There is a reason why The Guitarist’s Way series are still our bestselling guitar tutor books. Behind the iconic yellow cover of Book 1, teachers can find tried and tested pieces that facilitate a good technique and learning note reading. The books provide well-paced progression through fun and interesting pieces.
Now teachers and students can add a new dimension by playing along with the backing tracks. The Guitarist Way Book 1 backing tracks are available on iTunes for £4.99. There’s also a special offer for all four in the series is available for £12 here.
The backing tracks are written and recorded by Oli Whitworth, son of co-author John Whitworth. Oli’s creative arrangements bring fun and flair to the songs. Wait till you hear what they have done with Jungle! Careful thought has gone in to the arrangements, e.g. Jungle and Needing A Rest can be played as a duet to the backing of either track. Each piece has a guide, played by professional classical guitarist and teacher Alison Bendy.
If you are a teacher who has been using the books for years; use the backing tracks to enhance your lessons and enthuse your students. If you are a student; playing along can help with your timing and dynamics. You can also use the backing tracks as support when performing for the first time.
