Above all, I must explain the context that binds me to this method.
I am a guitar teacher and patron of my school. This school is affiliated with a network comprising a 30aine other schools like mine in hex. This is the network of National Schools Guitar Ibanez Guitar Generation which happens to be the official method (this is also clearly mentioned on the cover). The method also takes up, end of the book, the list of teacher and their contact information at the time of the first edition.
I will try to be as objective as possible. But you are now aware of the situation.
>>> How long you use it?
Since its release in 2006.
>>> What is special that you love the most, least?
Work-covering all levels of the bases rhythm (Go / Back) to advanced concepts of harmonization of a range of explanations and summaries on improvisation.
Exercises short-quite varied.
The two-CD containing all the exercises in audio.
Mock-clear without unnecessary crap.
-The selling price very affordable given the content.
-The audio versions of the exercises are too short and too fast most of the time. They can be used only listen to how the exercise should sound, but do not usually play along for beginners.
-It's not 2 CD should have been but 10 containing all audio exercises several tempi and curly at least 1 to 2 min. Alas, the price of the book would have exploded view of the extra materials and extra cost of production that refuses Carisch preferring to propose methods to floor price.
-One regret about the progression of certain sections which sometimes lacks linearity. Sometimes we go from easy to more difficult without an intermediary, but it is not the case for all sections.
-The proportion a little too big for my taste in "finger accompaniment" knowing that the author, Yannick Robert is an expert fingerstyle (playing jazz fusion only with this technique).
Did you >>> tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, I taught for over 15 years and during that time I had a lot of other tested methods to my students. In the early years, including many I have used another method m ^ m author, Green Light at the Guitar which is far more restricted.
How do you >>> the price / quality ratio?
Good from my point of view because usually for such content, you must generally pay much more. To the extent any work in this area is really perfect, I think Guitar Generation is an excellent choice.
>>> With experience, you do again this choice? ...
To the extent that there is not really better in the marketplace, yes. For better, I'll have to stick to it and write my own method ...
