This manual is designed for beginners who want to learn classic guitar style and technique the right way, as well as for guitarists already familiar with a few technical concepts who want to broaden their knowledge. Includes a ?crash-course? on Ben Bolt's approach to the guitar with many of his best original didactic compositions and arrangements plus detailed photographs illustrating sitting position, string attack, and more. Features a private photo essay lesson with Professor Bolt, humorous stereotypical portraits of teachers you might encounter, thoughts on tools of the trade, how to tune and change strings, and a wealth of technical information. Includes scale patterns and position studies, numerous transcriptions, arrangements of Christmas carols, and both time-tested and original studies- all written in standard notation only. The companion CD includes all of the music in the book recorded in order of appearance.
