IntroductionThe method is intended for any mature learner fifteen years old or older who has not had anyprior exposure to the classical guitar. The only prerequisite that is obligatory is your desire to learn, andthe patience to understand that everything being taught in this method is important in learning how toplay the guitar. This method can be used in a class situation or for individual instruction.I’ve tried to leave out unnecessary and time consuming exercises. This method will move ratherquickly into short musical selections utilizing the free stroke. The pieces in this method are eithercomposed by the author or original classical guitar pieces that have been edited by the author. Lesson 26gives you several intermediate level guitar pieces from various time periods which are usually not in-cluded in guitar methods but would have to be purchased separately. All the music in this method waswritten for guitar and is not transcribed from other instruments.Compared to other available methods more emphasis is being put on knowledge of rhythm andmusic theory while giving you appropriate musical selections.Before each exercise or piece, practice hints will be given to facilitate the learning of the material.A tape will be supplied with the method, to enable you to tune your guitar and to check yourprogress. Do not learn the music by listening to the tape. The tape should only be used when checkingthe already learned music. If you follow these suggestions and the ones given throughout the method,you will surprised at your own progress.With Lesson 14 a reference sheet is provided to help you find notes for the free stroke pieces.Avoid writing note names and frets in the music.
