The Chromatic Guitar Method

Joseph Nicholas Burke

The Chromatic Guitar Method was written to help beginning guitar students better understand music theory and music notation. In my 17 years of experience teaching guitar I have found common pitfalls associated with the standard guitar method books used in most institutions.
There is a need for a new pedagogical method for guitar as the standard methods which take a diatonic approach to instruction create confusion and are simply out of date. These methods are no longer relevant to the modern guitar student In establishing a context for my pedagogical method, the philosophical foundations of using a chromatic approach will be examined as well as the challenges faced by musical educators using alternative pedagogical methods
