“Music Bumblebees Aural and Theory Workbook B continues to provide young musicians an innovative and interesting approach to aural and theory training. This workbook introduces more complex rhythms, and also begins work on simple melodic dictation through intervallic listening and the use of solfege names.
The Open Tuning Toolbox is a ground breaking guitar concept for studying the scale and chord shapes relevant to the most popular open tunings. By utilising a combination of modal scales and perfect chords, The Open Tuning Toolbox has effectively mapped out the lead and rhythm guitar essentials in Folk, Blues and Spanish guitar styles. The Open Tuning Toolbox de-mystifies the use of alternate tunings and allows the student to learn in a more straight-forward and immediately useable way. The Open Tuning Toolbox Book 1 begins the Open Tuning series with the ten most common tunings including DADGAD, DADF#AD and DGDGBD. Cal Williams Jr. is a multi-award winning guitarist and songwriter who has performed at numerous festivals in Europe and Australia. Cal has formulated his unique teaching method from many years of practical teaching experience.
