This manual is designed for beginners who want to learn classic guitar style and technique the right way, as well as for guitarists already familiar with a few technical concepts who want to broaden their knowledge. Includes a 'crash-course' on Ben Bolt's approach to the guitar with many of his best original didactic compositions and arrangements plus detailed photographs illustrating sitting position, string attack, and more. Features a private photo essay lesson with Professor Bolt, humorous stereotypical portraits of teachers you might encounter, thoughts on tools of the trade, how to tune and change strings, and a wealth of technical information. Includes scale patterns and position studies, numerous transcriptions, arrangements of Christmas carols, and both time-tested and original studies- all written in standard notation only. The companion audio includes all of the music in the book recorded in order of appearance.

As Ben Bolt studied with both Andres Segovia and Abel Carlevaro, you can rest assured that this book will set you on the straight and narrow path to authoritative classic guitar technique.
