Complete Method for Modern Guitar

All seven volumes of Mel Bay's original, internationally acclaimed Modern Guitar Method series are included in this single, deluxe master compilation. No other comparable method exists for the guitar! As Mr. Bay perceived the need for a guitar method that would effectively teach beginning guitarists to read music, this method is intentionally written in standard notation only, providing just enough music theory to understand what the student is required to play at any given point. Although fingerstyle technique can be applied to the pieces and studies, this book is specifically tailored for the plectrum-style player. Contains hundreds of beginner through advanced solos and duets in all fretboard positions and all keys, plus all four-note rhythm chord formations on high, middle and low sets of adjacent strings. This edition also includes additional outstanding plectrum guitar solo arrangements not found in the original seven volumes. All in all, this outstanding method leads the student to total mastery of the fretboard.

Guitar Class Method Volume 1

"This approach really works. It holds my student's interest." These are typical comments on the effectiveness of William Bay's Guitar Class Method. As no other instrument lends itself to so many moods and styles of music (blues, folk, rock,country, classical, flamenco, jazz, etc.), playing the guitar as a popular mode of expression and the instrument itself have become an integral part of American life. The Guitar Class Method was written with the hope it would expand the range of people of all ages who would be exposed to the guitar through a meaningful,authoritative method that is easy to follow. Online audio available for download. Volume 1 of this method for individual or group study offers an overview of the various styles of guitars and playing techniques with advice on purchasing and caring for the instrument, selecting guitar strings, and playing positions.

J  S  Bach  Six Unaccompanied Cello Suites Arranged for Guitar

Although Johann Sebastian Bach did not write any music for the guitar, transcriptions of his unaccompanied string music and music for lute have long been a part of the guitar repertoire. Despite the respect that this music commands among musicians and audiences debate still exists as to what constitutes an appropriate means of transcribing, interpreting and performing this music on the guitar. It is this debate that prompted this long-awaited edition of Bach's unaccompanied cello suites by scholar and concert guitarists Stanley Yates. This definitive work includes performance scores, comparison scores an an invaluable 40-page guide entitled Arranging, Interpreting, and Performing the Music of J.S. Bach. Furthermore, the author offers comments on his arranging process and suggestions on using this edition including: ornamentation, slurs, fingerings, notation, and implementation of the comparison scores. Written in standard notation in guitar-friendly keys.

The Guitar Workbook

Increasingly, guitar study is offered alongside band, orchestra, and chorus in school music programs. This development has drawn a new population of students into those programs but has left music educators scrambling to developing meaningful, sequential courses of study that both meet the needs of these new students and align with state, county, and national curricula. Few available guitar methods are designed with the classroom in mind, and fewer still take a holistic approach to teaching and learning the instrument. In short, teachers are left to navigate a vast array of method books that cover a variety of styles and approaches, often without the confidence and experience necessary to know 'what to teach when.' The Guitar Workbook: A Fresh Approach to Exploration and Mastery addresses the needs of these educators. Throughout the book's 20 lessons, students are encouraged to explore the ways various guitar styles and notation systems differ, as well as the ways they support and complement each other. Lessons cover myriad topics including pick-style playing, basic open position chords, finger-style technique, and power chords. Suggested 'Mastery Activities' at the end of each lesson support higher-order thinking, contextualize the skills and concepts studied, and provide a jumping off point for further exploration. Additionally, suggestions for further study point teachers and students to resources for extra practice.

The Contemporary Guitar

The Contemporary Guitar traces the extraordinary rise of the instrument in concert music over the past century. Though recognized worldwide as a popular music icon, the all-to-recent time when the guitar was looked down upon as a second-class citizen in the world of “serious” music is finally past, and it can now be found in the scores of the most important composers. The guitar’s rightful place in chamber music, orchestral music, or as a solo instrument is now without question, whether in the classic acoustic form or the more recent electric version. While the guitar has stood in the vanguard of musical experimentation, its many new techniques and notations remain a mystery for many composers and players. In The Contemporary Guitar, musician and scholar, John Schneider explains each class of technique and illustrates them with examples. Moreover, because the guitar is easily refretted, it has also become a leading instrument in the exploration of the relatively new musical language of microtonality. In this revised and enlarged edition from the original work of three decades ago, Schneider adds a broad-ranging, entirely new chapter on the instruments, notation and repertoire with insights into the interpretation of historical works through the application of accurate contemporary tunings and temperaments. The guitar’s unique timbre—its tone color—is one of the most versatile among modern instruments, both acoustic and electric. Most players who intuitively explore the subtleties of tone color will find outlined in The Contemporary Guitar the specific principles of physics that determine these subtleties which, once mastered, permit guitarists to control more completely the expressive palette of their instrument. Designated the Rational Method of Tone Production by its author, Schneider defines in great detail the timbral characteristics of acoustic and electric instruments from theoretical, physical, and musical viewpoints. Players in search of new repertoire will find an historical survey of the literature, an exhaustive list of new music, and a multitude of techniques for bringing such music to life. The Contemporary Guitar provides audio examples online for those seeking to discover new sounds and includes the notation to perform them.

New York Guitar Method Primer Book 2 Spiral Bound ISBN 159489-915-0 Perfect Bound ISBN 159489-916-9 This book provides students with an excellent foundation in theory, ear training, chord and scale comprehension on the guitar.

Contemporary Rhythms Volume Two

Contemporary Rhythms Volume Two develops your knowledge of highly syncopated rhythms written with contemporary notation. A serious musician must not only be able to recognize, read and play rhythms fluidly but be aware of alternate notation used especially in contemporary classical music but found more and more in all styles of music. This volume concentrates on sixteenth note rhythms and the rhythmic patterns often associated with that rhythmic level. Each exercise uses one pitch which allows the student to focus completely on time and rhythm. Exercises use modern innovations common to twentieth century notation, thereby familiarizing the student with the most sophisticated systems likely to be encountered in the course of a musical career. Midifiles for all exercises can be downloaded from the the muse-eek.com "Member's Area" to facilitate learning.

Building an Award Winning Guitar Program

"It was 2005, and I was sitting in a large ballroom with over a thousand other music educators in the convention center for the Music Educators National Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, when we were told that music education was in crisis. Student enrollment in music classes like band, choir, and orchestra were dropping at an alarming rate nation-wide. Music educators were going to lose their jobs if they could not figure out ways to attract students into their classrooms. The message was clear: we needed to start considering all types of alternatives such as guitar, music technology, Mariachi, blue grass, rock band, song writing, music theory, hand bells-any type of music class that would attract students and save jobs"--

Contemporary Guitar Harmony  For Advanced Guitarists Only

Advanced Level. The motivation for this book was to develop my The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales and delve into my findings about music education. This book is also intended to answer guitar players demands for my harmony lessons (this textbook price is more reasonable than a one-time private lesson fee). This book offers guitarists an effective and novel approach to contemporary guitar harmony. I have presented all possible (forty-three) four-note groupings (i.e. subsets), which may be used for tonal or meta-tonal harmonic progressions currently acceptable on the contemporary music scene. The principles in this book are not of passing theoretical interest, but an effective guide to musical life and how guitar harmony can be expanded to the fullest extent. Knowing possibilities in four-note groups and voicings systems will begin to unlock possibilities for music in the 21st century. Further possibilities live in each one of our guitars, waiting to be discovered. I would like to dedicate this book to all guitarists from the four corners of the earth, who wish to expand their expressive palette in Contemporary Guitar Harmony.

21st Century Guitar

In the 21st Century, the guitar, as both a material object and tool for artistic expression, continues to be reimagined and reinvented. From simple adaptations or modifications made by performers themselves, to custom-made instruments commissioned to fulfil specific functions, to the mass production of new lines of commercially available instruments, the extant and emergent forms of this much-loved musical instrument vary perhaps more than ever before. As guitars sporting multiple necks, a greater number of strings, and additional frets become increasingly common, so too do those with reduced registers, fewer strings, and fretless fingerboards. Furthermore, as we approach the mark of the first quarter-century, the role of technology in relation to the guitar's protean nature is proving key, from the use of external effects units to synergies with computers and AR headsets. Such wide-ranging evolutions and augmentations of the guitar reflect the advancing creative and expressive needs of the modern guitarist and offer myriad new affordances. 21st Century Guitar examines the diverse physical manifestations of the guitar across the modern performative landscape through a series of essays and interviews. Academics, performers and dual-practitioners provide significant insights into the rich array of guitar-based performance practices emerging and thriving in this century, inviting a reassessment of the guitar's identity, physicality and sound-creating possibilities.
