Methodology and Technique 
By Naftali Lahav

  By: Naftali Lahav  [BUY Play Guitar_$26]        
A complete program for beginners designed to be studied through the Internet or by download the Play Guitar program straight into your Hard Disk as a setup installation file.

This method is graduated, easy, direct and can be used for self-instruction or in conjunction with a guitar teacher, step by step. The goal with the Play Guitar method is to teach ANY ONE that has the will to learn to play this instrument. The program begins with a preparation for each study element followed by a combination of elements and actual playing. The Play Guitar method is a graduated five stage method, following a prefatory "How to" stage.

One sentence description of each chapters:
Prefatory chapter: "How to" -   How to hold the guitar, position the hands and pluck the strings.
Chapter I: Privatization - Elaborating the basic elements: plucking with the thumb, fingers, and using the left hand.
  Chapter II: Combining the basic elements using the sign script: thumb and fingers plucking the strings together and combining both hands.
Chapter III: Playing short pieces using the numeric system (TAB): Malaguena, Waltz, Blues and more.
Chapter IV: Learning the notes of the first position.
Chapter V: Studying pieces for your first performance (for family and friends).

Seven Etudes -A guide for the young guitar artist: [PDF_$10]    
These are seven short etudes, each of a different nature. These etudes provide important material for learning to prepare a musical piece. They also make it possible to study musical elements. After learning the notes we can deal with understanding the nature of the piece, the sounds, the colors, the dynamics and other issues which the professional performer must deal with. The etudes are recommended as material for exams and concerts.
Here are two of them for examples:
