Fully supported with audio performances and backings, the 25 pieces carefully progress from playing open strings (eg Stringalong Rag) to songs with one chord (Shortnin bread, A minor miracle, F major march) to two chords (Baboushka, Tab tango, Calypso strum) and finally three chords (In South Africa, Playing the blues).
Finger-picking and strumming styles are all introduced step by step in pieces which are fun and stylistic. This is a thoroughly musical introduction to an immensely popular instrument, opening the way to independent music-making for all.
The teacher's edition, BOOK+CD-ROM (ISBN 978-1-4081-5729-9), contains a whiteboard e-book with embedded audio and video tutorials for every song, making it ideal for classroom teaching.
