Classical Guitar Complete:
From Basics to Bach Volume 2 is the product of over a decade spent teaching college and university guitar classes and students. CGC Volume 2 begins with an escape from the first position of the guitar and goes on to cover transpositions, vibrato, dynamics, timbre, articulation, rubato, and phrasing. This volume also includes a range of music including examples from Morris, Carcassi, Giuliani, Dowland, and Paganini to name a few. Quizzes at the end of each chapter make it ideal for classroom guitar as well as private study. Included is a CD with 30 audio samples from the book, played by Morris, for students to hear and study.
