I've been looking at the Etudes, and I have a bunch of questions. :)
  • In the first bar of the second Etude, what does the "1[" to the right of the time signature mean?
  • What do the small numbers above and below some of the notes mean?
  • What do the roman numerals such as III.... mean?
???

I have new suggestion for reading, is on the same webpage that Justin give us, but I think this could be easier because in the first pages tells you on what fret to play the note , I think this would be better for those starting out

Hope that helps

@alexmdac, If I am right the answers to your questions are:

- The 1 with the bracket means you have to barre with your first (index) finger
- The numbers above or below some notes show which finger to use for fretting those notes. They don't show the fret number, though. That's something you have to guess.
- The roman numerals show in which position you have to play.

Hope this helps!

So in order to play the etudes, you have to fingerpick... what are the general rules for fingerpicking? Does one alternate between index and thumb for eight and sixteenth notes, or is one finger assigned to a specific string?

@Kenny: it's a nice songbook indeed - one just hast to be aware, that not all of the songs are in C major. So you have to think about the sharps and flats as well...

A song suggestion
« Reply #6 on: August 09, 2011, 06:04:13 pm »
If anyone is looking for some songs that use E shape maj7 and min7 maybe this will help.  I was noodling around at the weekend with the Amy Winehouse version of 'Valerie' (as I'm sure many people are these days).  I noticed that there are various ways of playing it including one where the verses are almost nothing but E shape maj7 and min7.  I've tried it in various places up and down the neck to find a key that works for me.  I would suggest listening to the original and trying the same thing ( newbielink:http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/valerie-live/id323892897?i=323892959 [nonactive]).  It really is a great practise song for this stage.

Cheers,

tupple

Just wondering of anyone has any recommendations for which are the easy pieces from Justin's links (guitarpress and Guiliani's 24 Etudes)?

I'm this sense position means fret.  So III would mean play at the third fret.  V would mean play at the fifth fret.

Does anyone have suggestions for electric guitar songs that use E shaped(any of them) Barre chords and open chords. I currently learning Don't Look Back In Anger, but are there any others?

You can play any song you want using E shape barre chords. Just substitute the barre chord for the open
or A shaped barre chord. This will also help you learn all the notes on the E strings.

I am currently working on Better Be Home Soon by Crowded House which is in the Beginners Songbook. It is good for mixing bar and open chords.

Another great one by Crowded House that is right up the alley of with IM-2 songs is "Don't Dream It's Over". Such an awesome one and it has E-shaped barre major, minor and 7th chords. Can't wait to tackle it.

As stitch says a really good way to practice is to take a song you may have learnt as part of the BC and replace it with barre chords instead.
