    The Best Method for Learning the Guitar, December 26, 2008

    Having blundered through a number of guitar methods in my time (Sor, Aguado, Guiliani, etc.), I can attest to the soundness of the Sagreras’ lessons. The lessons are truly progressive, and musical ideas are pursued in a manner so logically and palpably coherent that even the beginning (or self-taught) guitarist can follow them without recourse to outside guidance.

    Of critical importance, the Sagreras’ lessons plunge the guitarist into the higher positions at an early stage, and points are hammered home in subsequent studies so that a perfectly comfortable familiarity is developed.

    Most of the studies have a singular beauty such that the guitarist feels compelled to continue practicing and polishing them long after they have been first successfully completed.

    Finally, I find the lessons so beautifully compiled and thought-out, that they successfully address technical deficiencies made evident in other more challenging studies written by Sor, and Aguado; it’s easier to work-up to Sor via Sagreras than its contrary. The volume is also spiral bound!!

    Overall this is an excellent classical guitar resource. I am a guitar tutor and recommend it to those of my students who want to learn classical guitar.

    Its main strength is the large body of carefully graded music.

    It assumes no prior guitar knowledge (eg, Ex.1 is the 6 open strings, focussing just on right hand).

    There is no tablature, but I think that’s appropriate for learning classical guitar music. However it could do with an introduction explaining how to read the sheet music. If you can’t read music, you would do well to get someone to help you as you get started on this book. There are detailed symbols for strings and fingerings, but again they may be confusing for a beginner guitarist. But once you get going, the music resources are excellent.

    I’m a guitarist of many years who only recently started playing
    classical guitar. I’m really happy with this book. The pieces
    are carefully graded from easier to harder, they sound good and
    are reasonably varied in style, and there is a short note before
    each piece explaining what is being taught through the piece.
    There is lots of music here: the pages are packed with music.
    The spiral binding makes it easy to use.

    A final nice aspect of the book is that the personality of
    Sagreras comes through in the forward and the notes.
