This revolutionary new method combines solid pedagogy with a focus on real-world guitar skills such as strumming and fingerpicking, pivotal rock and blues riffs, improvising, reading music, and music theory. The included MP3 recordings demonstrate every example and song in the book, and specialized instructional tracks feature concise explanations and demonstrations of all new concepts and techniques. The included SI Player software lets students slow tracks down and loop sections for continuous practice, and the video lessons on the included DVD explain and demonstrate all the concepts and techniques.
"It's about freakin' time! Finally, somebody came out with a beginner instructional guitar method book series for adults and teenagers alike that's not an outdated, depressing turn-off that makes you want to throw your guitar off a cliff after having struggled to learn embarrassingly unsatisfying versions of the audience favorites 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' and 'Three Blind Mice.' Sound Innovations for Guitar is a thoughtfully conceived and well executed series of guitar method books (with accompanying DVDs) that is made for people who love guitar music and live in the real, modern world. It is a tool that engages your interest and harnesses your intuition, various senses and different modes of learning, as well as the latest digital technology, to get you playing things that you will be eager to practice and proud to show off." -Jimmy Brown, Senior Music Editor, Guitar World
