Product Description:
This book is for all guitarists who are looking for something new to play and who don't want to limit themselves exclusively to the more traditional type of duet music that's available. Stylistically, the pieces range from romantic, blues and bossa nova to samba, pop and folklore. The included CD contains every piece in two different versions as well as a preparatory exercise. First, there's a complete version for listening with an expanded and properly mixed arrangement. In this version, supporting instruments such as percussion, electric piano, strings, or acoustic bass are added in an appropriate manner for the style and mixed in softly without distracting the focus from the two guitars. After every listening version, a "picking pattern" follows: the rhythm guitar performs and stays with this picking pattern throughout the entire piece and it forms the common thread that represents the actual core of each composition. This pattern is also presented on the CD in a slow version of a representative section of each song which you can analyze and play along with. Finally, you'll find the play-along version. This version has been reduced to only the two guitars, with one guitar on the left channel and the other on the right. Written in notation and tablature. Text in English and German.

 

 

Hello and welcome to “2 -10 Duets in the styles of…”!

This book is for all guitarists who are looking for something new to play and who don't want to limit themselves exclusively to the more traditional type of duet music that's available.

Stylistically, the pieces range from romantic, blues and bossa nova to samba, pop and folklore. They are all original compositions, three of which you'll find in other books of mine but which are presented here in totally new duet arrangements.

In an ideal situation, you'll have a friend or colleague with whom you can play these duets; that's what they were written for in the first place! And that shouldn't be too much of a problem: it's certainly easier to get two people together rather than a whole band.

If you can't find a partner at the present moment, that's not a problem either. This is where the accompanying CD comes in: it contains every piece in two different versions as well as a preparatory exercise. First there's a complete version for listening with an expanded and properly mixed arrangement. In this version, supporting instruments such as percussion, sometimes electric piano, sometimes a string line or an acoustic bass are added in an appropriate manner for the style and mixed in softly without distracting the focus from the two guitars in any way whatsoever. This version should be fun to listen to and motivate you to want to play the piece yourself.

After every listening version, a so-called "picking pattern" follows: the rhythm guitar performs and stays with this picking pattern throughout the entire piece and it forms the common thread that represents the actual core of each composition. This pattern is also presented on the CD in a slow version of a representative section of each song which you can analyze and play along with.

After that you'll find the play-along version. It's been reduced to only the two guitars without any reverb or echo effect and in the stereo panorama, one guitar can be found on the left channel and the other on the right. Only where I deemed it absolutely necessary have I added a percussion instrument (a shaker) in the center of the stereo field to serve as timing aid. So when you're practicing and playing alone, you can blend out the instrument you don't need with the pan knob on your amplifier or receiver and take over that part yourself. Work with the book and the CD together – that way you'll hear what it's supposed to sound like right away. The pieces aren't presented in any special order of difficulty so you can start any where you'd like.

Finally, I'd like to thank the following people who were very helpful to me during my work on this book: my family, Victoria Heinrich, Mr. Reinhardt (Seagull and Sanchez Guitars), Matthias Haltenhoff from Emagic, Magunia
Music House in Stade and of course my editor, Karin Stuhrmann, and all the other folks at AMA Publishing.

I hope you have a lot of fun with this book!
Jürgen
