Hagakure rated it really liked it Aug 08, This was before the Net. When I started, I was a guitarist with 20 years experience in rock and jazz. Our website is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors. But if you’re going the self teach route, you don’t have that warm body beside you to help so in that sense, I found nothing that could be considered a short coming.
One of the great things is the fact its an ‘anthology’ one book is equal to at least 3 method books of different writers.
Fully illustrated with diagrams, photographs, and over musical exercises and repertoire selections, this book offers thorough instruction in every phase of classical guitar playing. I didn’t feel the need for any supplementary materials although I did build up a collection of scores but not because the books I also went through book 2 don’t have a fabulous collection of music in and of themselves.
Solo Guitar Playing: Book 1 (with CD)
I can’t remember how many “learning to play CG” books I acquired before Noad, but I do know that once that book was in my possession I stopped looking and started playing. I like how he sequences the arpeggio patterns, working from book to complex, and only single direction arpeggios. But perhaps the huge spin is at times annoying when trying to use the book as it keeps closing. Mainly acoustic, with finger picking. Mainly focussed on electric guitar.
Want to Read saving….
The hardest part for me was learning noac to read notes, since I had only been reading from tab previously. For me the book was perfect, but for absolute beginners it may be a rather steep learning curve I learned Alhambra from the book because its there but Leyenda I had to buy.
The pictures in the beginning are so bad with Noad shot at an angle so you can’t clearly see how his sitting position, and the woman in the next picture certainly has a hunched right shoulder, and appears to be boad to the left It makes the very short list with Parkenings book. Motion is restricted, especially in advanced players who have dense thumb-muscles.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. This one may be better. I also supplement material for developing technique from Richard Provost’s technique series. Sage rated it did not like it Jul 29, So my first comment would be that Noad’s explanations oslo clear and understandable. Are supplementary materials needed and, if so, what are some recommendations?
But then again, I have a feeling my teaching style is quite different from what Noad’s was, thus why I don’t use the book. Frank Lopez rated it it was amazing Nov 27, NOT good for a book that is also meant to be for the self taught student. To ask other readers questions about Solo Guitar Playingplease sign up. Duncan, Parkening, Waldron, and Sagreras are more my cup of tea.
If you keep at it, you will learn it.
The fourth edition features revised and updated exercises and an expanded selection of solo guitar repertoire guitat from the best-selling Frederick Noad Guitar Anthology. 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. There is a refreshing trend away from the third finger approach, at least here in the US, because it encourages left-hand pronation a counter-clockwise turn away from the neck.
I think what Lare is referring to is using the fourth finger to fret notes even though the third finger could reach. Book 1 with CD by Frederick Noad. Don’t let this disencourage you though.

The book is almost an all in one book, but at the same time so much material is introduced way too quickly. Debra rated it it was amazing Aug 29, Techniques like scale development in both rest playingg free stroke technique and arpeggio technique aren’t the best explanations. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker on our website. This book is a challenge. I would think you should be able to get to the 5th lesson in a month as the first 4 lessons are basically learning the notes in the 1st position.
My biggest complaint is that it uses the left-hand 3rd finger approach instead of the 4th finger approach as established by Sor.
Noad takes the reader from knowing absolutely nothing about the guitar to playing short but complete pieces. Books by Frederick Noad. I recommend this one for any student of the instrument, beginning through intermediate, not just Fredegick students. Hold your left hand in front of you, palm up, and move the unflexed thumb into the middle of the palm, you will likely feel a stiffening of the the fingers. Now, as a comparison, try flexing the fingers when the thumb is in its natural position, which is left of the first finger.
