This guitar method focuses on playing engaging rhythmic themes entirely on open strings. What seems at first to be a simple task quickly becomes a real challenge, requiring a high level of accuracy and an excellent sense of rhythm. While the picking hand can only play what the other hand has prepared, nothing musical will happen unless you pluck the right string. Sven Nier’s exercises and tunes offer motivating, effective training to facilitate hitting the correct string with precision, winning half the coordination battle. While the audio examples are recorded on an electric instrument, guitar teachers and beginning students in all styles will appreciate this innovative book. Includes access to outstanding play-along online audio with and without the solo part.
