Single String Studies for Guitar free pdf This book is a continuation of volume one but now using non-diatonic notes. Volume two helps the intermediate and advanced student improve their ledger line reading and general knowledge of each string of the guitar. Each exercise concentrates a students attention of one string at a time. This allows a familiarity to form between the written pitch and where it can be found on the guitar along with improving one's "feel" for jumping linearly across the guitar neck. This book is a required text at New York Universities and Princeton University Music department.When you work on the example found in this book do not look at your guitar to find the pitch. One of the main ideas of this book is to get a student proficient at knowing where a note is by feel and not by looking at the fretboard. I recommend playing these exercises with a low single note drone for each key. i.e. if you are in C major record a repeating low C note and use your ear to help you confirm if you are playing the right pitch. These exercise should be played quite slow to begin with. When you reach Exercise 7 and begin playing notes on any string take advantage of open strings so you can keep your left hand above the 12th fret as much as possible. This will prepare you for the high ledger line notes that show up more often than you probably would like.
