INTRODUCTION

Left hand technique for the guitar has been a neglected subject for some time on the fingerboard have never been thoroughly Total fingering possibilities This has been mainly because no systematic way of covering the explored. fingerboard has been devised. Quadraphonic Fingering is designed of finger order, all possibilities this knowledge you will be able to fingerboard regardless of the area

to cover the entire fingerboard by uti-lizing referred to as Quadraphonic Equations. With build a more cornplete mastery of the of music in which you are involved.

The right hand will not be neglected in the book. Different techniques of using the pick will be used in order to develop a solid balance between both the right and the left hands. With this i.n mind you are probably eager to learn what Quadraphonic Fingering is In both personal experience and teaching over the last few years, I have found it to be an invaluable tool for fingerboard exploratron which has been an aid both to myself and rny students. In writing this book I have come to realize ttr-e endless sounds that are possible on the guitar and will be exploring them for many years to come. Good luck to you in your explorations and I hope this book opens new doors to your music.

WHATIS QUADRAPHONIC IINGERING? Quadraphonic Fingering is a term used to describe the complete and total function i,vith the four fingers of the It deals specifically of fingering for guitar. t o t h e i r m a x i m u m i n d e p e n d e nce. The term quadraphonic, r e l a t e s left hand and broken down. yields this: QUAD= Four (fingers

of the left

hand)

PHONIC= Sound (sound they produce) Quadraphonic Fingering is to the guitar what permutation is t o m a t h e m a t i c s . A permutation is all the possible orders of a given number of elements. In the case of Quadraphonic Fingering, the four fi-ngers of the left hand are the elernents and there are twenty-four possible orders. Each order will be referred to as a quadraphonic equation. Each of the twenty-four quadraphonic e q u a t i o n s w i 1 1 b e used on single strings, adjacent strings, alternate strings, e t c . , a n d a l l combinations of these.

READTNG THE DIAGRAMS The horizontal lines in the diagrams represent gui-tar strings. The top horizontal line represents the first string (the string highest in pitch). The second horizontal line from the top represents the second string and so on. The vertical lines in the diagrams represent frets. In some cases the nut of the guitar will be shown, so that the space between it and the next vertical line to the right will be the first fret. The second fret wiLl be next to the right and so forth. I n o t h e r c a s e s , a R o m a nn u m e r a l will appear above the diagram. This indicates the number of the fret farthest to the 1eft. Each fret to the right wj-11then fol1ow in numerical order, counting up frorn the numeral given. Study the sample diagrams be1ow. nut frets fret -seventh f r e-,t etc. .

Finger numbers will appear at the appropriate places in the diagrans. A circled number indicates the note that is being sounded. Uncircled numbers must be held down while the circled number is being played. Circled numbers in the diagrams correspond to the numbers given below the wri-tten music. Diagrams with no circled numbers indicate that you must pick the finger order, either by applying a Quadraphonic Equation or by following the finger numbers below the acconpanying written music.

FINGERINGON ONE STRING QUADRAPHON]C

Note: To nake sure you have a complete understanding of the techniques involved in Quadraphonic Fingering, chapter I. will fresent a step by step approach to, mastering these principles. It is suggested that you go through the chapter carefully and understand all maieriat presented before going on.

Mathematically, the four elements can be arranged in twenty-four different (1x2x3x4 = 24). Therefore, there are twenty-four ways of changing finger Here are the equations:

This exainple uses the same extensions as previously. Here, however, the exercise is played on alternate rather than adjacent strings. (For a refresher in picking, go back to Exanple #6 and check the diagram on alternate string picking.) Example #26 will be played in the fifth position and will use quadraphonic equation Nunber 6 (1 - 4 - 2 - s). The first finger will extend.

Conplete mastery of the guitar fingerboard is a never-ending process. Quadraphonic Fingering is a far-reaching step toward that goal. As always, the real key to its successful use depends strictly on the arnount of tinre and effort you are willing to put forth. I intend to continue expanding its potential and I hope now that you can do the sane. Good Luck.
