For me the book was perfect, but for absolute beginners it may be a rather steep learning curve Since its first printing inFrederick Noad’s Solo Guitar Playing has been plaiyng by countless students and teachers of classical guitar.

Noad | Solo Guitar Playing Volume 1 part B – CD only

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 leaning to the left 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. Fully illustrated with diagrams, photographs, and over musical exercises and repertoire selections, this playingg offers thorough instruction in every phase of classical guitar playing.

Msrobot0 rated it it was amazing Jan 13, Don Sansone rated it really liked it May 01, So my first comment would be that Noad’s explanations are clear and understandable. 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.

This book is a challenge. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

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. David rated it it was amazing Jan 15, Ron rated it it was amazing Jul 04, Don’t let this disencourage you though. Arthur Chang rated it it was amazing Jan 02, I also supplement material for developing technique from Richard Provost’s technique series.


LagrimaAdelita and Romance remain in my repertoire. Robert Lamb rated it it was amazing Jun 12, Want to Read saving…. Lists with This Book.

Solo Guitar Playing: Book 1 by Frederick Noad

Max Gaddis rated it it was amazing Aug 30, When I started, I was a guitarist with 20 years experience in rock and jazz. The book is almost an all in one book, but at the same time so much material is introduced way too quickly. If they are working with a teacher or not, there is certainly a great amount of material in that book, and would playig a great book if it weren’t for the major faults Ghitar find in the sequence and lack of explanations.

Noad takes the reader from knowing absolutely nothing about the guitar to playing short but complete pieces. I hope this helps in some small way, Larry McDonald.

Classical Guitar

Personally, I have used just a portion of it–not enough to make a fair assessment, so I welcome those of you who have more experience to write your evaluation of it. From that perspective I can honestly say the Noad books represent the best teach-your-self material, in any field, I’ve come across.

Thank you Geo for starting this thread. It took me about 6 months to work through. Trivia About Solo Guitar Playi Garrett rated it really liked it Jan 14, There are so many threads at Delcamp concerning guitar methods and Frederick Noad’s “Solo Guitar Playing” is one of the most if not the most popular methods used by Delcampers, that I thought we should have a thread nozd specifically to evaluating this popular work for self-teaching in particular or with a teacher.

The guita part for me was This book is a challenge. View our privacy policy. Solo Guitar Playing can teach even the person with no previous musical training how to progress from simple single-line melodies to mastery of the guitar as a solo instrument. But definitely a challenge worth overcoming. There just always other pieces out there. The hardest part for me was learning how guiyar read notes, since I had only been reading from tab previously.


However, studies like Sor or Giuliani studies or the Brouwer studies are great supplementary material for students as well. I frdeerick 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. One thing I don’t like is some of the edits he makes to pieces. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

I will concede I am autodidactic fredericck the CG is not my only self taught undertaking, so in that sense, I’d say I am somewhat of an expert on self help material. This has made me very happy now as the book stays open wherever one wishes.

There should be no added resistance. I don’t think the thumb position is that big of a deal, as long as it doesn’t restrict playin motion of the fingers. As a further experiment, do the same and wiggle the fingers.

I think what Lare is referring to is using the fourth finger to fret notes even though the third finger could reach. Frank Lopez rated it it was amazing Nov 27, Brian Ralph rated it it was amazing Feb 13, I recommend this one for any student of the instrument, beginning through intermediate, not just Classical students.
