Solo Guitar Playing, Book 1: A Complete Course of Instruction in the Techniques of Guitar Performance [With CD (Audio)]
Solo Guitar Playing, Book 1: A Complete Course of Instruction in the Techniques of Guitar Performance [With CD (Audio)]
by Frederick M. Noad
Edition: Paperback
Price: 16.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 19 Jun 2014
Where this book really fails is in the fact that the book contains brilliant exercises but they are not on the CD!.

This is extremely annoying, so to sum up, if you are a beginner then you need to get yourself a teacher alongside this book.
To anyone who reads this beware, just because the tutor book says CD does not mean its got everything from the book.
If you want a book that contains all the exercises and studies on CD then have a look at Progressive Classical Guitar: CD Pack by Jason Waldron. This is totally self contained and it amazing!

However the book provides very useful tips on creating good habits and practice. Amazing in many ways!
If you can find yourself a good teacher then this book with take you very far.
Its a real pity it does not have samples of the excercises on the CD.
I hope Mr Noad will reconsider, becaise I cannot afford a teacher so anything on the CD is like a teacher to me.

This book is highly recommended fro the beginner, the cd is very useful. I extracted the exercises and studies from the cd and kept them as wav files so that they are easier to access on my pc.
Amazing book!

I dont know who this guy is, I heard him on Youtube and I had to buy the cd.
His music permeates your mind and takes you to another place.
Just amazing!

If you like Jazz guitar with a hint of blues then this CD is a must.
Buying ths Cd was such a pleasant surprise as I did not quite know what it would contain.
But safe to say Kenny Burrel is a true genius.
Listen to this CD.... youre gonna to love it!

Do yourself a favour.
Sit on your favourite chair with a large Scotch on the rocks, tell everyone around you to clear off so you can slip into a world of rhythm and melody.
The whole experience will make you feel glad for being alive.
My 15 year old listened to this and he was gently swaying and he didnt even know it.
Kenny Burrell you are an absolute gem!!

What a pleasant surprise.
I love every track. Its relaxing, it gently swings, it carresses!
Imagine a balmy summer's evening, Put this CD on, a large scotch on the rocks, a fat cigar and the rest of you can go hang!

If the Samba rhythm does'nt infect you.... then you must be dead!

Buy it before they discontinue it!

There is a certain something about this lady's voice, its soft, its rhythmic, its melodic, its sexy. Just wonderful.
There are some very poignant lyrics on this CD. Listen to the track <A certain Sadness> The words cut through your emotions!
Beautiful music!

I really like Milos and I like his style of playing. He's the new John Williams.
This cd has some very interesting tracks like track 12 ... just wonderful.

I LOVE THIS CD and wish Milos well for the future.
I hope he comes out with another CD. I have both his cds now.

BRILLIANT GUITARIST!
