John Williams, in his foreword to this book, points to the unique position of the guitar in the development of Western music. Its strength has always been as a popular instrument, yet it can also form a bridge between the popular and the classical traditions. In this guide for students and teachers alike, Michael Stimpson, himself an experienced player and teacher, has assembled and collaborated with a list of experts. Their contributions bring together the various aspects of learning and teaching, repertoire and technique, embracing not only the classical tradition but also the essentials of lead, bass, folk, flamenco and jazz guitar in a handbook of unparallelled scope and authority. Contributors: Marjorie Glynne Jones, John Gavall, Michael Burnett, Michael Stimpson, Martin Teale, Charles Ramirez, Carlos Bonell, David Russell, Brian May, Alphonso Johnson, John Etheridge, Bert Jansch, and Paco Pena. Guitar players of all levels; guitar teachers, class teachers of junior and secondary age levels who are music specialists, and the non-specialist class more
