    DescriptionMastering the Guitar is an innovative, exciting way to learn the guitar. Co-authored by William Bay and Mike Christiansen, this extremely comprehensive method applies the internationally acclaimed Mel Bay teaching concept to the vast array of musical styles and techniques found in today's music. Written in notation and tablature, it covers guitar solo and accompaniment styles ranging from Celtic, to Classic, to Cajun; from Flamenco to Fiddle tunes; from Renaissance, to Rock, to Reggae; from Baroque, to Blues, to Bluegrass; from Latin, to Country, to Jazz. A special feature of this method is that it teaches both flatpicking and fingerstyle solo accompaniment techniques. Book 1B covers the keys of D, A, E, F, D minor, and B flat. In addition, book 1B has over 130 solos and duets and over 40 comprehensive scale and picking studies. Numerous chord progression studies and chord accompaniment pieces and etudes are also included. A companion double compact disc set is available for this book. We feel that Mastering the Guitar is the most comprehensive approach to guitar technique repertoire and performance to be found anywhere. Mastering the Guitar 1B CD is a special double companion CD set to the new comprehensive Mel Bay method of the same title. These CD's contain almost all of the solo and duet settings found in the book and are performed by William Bay, Mike Christiansen and Corey Christiansen. The recordings present an eclectic assortment of guitar styles played on steel string guitar, nylon string guitar and electric guitar. Some of the selections feature fingerpicking; others feature the use of the flatpick. The keys covered on this recording are D, A, E, F, D minor, and B flat. BothCD's contain over 100 minutes of recorded guitar solo and duet material.
