Mastering the Classical Guitar Book 2B is the fourth book in a carefully graduated method series that uses a broad spectrum of technical exercises, music theory, chord studies, and repertoire to provide a solid technical foundation for the beginning to advanced-intermediate classical guitar student.

This book is appropriate for students who have completed Books 1A, 1B and 2A and can read standard notation in the first and second positions. The book is written in three sections: Progressive Studies and Pieces, Technical Exercises, and Chords and Chord Progressions. Tips on how to integrate the three sections are given throughout the book.

Mastering the Classical Guitar Book 2B introduces: notes on the second string, ascending and descending slurs, ornamentation, polyphony, and playing in the third and fifth positions. The book’s chord studies venture into new territory of seventh chords and jazz chord progressions.

Teachers will welcome the generous number of attractive intermediate-level recital pieces by Aguado, Carulli, Carcassi, Coste, Giuliani, Mertz, Sor, and Tárrega. Written in standard notation only. Includes access to online audio.
