The Complete Idiot's Guide to Classical Guitar Favorites is perfect for any pop, rock, folk, or blues guitarist who wants to explore classical music. Author Thomas Kikta of Duquesne University teaches classical fingerstyle technique in the context of some of the most beautiful classical guitar repertoire ever assembled. Composers covered include Sor, Carcassi, Bach, Aguado, Tarrega, Albeniz, Pachelbel, Mason Williams, and Jay Ungar. All songs and music examples are arranged in full music notation and TAB, including chord diagrams, and all are demonstrated on the included enhanced CDs.

Using Alfred’s exclusive Tone ‘N’ Tempo software on the included CDs, this fun and educational book provides customized learning by allowing the user to easily loop sections for practice, slow tracks down or speed them up without changing the pitch, and even change keys! The CDs can also be played in a conventional CD player.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Classical Guitar Favorites is now available in a book and two CD format for $24.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or visit
