Learn how to play the guitar and open up a brand new world of musical knowledge with this exciting method from Alfred Music, the world leader in educational music publishing since 1922. Beginners of all ages can start their journey to a lifetime of playing either acoustic or electric guitar in a variety of musical styles, including Rock, Heavy Metal, Blues, Country, Jazz and Folk with this course.
Volume 3 continues where volume 2 leaves off, advancing through more musical concepts and songs, more advanced chords and scales, dotted notes, key signatures, and more, lesson by lesson, all while continuing to increase your knowledge of reading and understanding standard musical notation and TAB. Advanced TAB techniques, including bends and releases, hammer-on’s and pull-off’s, slides, and palm mutes, are also introduced.
Audio examples and video lessons are integrated throughout the entire book so you can see and hear an experienced guitar teacher guiding you through every step. Split-screen video lessons clearly show the left and right hands and on-screen music notation and TAB is highlighted as the music plays so you can easily follow along. Interactive quiz questions help students grasp concepts and make learning fun. If you’ve wanted to learn how to play the guitar but didn’t know where to start, this is the perfect course for you!
