The Play Guitar method is a process for studying guitar that has five logical chapters, and an opening chapter named: "How to..."

How to... How to...
The "How to..." chapter guides us in all of the "how to..." areas:
How to hold and place the guitar.
How to place your right and left hands in correct playing position.
How to tune the guitar.
How to read the numeric system (tab), and more.
How to stroke the strings with your right hand fingers.
How to read and practice durations.
"How to..." is an extremely important chapter! Please read it all and assimilate it step by step.

Privatization Chapter I. Privatization
In the Privatization chapter, we shall learn to activate each hand and finger separately.
That is way the name of this chapter is: Privatization.
We will practice the right hand thumb on the bass strings, than the right hand fingers on the treble strings. Then, we will practice each of the left hand's fingers - separately.
The Privatization chapter is an important preparation for the next chapter: Combinations

Combinations Chapter II. Combinations
In this chapter we shall combine the individual elements into integrated and coordinated playing actions. First, the right hand thumb playing against the other fingers, then gradually we shall combine the left hand fingers...

First piecesChapter III. First pieces
Now let's say you are a guitarist on the road... and it is about time that you will play some pieces for your friends, parents, teachers or anyone.
In this chapter you will find some really nice pieces such as a short Baroque piece, Waltz, Autumn Leaves, Malaguena and even a Blues. Do learn some of them by memory; - they are easy and great fun.

Notes Chapter IV. Notes
Here, we shall gradually learn how to read and play notes.
It will be much easier now, as we already know the basic playing positions, so we can concentrate on the notes. Gradually, note-by-note, finger-by-finger, string-by-string, we shall play notes.

In Chapter IV, Learning Notes, there is a significant expansion of music!
In fact, it is an entire Guitar Notes-method - within the
Play Guitar program!
for more information. 

: Learning guitar's notes is easy. Now you can learn notes in a creative and enjoyable way by using: "Compose & Play" boards...

In this chapter you will have some beautiful tunes as preparation for the last chapter:

My first guitar repertory Chapter V. My first guitar repertoire
I selected a lullaby as the opening tune for this Chapter.
It is an amazing beautiful melody by its innocence and simplicity.
Than we shall play some short guitar pieces written by great guitar masters such as: Giuliani, Carcassi, Carulli and Sor.
I strongly recommend that you learn these compositions by memory ...while you are improving your sound and dynamics for an intimate performance for friends or family.
