Lesson Book 2 provides a seamless transition from Book 1. It introduces three-string chords along with the natural notes on strings four, five, and six. Additional new concepts include eighth notes, chromatics (sharps, flats and naturals), pick-up notes, ties, and rests. Students are encouraged to strum chords to accompany the melody whenever possible. Many optional teacher duets are included. (Students may enjoy playing the teacher duet parts as well!)
Every song title has three tracks on the CD:
1) the teacher duet on the left channel and the student solo on the right channel;
2) an orchestration at a performance tempo where the instrumentation and music style enhance the various moods of each individual piece; 3) the same orchestration at a slower (practice) tempo.
