A Modern Method for Guitar, Volume 1

by William Leavitt
available from Amazon.com

front cover

A practical and comprehensive guitar method designed for the serious guitar student and used as the basic text for the Berklee College of Music guitar program. Volume 1 teaches beginning guitar students all the music fundamentals including scales, melodic studies, chord and arpeggio studies, special exercises for both hands, accompaniment techniques, and a unique approach to voice leading using movable chord forms. The "play-along" audio CD features solos, selected studies, duets, and trios. It's the next best thing to having a private instructor coach you through the lessons.

BUZZ

"These books will always feature in my "all time best" list. All three books should be in every guitarist's bookshelf - in my case they became a musical bible that I will surely use my whole life. To me this is the best overall guitar method I have come across."
