Pena, Joel - Fun With The Cuban Tres
Fun With Cuban Tres: Metodo del Tres Cubano
by Joel Pena
Joel Peña, a professional musician with many years of experience, has created the definitive method book for those interested in taking up the unique instrument known as the Cuban tres or three-course guitar. This bilingual book/CD method addresses everything from appropriate string gauges to creating authentic Latin tumbaos or groove patterns. Beginners and experienced players alike will appreciate the book's logic as each section features diagrams and exercises in standard notation to help the student understand the concepts being presented at any given point. The book includes many musical examples from the tres repertoire, and the companion CD, recorded by an authentic tresero, erases any doubts about performance style.
