This book introduces the rest of the notes on the fretboard beyond the first position. It introduces more notes and more difficult studies at a pace that is gradual enough that it does not become frustrating. The pieces towards the end of the book are divided into sections according to the period in which they are composed and Chistopher Parkening gives great advice into the playing techniques and interpretation of each piece. I only wish there was a third volume. The only problem I have is that there is a huge jump in difficulty from the end of this method to the virtuostic pieces that most guitarists want to learn. Though that seems to be the same with most methods in my opinion. Also, it does not have modern guitar pieces because of copyright laws.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
