Here comes a book with really fresh ideas just at the right time.The two authors John Kember and Martin Beech are profound experts on guitar didactic problems. They present a compendium of pieces arranged in progressive order that is without equal. Due to the guitar's specific fingering, sight-reading is, by tradition, a real pain for all generations of guitar players. By cleverly splitting the learning steps, the two authors have succeeded in creating a consistent and practical concept of easy to medium difficulty.Most important approach: all pieces without fingerings!In combination with a textbook and selected accompanying literature, teachers and pupils will certainly greatly enjoy the exercises and pieces.This book will turn a budding guitarist into a mature musician!(Dieter Kreidler).

    I teach young children with the Suzuki Method and for many years I have tried to find a book that allowed them to have fun while learning notes and this book definitely works! It progresses very well, it has very nice accompaniments and the students feel a great sense of...

    accomplishment playing the pieces in the book. They come to their lessons very excited and want to show me how well they are reading. Finally, a sight-reading book that proves enjoyable to students and gets them reading very quickly!!
