 Elgart/Yates Guitar Duo: Prepared Guitar Techniques

Elgart/Yates Guitar Duo: Prepared Guitar Techniques: Revised and Expanded 30th Anniversary Edition

$15.00

NEW! 30th anniversary second edition, revised and expanded to 32 letter-size pages! The first manual on how to prepare your guitar to create extraordinary, unimaginable sounds. Borne out of a spirit of experimentation, this book is a document of techniques explored by the Elgart/Yates Guitar Duo. Every guitarist will find the directions easy to follow and build upon. Two pieces for prepared guitar, "Vortex" (solo) and "Snack Shop" (duet), are included. This clear introduction to prepared guitar will be of special value to the non-guitarist composer seeking uncommon sounds from the guitar by writing prepared guitar music. The Elgart/Yates LP and the Modern Arts Guitar Quartet CD include works for prepared guitar.

En esta segunda edición del libro Prepared Guitar Techniques, Eldgar y Yates ayudan tanto a intérpretes como a compositores a conocer en profundidad la apasionante temática de la guitarra preparada mediante la creació de diagramas explicativos claros y sencillos, notación en pentagrama y tablatura, explicación de los materiales a usar y de cómo colocarlos, siempre teniendo en cuenta que la principal regla de esta estética es la propia experimentació.

In this second edition of the Prepared Guitar Techniques book, Elgart and Yates help both performers and composers to gain an in-depth understanding of the exciting world of prepared guitar by creating clear and simple explanatory diagrams, notation on staff and tablature, explanation of the materials to use and how to place them, always bearing in mind that the main rule of this aesthetic is experimentation itself.
