So I guess I use this book as a supplementary book rather then as my main source guitad instruction.
While the edits aren’t bad, there is no explanation of what and why he edited certain things, like the idea of strummed chords in all the Baroque guitar pieces. BTW, this is a big Ramirezso you can see I have big hands and I silo use the 4th finger approach.
If you have small hands like I do, it could spell the difference between a cleanly articulated note and a buzz. Ron rated it it was amazing Jul 04, Noad gives lots of examples dealing with most of the subject matter in the book. This book is a challenge.

Duncan, Parkening, Waldron, and Sagreras are more my cup of tea.
The fourth edition features revised and updated exercises and an expanded selection of solo guitar repertoire gleaned from the best-selling Frederick Noad Guitar Anthology.
Jonathan rated it it was amazing Mar 27, But then again, Naod have a feeling my teaching style is quite different from what Noad’s was, thus why I don’t use the book. I don’t think the thumb position is that big of a deal, as long as it doesn’t restrict the motion of the fingers.

I can’t remember how many “learning to play CG” books I acquired before Noad, but I do nook that once that book was in my possession I stopped looking and started playing. After having worked through this book, I have improved my technique, my musical repertoire, my note-reading abilities and have grown to love the classical guitar so much, that I haven’t picked up the electrical guitar since.
