Children's Literature - Jillian Hurst
Learn how to strum a guitar with this edition of the "How to Improve at Playing" series! This how-to guide provides a detailed description of the parts of the guitar, including the bridge and the soundboard. It also instructs about tuning, strumming and picking. We can also learn finger placements for each chord from the photos provided. The book explains the importance of practice, and provides scales and exercises for learning techniques such as fingerpicking and staccato. The final chapter wraps up a new interest in guitar by detailing significant players in history such as Muddy Waters and Jimi Hendrix. Students can use the instruction and information provided here to begin home lessons or to learn more about the guitar before beginning paid lessons. The simple text and instructive images will capture the interest of an eager young student. Check the glossary in the back for key terms in learning the guitar. The educational element of the "How to Improve" series serves well for learning in or out of the classroom! Reviewer: Jillian Hurst
