Guitar for Kids: First Steps in Learning to Play Guitar with Audio & Video

by Gareth Evans

“Gareth has written a really well thought out first book for teaching young children how to play. This one is definitely the one I’ll be using.” Bob Lucas – Bob Lucas Guitar Studios (Missouri US)

Guitar For Kids is a fun all-colour guide on the first steps of learning to play Guitar with over 70 photographic examples, purpose-made diagrams and cartoons. Starting with advice on buying your first guitar, how to hold the guitar and how to tune it, the music then begins with easy-to-play melodies using only open strings (open strings means only the plucking hand is used), before moving to simple pieces in which the fretting hand is also used. The book goes into detail for some basic techniques because you’re better off getting it right from the start rather than develop bad habits.

Tablature Based – Guitar for Kids uses mostly guitar tablature making this popular instrument more easily accessible for beginners (as do most adult guitar method books). The rhythmical aspect of Sight-reading is covered within the Chords section which eases-in the later Sight-reading section because the only new thing to learn will be reading different notes from the musical staff.

Audio Tracks – Guitar for Kids comes with 47 downloadable audio tracks with musical pieces in styles such as Rock, Blues, Pop, Flamenco, Jazz and Reggae. Each piece has a full band demo track and accompanying backing track with guitar part removed for you to play over.

What Else? – EZ chords are covered (easy chords with less notes) and are accompanied with diagrams of the full versions for later on, or if you feel like a challenge. There’s an introduction to Power chords with Rock pieces to play named after healthy greens “Broccolli Rockilly” and “Rocket Salad”. There’s a Blues and Rock duet with backing band tracks to play with a friend, and at the end there is a Quiz, no cheating!

Please Note: The eBook includes musical pieces so is not suitable for smaller screens.

75 Gedichte (German Edition)

by Michael Loeper

Schon alt ist die Kunst der Dichtung. Menschen wie Goethe, Schiller, Heine oder Fichte brachten es darin zu einer wahren Meisterschaft. Momentan ist wohl niemand mehr in der Lage, diesen Klassikern das Wasser zu reichen. Was nicht nur am geringeren Wortschatz liegen mag, der heute gebräuchlich ist. In diesem Buch haben wir unsere Gedichte aus den Jahren 2013, 2014 und 2015 zusammengefasst. Sicher, sie haben keinen Anspruch auf Weltniveau, aber wir finden sie schön. Man sollte dabei auch beachten, dass keines unserer Gedichte als Einzelstück zu verstehen ist. Vielmehr hängen sie alle mehr oder weniger zusammen und bilden, je nach ihrer Gruppe, eine ganze Geschichte.
