These melodies are what all sight-reading should be about but usually are not. They use easy notes and rhythms in a most methodical, imaginative and pleasurable way, concentrating on single-line melodies in first position only. This book has one hundred melodies which could be introduced to the student from almost the very first lesson, and as the melodies get progressively more complex, the book will be useful for higher-grade students. Although the book is aimed at the grade 1-2 player, more experienced students may also find it useful to try playing the studies in higher positions.

Most guitar students have not worked through a methodical approach to reading music notation, which limits their personal progress and sometimes their career development. the author has approached the studies from two directions: horizontal, or up the fingerboard on individual strings, and positional. the first two parts of the book are extensively fingered and designed to make intervals and melodic patterns more visually apparent by repetition of similar ideas in different locations on the neck. the third part contains five extended compositions, which draw from the author's jazz background. the first four include chord changes for duo practice, as well as challenging melodic lines in a variety of meters that may be used for the study of improvisation. the fifth piece is written in the Indian Raga style. Basic music theory and rhythmic studies are included in the appendices.
