Traditionally, learning to read the sheet music is hard, and perfecting your technique takes lots of practice.
To fast-track your learning to the point when you can easily play complex melodies quickly, this book is more than just a book. It is an entire course comprising:
- Music scores
- High-quality studio-made audio files, and
- High-definition videos demonstrating the pieces and the techniques at normal speed and step-by-step.
What binds it together is the FAME (Fast Acoustic-guitar Mastery by Example) method for the rapid guitar mastery, developed by Dr Alex Davidovic and Professor Milan Mitic. The FAME method works in classroom situations with a teacher, or in one-on-one training with an instructor, or when you learn on your own. In any case, it makes it possible to play the great tunes that students typically learn after 2 or 3 years of music school in a matter of weeks. It truly is the closest you'll ever come to a 'magic bullet'.
FAME is a simple, straightforward and highly efficient 4-step method:
Listen to the studio recording and visualize playing it.
Watch the video while skimming over the sheet music, the left hand and the right hand technique.
Watch the step-by-step slow-motion part of the video with the sheet music in front of you, and learn the whole song, bit by bit, and
Practice until it's perfect!
