I can play grade 8 pieces no problem and have been playing many years but only ever read tab. This book is clever. These simple yet deceptive tunes are not what you expect to hear, so you have to sight read, all the while learning unexpected timing and note and finger positions. Before you know it you are sight reading. If you want preety tunes, buy another book but if you want to sight read....get this one!
Only just started to use it so have only a limited opinion. From what I have experienced so far the exercises seem well graded. As a result of cardiac surgery and rehab it has been a year since I touched my guitar. I found that a lot of basic skills had become blunted. I saw this as a good time to return to basics and correct bad habits. This book allows one to pick up the skill of sight-reading and also pay more attention to finger placement. Improvements already obvious though Carnegie Hall remains remote.
I didn't feel this book was for levels I-III, for me it was really just for beginners. It looks good if you are a beginner, but I was disappointed with it and it was a waste of money for me. I will be buying a more advanced book
Not had this long, but on first sight it seems to be packed with the information that I felt I needed to know. It progresses from easy to more challenging in logical steps. Well written, clearly explained, recommended.
This is just what you need if you want to practice sight reading on the guitar. It brings you up to level three. It is well written and introduces various concepts in music as you move along. It is the first part in a two part series. This book really helped me although I still have a long way to go.
