The guitar continues to be the single most popular musical instrument in America today. Santorella is a premier publisher of instruction books for the guitar with titles ranging from helping beginners learn their chords to aspiring professionals seeking to hone their skills to ever greater complexity. For the novice, the newest Santorella guitar instruction title is "Teach Yourself Guitar" by expert and experienced guitarist Bob Hartz. Included is thoroughly 'user friendly' instruction into the basics of music theory with the lessons set in standard notation and tablature along with easy-to-follow exercises specifically designed to build familiarity and proficiency in playing the guitar. Enhanced with the inclusion of an accompanying CD, "Teach Yourself Guitar" is highly recommended, especially for those who do not have ready access to formal classes of instruction through a school music department or private tutor. Also very highly recommended from Santorella are two other newly released guitar oriented instructionals by professional guitarist Rod Goelz: "Make It Funky: Bass Edition" (TS378, $18.95) and "Make It Funky: Guitar" (TS379, $18.95) that explore fun bass and funk guitar styles of the 1960s and 1970s. Dedicated music students and music department instructors would do well to visit the Santorella Publications website at www.santorellapublication.com for a complete listing of their entire instructional books catalog.
