From cuatristas Quique Ayala and Gil Santiago comes our first book to teach you how to play the Puerto Rican Cuatro in
A very basic manual, this book covers all the details: the parts of the instrument, how to hold it, how to tune it, how to play it (of course!) and it explains the music, the chords and the scales. You'll even be able to get started with a few songs.
This book stands well on its own for the beginning players, but for English only speaking musicians it will also supplement the more extensive books that are only available in Spanish, and make much of what is there more usable to a non-Spanish speaking musician.
English, soft cover, 20 pages, 2006.
Comes with a Companion CD!
The CD contains the following songs (which are taught in the book):
|Cuando Las Mujeres
|Canto Hondo de Vieques
||Noche de Paz (Silent Night)
||Cascabel (Jingle Bells)
|De la Montaña
