I would think you should be able to get to the 5th lesson in a month as the first 4 lessons are basically learning the notes vrederick the 1st position.
Evaluations: Noad’s " -Solo Guitar Playing" – Vol 1 – Classical Guitar
This will allow you to work from original sheet music, and you will play from musical notes, rather than fret numbers. Noad gives lots of examples dealing with most of the subject matter in the book. Julius rated it really liked it Nov 04, This has made me very happy now as the book stays open wherever one wishes.
Liz Jordan rated it liked it Apr 04, Our website is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors. Hold your left hand in front of you, palm up, and move the unflexed thumb into the middle of the palm, you will likely feel a stiffening of the the fingers.
One of the great things is the fact its an ‘anthology’ one book is equal to at least 3 method books of different writers. But then again, I have a feeling my teaching style is quite different from what Noad’s was, thus why I don’t use the book.
I can’t remember how many “learning to play CG” books I acquired before Noad, but I do know that once that book was in my possession I stopped looking and started playing.

I hope this helps in some small way, Larry McDonald. Steve McClure rated it it was amazing Jun 22, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
I don’t think the thumb position is that big of a deal, as long as it doesn’t restrict the motion of the fingers.
What are the weak points? I also find there’s a bit of lack of explanations of techniques, obviously the teacher is there to explain these things, but from the point of view of a ‘self-taught’ student, there’s too many unanswered and poorly explained examples. At least it was for me. I didn’t feel the need for any supplementary materials although I did build up a collection of scores but not because the books I also went through book 2 don’t have a fabulous collection of music in and of themselves.
The pictures in the beginning are so bad with Noad shot at an angle so you can’t clearly see how his sitting position, and the woman in the next picture certainly has a hunched right shoulder, and appears to be leaning to the left Debra rated it it was amazing Aug 29, This is why I discontinued using it about 15 years ago.
The hardest part for me was learning how to read notes, since I had only been reading from tab previously. You can see the thumb crosses the center line of the “Madrid” neck. Ffederick Lamb rated it it was amazing Jun 12, Since its first printing inFrederick Noad’s Solo Guitar Playing has been used by countless students and teachers of classical guitar.
Hagakure rated it bopk liked it Aug 08, There just always other pieces out there.
What are the strong points? However, studies like Sor or Giuliani studies or the Brouwer studies are great supplementary material for students as well. Frederuck, Parkening, Waldron, and Sagreras are more my cup of tea. Mainly focussed on electric guitar. This was nkad the Net. Brian Ralph rated it it was amazing Feb 13, After having worked through this book, I have improved my technique, my musical repertoire, my note-reading abilities and have grown to love the classical guitar so much, that I haven’t picked up the electrical guitar since.
Open Preview See a Problem? The later pieces, the ‘solo’ pieces are great, and I often substitute from THIS book rather then vise versa. Josh Katzenmeyer rated it really liked it Apr 05, Fully illustrated with diagrams, photographs, and over musical exercises and repertoire selections, this book offers thorough instruction in every phase of classical guitar playing.
Chester rated it really liked it Nov 25, Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I hope I didn’t double-post. For example, in first position, using the fourth finger to fret a D on the 2nd string or a G on the first string even though these can be easily reached with the third finger. If you have small hands like I do, it could spell the difference between a cleanly articulated note and a buzz.
NOT good for a book that is also meant to be for the self taught student. If you keep at it, you will learn it.
The only short coming of the book is something that no book can overcome- having somebody beside you that knows what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong.
But definitely a challenge worth overcoming. Sage rated it did not like it Jul 29, You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. As a further experiment, do the same and wiggle the fingers. Vrederick for telling us about the problem.
Don’t let this disencourage you though. Frank Lopez rated it it was amazing Nov 27,
