Ordered this and upgraded my guitar as well.

Once you buy this book, the next best thing you can do is to make it coil bound by giving it to some place like FedEx. The book is a great place to start sight reading.

guitae I went back to the basics and have been progressing. I also remember my guitar teacher using some of the exercises duets included from volime book when I first learnt classical guitar. Overall, I love this book and can’t wait to progress and move on to volume 2. I use this method series for a few of my piano students who already have a few years of keyboard experience, and it guitad quite well because they don’t have to deal with the music fundamentals, like notes recognitions, rhythms, and the inherent counterpoints found on the printed scores, and can concentrate on the fast-paced learning materials.


Having said that, I wouldn’t recommend this book to real young guitar beginners or beginners who have received no previous instructions on any instrument. I also recommend the version that has an accompanying CD because it gives the students an opportunity to hear what the end product should sound and a chance to play along with a seasoned musician.

Guitar Technique” as the text for his beginning guitar students. While my teacher doesn’t always agree with Mr. Parkening on guitaf of technique he told me, “Ignore these pages on hand positioning; do it the way I showed you. As a person of ahem a certain age, I honestly doubted that I could voluje to sight read. However, after only a few weeks of working with my teacher using Mr.

Parkening’s incremental method, I can now easily read and find on the fretboard a number of notes — each week we add three to six more. I believe that as we keep chipping away at it I’ll achieve my dream of being able to sight read and play increasingly difficult classical pieces on the guitar. I find the duets very inspiring — when I play my easy part along with my teacher he gets the harder part it gives me some perspective on where I’m headed and a delicious taste of what’s possible.

Having these duets parrkening a lovely inducement to work hard enough to play the next one, and the next — a carrot dangling before me to tempt me through the occasional sticky repetitive, difficult practice session. I think this book would be difficult to use without a teacher. There is so much material that I’m getting from my teacher directly — volums position, how to hold the guitar, important nuances of hand and finger positioning which he gently corrects throughout the lesson, learning how to mark up and learn pieces, how to read ahead and place my fingers ahead for the metyod note setc.

He helps me shape my nails properly, which is vitally important for a good tone! Personally, I guuitar not rely on this book or any other book in the absence parkehing a good and patient teacher.

When we begin guitar or any other instrumentthat is the time when we establish our foundation.

It’s very difficult to unlearn bad habits once they’re formed. I found the version with the Mehhod and it is very helpful. Four years after beginning my guitar studies with this book, my sight-reading and playing have grown by leaps and bounds.

I can’t begin to express how thrilled I was when I was able to read and play the final work in this book, a beginner-intermediate arrangement of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J. Parkening for a VERY helpful method book — and thanks to my teacher for skillfully guiding me through the early stages of classical guitar studies using Mr. Decades ago, I studied classical guitar pretty seriously, but when I picked up the instrument again my teacher recommended this beginner book to re-lay the guita of my technique.

I found it very high-quality and was delighted to recapture pretty quickly a lot of what I missed for so many years. I haven’t played guitar in many years, so starting up again, I wanted to do some basics on my own before starting official lessons with an instructor. I have to say that this is one of the best method books I’ve ever seen and it’s written by one of my favorite guitarists! If you’re looking to get started on Classical guitar and do it correctly, I don’t think you could find a better book.


Once I start with an instructor, I’ll probably ask to use this book. It’s layed out in a well thought out manner with really good technique patkening. This first book takes you all the way through the “first position” on the guitar, and the next book takes you all the way up the neck. You can’t go wrong. I’m really liking this instructive book.

Of course, it helps to have an instructor to go along with this. My instructor views this book as quite invaluable for a guitarist. The way the book is bound, it is hard to keep the pages open without something to hold them down. Also, it seems to me, the book cover really needs to be updated. The picture is probably years old.

Have Christopher Parkening take a current picture. This method book is excellent if you are starting from the ground up with little no background at all. Covers all the basics like posture to nail cure to reading notes in the first position in the first 4 frets. It will gradually guide you to playing the notes on volums string in the first position.

If you master each section then move on to the next, you should be able methhod have a decent ability in sightreading in the first position. What I understand is that volume 2 will help you to read and play higher up the neck. One person found this helpful. See all reviews.
