Emilio Pujol's Theoretical-Practical Method for the Guitar is available at *** Commercial link removed *** for about 45$. It's a used copy but I'm not sure if its worth of money. I need somebody's opinion, please.

I owned one of the volumes, and lent it to my brother-in-law over 10 years ago. I didn't care for it a bit, but that's just me. It's pretty detailed, quite like Aguado's method.

John Mills seems to be sadly neglected in mentions on this Forum which is a pity since not only is he a magnificent guitarist but in my opinion he has the finest tone I have ever heard since Segovia
This statement is so true


Having just started playing classical guitar again ,i find his
(Music From the Student Repertoire series 1 and 2)very good
My copies are old and tatty now(well used)some nice music in these books

i think Metodo Henrique Pinto - Iniciação ao Violão Vol I and vol 2 it's a good book for guitar beginers.

Nice thread, thanks for the list.

You should consider adding Aaron Shearer's Scale book It's great for warm-ups as it has a LOT of scales with all sorts of patterns.

Also I just got some exercises from my teacher. It's mostly in German but I believe it's Giluiani's Left Hand Studies and they are hard but good. I'm still struggling through the first exercise. It eventually builds to all sorts of intervals up and down the fretboard. good stuff!

I just finished reading Melody & Harmony for Guitarists by John Duarte for the second time , the first being years ago . There's a lot of dry reading but the knowledge Mr Duarte imparts is well worth all the struggles .
I only wish I could have absorbed a fraction of it . Maybe if I read it yet again . :chaud:
I know this book has been mentioned before in passing but it deserves a second look by all truly devoted classical guitarists and be warned it does take devotion to read through it ( at least it did for me :oops: ) but I still have to highly recommended the book .

Hi GuitaristOrdinate,
How does "Melody & Harmony for Guitarists by John Duarte" relate to the Lance Bosman book ? Do they cover the same ground ?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply -well no, actually...I was going to buy it years ago and then drifted into other styles of playing. I'm picking up the "pieces" and have come across a reference or two. I have a copy of Duarte's Foundation Studies..which I got for a couple of quid in a charity shop. I'll get hold of a copy Bosman as well and we'll compare notes?

Hi Kevin...thanks for the link to Mr. Provost's site - I found his lesson excerpts an interesting read.
I currently am using Aaron Shearer's latest edition of Learning the Classical Guitar volumes and I also have Charles Duncan's The Art of Playing Classical Guitar, both of which espouse much of the approach that Mr. Provost is repeating - I have to admit though, that Mr. Provost's technique explanations that I read online seem more to the point, and for me at least, are much easier to understand without constant reference to physiology and muscular-tension terminology.
From what I read, though, I'm not certain that I would learn anything more from Mr. Provost's technical publications than I would from the two that I already am working with? Is there anything so new in his technical approach that it is missing from the other two? My resources are limited and I don't necessarily want to purchase another technical method that would simply prove redundant.

Cheers!
