- What people are saying:
- I'm an advanced beginning guitarist and I studied out of Accompaniment Volume One: Bass and Chords Simultaneously with Mr. Arnold. It took me only TWO WEEKS of practice to master this style! It sounds so hard but once you understand what to do, it's just NOT that hard to play. The chords just flow one to another. I actually find the chords easier than barre chords. Using this style I started a duet with a singer and we are working every weekend at a restaurant. This 4.99 book has made me about 100 X that each month. Get it and start making money! :) F. Thurman
- I had heard this technique for years but figured it was out of my league. It looks extremely hard to play and sounds like you are a genius. I was completely blown away when I almost had it together with only a few hours of practice. Finally something that is easy on the guitar and makes me sound like a pro. Highly recommend. E. Ealing
- I'm an advanced jazz guitarist but never quite got this bass/chord thing happening. This short book had me playing the style in an hour. Very good quick study of the style. I've started replacing the chords with the chords found in the Essential Scales book so now I'm developing a whole new style with it. Very cool! R. Jones
- I've had teachers show me this style but I never had anyone who could break the style down and explain it theoretically. Accompaniment Volume One: Bass and Chords Simultaneously may be short but it is packed with what you need to really understand this style so you can accompany any song. W. Quinlan.
