Format: Paperback
I bought "Baroque Guitar" about a year ago, and I am still having great pleasure of the book. Noad has included artists like Bach, Dowland, and many others. If you are a beginner I wouldn't recommend this book, even though the book includes a lot of examples and explaining; baroque guitar is difficult! ... Noad also includes a section about trills and ornamentation, which are characteristics for the baroque.

Format: Paperback
This guitar book by Frederick Noad is good for both instruction and performance. The book is laid out in a logical, easy to follow manner. The musical pieces progress from simple to more complex as the book goes on. At the beginning of the book, Noad explains the ornaments and notation of the Baroque style in simple language. All of the pieces are written in modern notation with helpful explanations of the origin of the composition, guidelines for playing, and composer backgrounds. I've had this book for five years, and I still am enjoying it. It's wonderful resource. If you are a guitarist wanting to get into the Baroque style, this is the book!

Format: Paperback
Most every classical guitarist should own at least a couple of the famous Noad books. "The Baroque Guitar" is one of my favorites, because of the composers and materials chosen for the book, particularly the Bach and Sanz pieces. As another review stated, this book is good for both instruction and performance, as the pieces in it are certainly worthy for the stage, and the duets are a nice touch, too.

Any classical guitarist that goes through this book will definitely have a good knowledge of the great classical repertoire that is available, and to have it all in one book is a nice feature. Noad's books are always well organized, however I frequently do not agree with his provided fingerings, as there are other fingerings that would make more sense, but that is a minor issue. The tunes included make up for that. One of my absolute favorites to play is the beautiful Bach "Sarabande," originally written for violin, but reproduced here in accurate fashion. Other tunes to check out in the book are the Bach "Double," Sanz's "Canarios," and the featured duets for two-guitars.

Overall this is a great book and is highly recommended. The only thing I would suggest to the buyer is don't be afraid to figure out and try some alternate fingerings.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this at a book sale in downtown Ithaca recently and it is worth its weight in halibut. The descriptions that accompany the pieces are a resource that will make you perform the piece better. Quality is evident on every page, Noad did his homework and if you ever come across this book I recommend you buy it. Something in here for everyone, sight reading pieces, concert pieces, guitar duets, vocal/guitar arrangements, you name it I'll play it. Keep those nails in shape g's and gents.
