Summary

Guitar Exercises For Dummies includes over 400 exercises along with lots of technique-building practice opportunities. It starts off with warm-up exercises (on and off-instrument) and then logically transitions to scales, scale sequences, arpeggios, arpeggio sequences, and chords, with a focus on building strength and consistency as well as refining technique. Concluding each section is a brief musical piece for the reader to try. Within each section, readers practice correct hand and body posture and experience variations such as fingering options and hand positions as appropriate. Readers practice incorporating other facets of musical performance in their exercises as well, such as tempo, time signature, phrasing, and dynamics. Supportive text is limited by providing only need to know information about practicing scales, chords and arpeggios in the context of specific skills and techniques.
