From The Author
“The Mel Bay Guitar Method is a venerable approach to our beloved instrument. As great as it is, I firmly believe it will cause more harm than good with most students without the proper guidance.
This is no fault of the author. He wanted to put together a comprehensive and progressive order of material that really teaches someone the guitar in a complete musical way. He couldn't do that AND teach you everything you need to know about how to really be SUCCESSFUL in learning the material!
I will teach you that. Everything on this site, and most especially, everything in The Principles, is what it takes to be successful with this book, as with any other guitar book.
If you are using the Mel Bay method, there are a number of basic things you should already be familiar with or developing, without which, you WILL NOT LEARN PROPERLY! That means you will struggle with and never really be able to play or feel comfortable with the music. Or you will manage to get the notes, but you will be building in many limitations to your abilities and potential for future development as a guitarist.
Armed with the concepts and skills that I teach in The Principles, you will be able to make great use of the instructions I will give you here concerning how to deal with many of the difficulties you will have as you work with the Mel Bay Vol.1 book."...Jamie
