I was trying to read it on a full sized monitor and can freferick make out the text. I just received my book last week and so far so good. I’ve been playing guitar for many years and have always played by ear, know all the chords and can strum and finger pick various styles of music from rock to country, blues, pop, was in bands, did solo gigs, etc.

After 40 years of playing steel string acoustic guitars and electric guitars, I decided to learn classical guitar and learn to read music. I am so excited! I couldn’t be happier!

Frederick Noad

I’m shopping around for a classical guitar teacher but am in no hurry. For now I’m going to use the book without a teacher and am going through the exercises and lessons on my own.

I’ve played many instruments over the years. I’m using this book with my weekly guitar lessons and I’m greatly pleased. I’ve played many instruments over the years, mostly jazz saxophone, but my longing for the guitar is now coming true.

I’ve heard people complain about the non-spiral format and when I received this book I understood their frustration. My teacher took his in after seeing mine and has passed this tip along to his studio. I’m taking weekly lessons and this is the book my instructor teaches from. The material is presented very logically and methodically. Over, the past 9 months of use, I can “see” the thought and effort that went into creating and organizing the material.

I feel like I’m making progress yet am constantly challenged and frdeerick by the material. My teacher will also sometimes jump forwards and backwards in the material when he senses my eagerness and frustration, respectively. I will always recommend beginners study with a teacher, there’s simply no better way to learn classical guitar IMO. But, if you cannot classicak that luxury, you can’t go wrong with this book. So why only nosd stars then? The best way to learn how to play an instrument is certainly playing it and although it might seem obvious that is not the principle many instructional books adapt.

Well, Solo Guitar Playing I is different at that point because there is very little text and a lot of music.


I can say that this book covers three main principles of Classical Guitar Playing: Finally last year I decided to go back and learn how to read music for the classical guitar. I realized that the book skipped some things like teaching a certain note before it appeared on the exercises.

The Classical Guitar, the Frederick Noad Guitar Anthology

So I came across Noad’s book on the internet. I got to see the first edition of it at the library and decided to get it. Well, I take it everywhere. You can see that there is a great mind behind the book because he will give the right suggestions to fix the mistakes that novice students are likely to make and to correct those who are self taught.

Besides that, there is also the pieces that were added to this edition that come from the Noad’s Guitar Anthology. There is a lot to learn in this book. Take it slow and enjoy it. Follow the tips and you will be able to learn and enjoy learning.

And Fun For Teachers Too! As the author states in the forward, this book is designed to be played as duets with a teacher. The student parts are super simple, designed to instill confidence, and the teacher accompaniments are just tricky enough to keep the teacher focused too! The harmonies are nice, and as a teacher, it’s more enjoyable than just playing the same part as the student, as is the norm with most other method books.

One improvement I’d like to see is the addition of a plastic comb binder, to make page turns easier and to help it lay flat on a music stand. What more can I say. If you want to learn to play classical guitar, this is the book to use. However, if your musical abilities are rather limited, as are mine, I would suggest getting the book with the CD.

I also agree that this should also be offered in a spiral bound version, so that it can lay flat on the music stand. As it is now, I have to resort to clips, clamps, and breaking the spine of the book in order to keep it open. I love seeing Mr Noad on YouTube. I have really tried to use this book but it will not stay open for me, not even with binder clips.

So I was glad when I found his old pink and yellow first edition version that cooperates in letting me see the music! I guess I will have to learn how to get and use a plastic binder thingy.
