Ideal for those just beginning to play classical guitar, this is the first of a progressive series of ten handbooks. Primarily intended for candidates considering taking the London College of Music examinations in classical guitar playing, this handbook covers all the material needed for the Step One examination and, as well as fingerboard knowledge and musical knowledge sections, it includes pieces such as Jesu Joy Of Man’s Desiring by J.S Bach, Hungarian Dance No.4 by Brahms and Carnival of Venice by Benedict, plus five others.

Even if you do not intend to take an examination, the handbook provides a structured and comprehensive resource for studying the classical guitar, helping you to develop all aspects of your playing and extend your musical repertoire with pieces from a wide range of styles and periods.
