Now with downloadable play-along audio tracks (look for the code in the book) at practice and performance tempos, recorded by New Zealand guitarist John Couch. Enjoy the duet experience, even if you can’t meet up to play!
The pieces in Connections for Guitar duo cover a wide range of styles and present many of the same challenges found in more traditional repertoire whatever the instrument – tonal beauty, balance between melody and accompaniment, natural movement and phrasing. More rhythmically oriented pieces require coordination, a deep-seated sense of pulse, and awareness of stylistic touches and accentuations. All pieces benefit from a strong connection to mood, movement, or image.
As fun and entertaining additions to the performance repertoire of young players, these pieces will prove to be popular selections for recitals, festivals, informal performances, and examinations. Parents and friends will enjoy them too!
