    mel bay guitar method 1

    I'm thinking if the contents of mel bay's modern guitar method book 1 is somehow
    similar to the articles on ibreathe music's site? intervals, major scale, triads, arppegios...
    i've already studied those articles from ibreathe and know how to read notes on the
    whole fretboard, play on time (different notes), and wondering if i would just unnecessarily
    spend money on mel bay's modern guitar method book 1. are the articles on ibreathe (mentioned above)
    sufficient enough not to buy melbay modern guitar method 1 provided that i've
    studied those articles? thanks!

    Looks like no one here is familiar with that book. Based only on all of the other similar-soundling titles I have looked at, I doubt it covers any of the material that you've found at this site. If you can, visit a Guitar Center store where they probably have that title, and check it out for yourself. Best of luck!

    I teach out of this book occasionally. My young students find this book very hard! It's pretty hard compared to say... Hal Leonard method book 1. If you are enjoying it, then by all means use it! If you are looking for more practical application reading books (Some people get sick of playing cumbaya and amazing grace), MUSIC READING FOR GUITAR by David Oakes (MI) is a great one, and the Berklee reading editions are nice as well.

    Or the William Leavit Method, is sponsored by IBM... wait IBM is sponsored by it? anyways, it's good, Guni recomends it and I can certify that it works really good. For both teaching and self study.
