Reviews

Can OUP improve upon Debbie Cracknell's tried and tested book? The answer is yes. There is no padding here: everything is useful. New techniques are introduced logically, as are notes, rhythms, performance directions and other symbols, and printing is clear. This is one of the very best general classical guitar tutors. * Al Summers, Music Teacher, August 2011 *
