This set includes 5 Modern Guitar Method books, grades 1 through 5.

Modern Guitar Method Grade 1 Book

The premier plectrum guitar instruction course. Time tested and proven successful in building the technical proficiency needed to master any style of music. Written in standard notation only to improve sight-reading ability.

Modern Guitar Method Grade 2 Book

Explores more complex rhythms in carefully graded solo and duet settings with parallel lessons in music theory -- just enough to keep students up to speed in terms of what they are expected to play. Starting with a review of key of C major, Grade 2 goes on to cover playing in F major/D minor and D major/B minor. Written in standard notation only.

Modern Guitar Method Book Grade 3

This book begins with the key of A major and immediately introduces right-hand accompaniment concepts before moving on to the relative minor key of F#. Notes in the first position on the first four strings are reviewed before approaching scales, chords and etudes in keys of B-flat major/G minor, E-flat major/C minor, and A-flat major/F minor. Includes theory lessons regarding intervals, harmonized scales, triads, expression marks and syncopation plus techniques of glissando, ascending and descending slurs, and tremolo. Written in standard notation only.

Modern Guitar Method Book Grade 4

Now clearly at the intermediate level, Grade 4 begins with a tutorial on the E major scale in three octaves plus the principal chords in E major. The C# harmonic and melodic minor scales are introduced followed by a wealth of carefully arranged solo and duet study material in various keys in the fourth, fifth, seventh, and ninth position. Three basic shapes for major and minor chords are reviewed through chord studies in various keys through the seventh position. Theory lessons address identification of intervals, the dominant seventh chord, and modulation. Written in standard notation only.

Modern Guitar Method Book Grade 5

Helps you enhance your chordal and solo technique with in-depth presentations of chord forms and inversions in various keys. Beautiful solos and duets for serious students.
