John Longworth & Nick Walker's "Guitar Basics" is a landmark method for young guitarists. It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to Initial/Preparatory Grade. The method is set out in fifteen stages and contains original pieces & traditional tunes in styles including classical, folk & world music as well as well-known favourite film and TV themes (James Bond & The Flintstones). There is a thorough introduction to standard notation, with sections on chords and TAB, whilst ensemble pieces are ideal for group teaching. The enhanced CD provides accompaniment parts, teachers’ notes and tips for parents which are easily downloaded, or it can be simply used to play the fun backing tracks!
