This is an anthology of beautiful easy-to-moderate level pieces by 19th century masters of the guitar: Dionisio Aguado, Antonio Cano, Federico Cano, Matteo Carcassi, Fernando Sor, and Francisco Tárrega, adapted for a modern right-hand technique that includes the little finger. German Professor of Guitar Leonhard Beck has compiled this collection with the assistance of Charles Postlewate, pioneer of the use of the right hand little finger. It shows the advantage of using the little finger in the playing of scales, chords, arpeggios, tremolos and harmonics for speed, accuracy, strength and balance. These studies make good repertoire pieces for the beginning guitarist or for the advanced guitarist who wishes to add the little finger to an already-developed right-hand technique. They are graded in three levels of Easy (7 studies), Easy-Intermediate (9 studies) and Intermediate (11 studies) for the progressive development of the right hand. an ideal companion to MB98710 – Right Hand Studies for Five Fingers: Using Chords, Arpeggios, Tremolos and Harmonics by Charles Postlewate. Standard notation only.

In the early 1700s, the Danish administration of the Virgin Islands suppressed African music. Undeterred, Virgin Island minstrels combined the African, European, and Taino music elements that created the eclectic genre quelbe. InThe Quelbe Method, Dale Francisoffers a comprehensive approach that demystifies music, develops artistry in tandem with fundamentals, and provides repertoire to build musicianship and individual performance skills. Francis shares his classical and jazz guitar skills, teaching practices, and performing artist perspective in an innovative approach to learning music. The three-part arrangements are open to interpretation and variation. Part two simulates the banjo, ukulele or guitar sound, and part three portrays a bass pattern that can be played on a one-string washtub bass. Students can learn cultural rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic concepts in addition to learning to play melodies and chord progressions by ear.The Quelbe Methodprovides a comprehensive approach to learning music through practical theory, ear training, rhythm, technique, and performance activities, enabling both adult and young musicians to further develop their abilities to read and write music, play by ear, and improvise.
