Modern Guitar Method Grade 1/Expanded Left Hand Edition teaches all of the original Mel Bay guitar method fundamentals but now is updated for the left-handed guitar student. Learning from right-handed books can be a challenge for a left-handed student. With Modern Guitar Method Grade 1/Expanded Left Hand Edition, all of the guides, charts and scale shapes are presented from the perspective of a guitar which has been strung "lefty." This allows the student to get right down to learning as opposed to having to translate all of the chord studies, reference chord tables, blues patterns, solos and licks for the opposite hand.
Left-Handed Guitar Rock Method also covers rock guitar essentials such as driving bass solos, rock/blues rhythm shuffles, bends, vibrato, hammer-ons, and pull-offs. Also included with the book is a companion CD featuring a blues/rock band playing all of the solos and examples. Concepts as indispensable as tuning, reading tabulature and finding notes on the fingerboard are also clearly explained. Lessons are presented in the keys of A, C, D, G and E.
