Guitar students transitioning from sight-reading and technical basics to a standard repertoire by classical composers is a significant step. This collection of musical gems eases this transition. These pieces have been carefully selected from the standard classical guitar repertoire that has been played and loved by generations throughout the centuries. This second volume helps students make that transition by building upon the same principles in our first volume – a systematic approach that takes students from a single melodic line to more complex textures by familiarizing them with new notes and their positions through each new piece. Fingering numbers are provided to make this process easier and serve to guide intermediate players through challenging passages.
Whether you are a student of the guitar or a guitar instructor, this collection can help you tackle challenging issues faced by guitarists who want to move on to the standard classical repertoire but are not yet ready for advanced study. These pieces will challenge students and familiarize them with classical guitar music, but not overwhelm them with difficulty. The collection is a must-have for beginner-advanced level students and for guitar instructors looking to help meet their students’ needs at this crucial transition to more complex pieces. For more information, see the foreword.
If you are a beginner, we strongly recommend that you consider starting with the initial volume, Discovering Six Strings: A Beginner’s Guide to Mastering Technical Basics and Sight Reading through Folk Music from Around the World, before purchasing this book.
