Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

These stylistic supplements to Hal Leonard's successful, longrunning "Guitar Method" series follow the same basic outline: choosing an instrument, playing techniques (with songs to practice), and more comprehensive instruction on style. Acoustic Guitar is necessarily more general, providing an overview of blues and country styles, while Blues Guitar goes into some detail on genrespecific techniques, such as string bending and slide as well as phrasing. Both titles assume a little prior experience with the guitar; beginning adult and adolescent players will be able to jump right in. The "Guitar Method" volume Fingerstyle(ISBN 9780634099953)
