Yesterday I received Bill May's complete classic guitar book. When looking over it seems a very good book, it starts all the way from the beginning with left hand and right hand studies. He also explains the music notation in a logical sequence. I will use this book along with Bill May's classical beginner guitar solos book to start playing classical guitar studies.
So, if there are any beginners to look for a beginners book; these books seem to fit the bill so far.
Have a nice day.
Are you sure it's Bill May and not Mel Bay? I never heard about a book by Bill May (I checked again on amazon just now)
"The Complete Mel Bay Method for classical guitar" is certainly not a bad book, but I like Parkening's method a little more: I like it's structure better, and it has i little bit more explantion about technique.
In fact, there are many good beginner books for classical guitar, all with their strenghts and weaknesses, but most of them better than beginner books for steel string or electric guitar.
