pdf epub fb2 djvu



The ultimate guide for all guitar enthusiasts - from beginners to seasoned musicians - wanting to build up right-hand ability to play a wide range of musical styles from bluegrass, country, latin and bossa nova to rock, folk, jazz and blues. Building on alternating bass techniques, thumb patterns and special fretting techniques, the book contains a series of graded exercises (backed up with a CD) that will build confidence and speed. While fingerstyle guitar is primarily thought of as a technique for acoustic guitar, it sounds just as cool on electric guitar. With this in mind, all chapters contain material that sounds equally good on either type of guitar. Fingerpicking Techniques for Guitar also offers a tour of musical genres, showing how even guitar players at beginner level can use these techniques to unlock the secrets of some of the most iconic sounds in the guitar repertoire. About the author Phil Capone studied guitar at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music in London. He teaches at the Guitar Institute in Wapping and the King Alfred School in Hampstead, and is a regular contributor to Total Guitar magazine. Phil frequently performs on the London jazz circuit and enjoys a popular residency with his own quintet. He is the author of Apple's bestselling 501 Guitar Chords and Learn to Play the Guitar.
