Guitar Basics is a landmark method for young guitarists. It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to Initial/Preparatory Grade. The method is set out in sixteen stages and contains original pieces and traditional tunes in an array of styles including classical, folk and world music as well as well-known favourite film and TV themes such as James Bond, Batman and The Flintstones.

There is a thorough introduction to standard notation, with sections on chords and TAB, whilst ensemble pieces are ideal for group teaching, including ‘Wider Opportunities’. The enhanced CD provides accompaniment parts, teachers’ notes and tips for parents which are easily downloaded, or it can be simply used to play the fun backing tracks!

The companion book, Guitar Basics Repertoire, provides over 40 fun solos and ensemble pieces for both individual and group learning. It is designed to consolidate material learnt in the Guitar Basics Tutor and present new topics, including accidentals, moving up the neck, two-part music, arpeggios and plucked chords.

Describing yourself as 'landmark', as this edition does, might seem presumptuous – but there is much to recommend this new book. It is full of effective graphics, songs and clapping games, jokes that work and well-known movie and rock tunes (some using tab); in short, it does everything to engage the young pupil.
