Experimentation with new methods of creating sounds with the guitar has led to this pioneering manual by the Elgart/Yates Guitar Duo. Every guitarist will find the directions easy to follow and build upon. Two pieces for prepared guitar, "Vortex" (solo) and "Snack Shop" (duet), are included. This clear introduction to prepared guitar will be of special value to the non-guitarist composer seeking uncommon sounds from the guitar. The Elgart/Yates CD and the Modern Arts Guitar Quartet CD include works for prepared guitar.
