. This new work is a step-by-step curriculum based on Aaron's innovative and common sense approach that incorporates all the advantages of modern technology.

The method includes 63 DVD videos for up-close aural and visual learning, 74 new solo and duet compositions and arrangements (made exclusively for this method by Dr. Alan Hirsh), as well as works by Sor, Carcassi, Giuliani, and more. Plus, recorded tracks masterfully illustrate nuance, tone, and musicality. The book even includes Alfred's exclusive TNT software that allows you to slow down and loop tracks for careful practice.

In addition, a complete online supplement is available for teachers and students that want a deeper understanding of Shearer's work. The book does not replace Shearer's original classic. It augments and expands on it in ways not imaginable in the early '60s when the original was published. It's a must-have to complete the library of any classic or fingerstyle guitarist! The Shearer Method Classic Guitar Foundations is not just a book but a media experience.

    Comments about Alfred The Shearer Method: Classic Guitar Foundations (Book, CD & DVD):

    This is one of the best Shearer Methods to date. All of the music has been creatively written to target the technique. The text is clear, easy to understand and is well supported by videos in the accompanying DVD. The CD and TNT (Tone and Tempo software) allows you to practice all duets, listening to just the student, teacher or both parts
