Modern Method for Guitar Vol. 3

A Modern Method for Guitar by William G. Leavitt. Volume 3

Volume 3 further develops the 5 fingerings of Volume 2 into 13 positions! Yes thirteen! In my opinion Leavitt goes into overkill mode here... the 7 extra positions are permutations and "half positions" based on the original 5. This book is worth working through for the advanced player... but be warned... it is heavy going to do it all thoroughly. It took me over a year, 5 days a week.

A thorough knowledge of a scale in a few positions is more useful than a sketchy knowledge of the scale in 13 positions. But I do admire his thoroughness.
