Bruce Buckingham - Guitar Basics
Bruce Buckingham Guitar Basics PDF. Private Lessons Series. (Musicians Institute Press). Essential chords, scales, rhythms and theory for acoustic and electric guitar. This pack gives essential instruction on open chords, barre chords, power chords, strumming; scales, rhythm playing, the blues, and moveable chord shapes. It includes inversions, 'color' chords, practice tips, chord charts, songs, and progressions, along with access to online audio tracks.
The work starts off as basic as possible, and progresses at a logical rate. This also means that a beginner can't sit down and zip through many pages of easy stuff and master a lot that is worthwhile. The author expects the student to take weeks to practice the fundamentals, and if the student does, it is a real achievement. The level of difficulty is appropriate if one strictly follows the author's lead. If the student takes this to heart and applies the effort, it is worth it.
If you are a beginner and have failed with many other books, this is the last book your should need. With this book you can work on your own or find an instructor to get you going. Bruce doesn't teach you how to play songs, he teaches you rhythm patterns and strive to groove your rhythm.
