The third and final book in Michelle Nelson’s popular modern/plectrum guitar tutor series is designed to help the Grade Four-level student progress to Grade Seven standard through solos, studies, duet and exercises that develop note knowledge and reading to the 12th fret across the whole fretboard.
Continuing the format of Books 1 and 2, this volume is divided into three sections, each of which concludes with a written test:
• Part 1 includes notes on the 1st and 2nd strings to the 12th fret, root 5 major and melodic minor scale patterns, root 6 major scales, and related solos and duets.
• Part 2 introduces bar chords, 7th chords and extensions, playing in the 5th position, root 6 minor scales, pentatonic and blues scales and more.
• Part 3 moves on to the 7th and 9th positions and related keys, syncopated Swing and Jazz Waltz styles, advanced melody-chord solos, and using the whole fretboard.
