The grades here are loosely based on the RCM Toronto. The grades are preparatory to grade 10 and then the ARCT. Keep in mind that there is no such thing as grades in music, pros play from a variety of levels. Many pieces could go in different grades depending on the quality and speed you want to play it at. However, the intention is to help students find repertoire appropriate to their level. ‘Book’ refers to hardcopy links.

Keep in mind that this is an actual lute book so you have to transfer the knowledge to guitar (maybe for more advanced players).

Beginner Guitar Lessons Free Pdf

During the last few years I've

written a number of bass guitar

lessons so I thought I would

share them online.

Hi! My name is Scott Noftle,

I have been a professional bass

player for about 20 years.

I've played in rock bands, indie


bands, hotel bands, and big

bands, but during my career I

primarily made most of my living

on cruise ships.

In 2001 I took the job as musical

director on the ship,

'The Adventure of the Seas'.

I was not only playing the bass, but also leading the orchestra, and running the entire music department.

Playing for a living was a dream I had in high school, and I feel fortunate that I've realized that dream.
Playing the bass has taken me all over the world, introduced me to celebrities, led me to life long friendships, and, most importantly... led me to meet my wife Carolina.

I've created these bass lessons and bass scale fingerings over a number of years. I hope you find them useful but also note that this site will always be a work in progress.

Lately I have been able to post some bass instruction videos on you tube.
