This is a clear and concise method to help the intermediate-to-advanced guitarist develop the crafts of composing and arranging. With an accessible presentation of theory as it applies directly to the guitar, topics include: the structure and construction of a melody, harmonizing a melody, development of melodic and harmonic ideas, musical form, the roll of rhythm and tempo, the guitar as a compositional tool, and how all these elements are combined into a fully realized piece of music.
 
The importance of open tunings and why they play a major role in fingerstyle guitar is discussed, along with their benefits and practical limitations. Finally, it covers techniques particular to fingerstyle guitar playing and how to approach performing, dealing with nerves and presentation, letting mistakes go and enjoying the experience of playing and performing. ©2020, 124 pages
