Argentine musician, educator, and composer Guillermo Marigliano has released a new guitar method book. For individuals who desire to learn how to play Tango music, this book serves as a learning manual. It is not a solo guitar arrangement book. This book explains several techniques to accompany a vocalist or oneself, from the most basic tango rhythm to the most complex. Beginning with basic traditional rhythms, we move through the styles of some of the most renowned tango composers (Carlos Gardel, Anibal Troilo, Astro Piazzolla). The book includes chords, rhythms, variations, ideomatic tango single lines, and the most popular phrases in tablature and music notation.
You can apply the musical elements found in this book to any tango song and create new ones.
You can use the musical concepts you learn in this book to any tango song and create your own comping and arrangements with them.
It would be impossible to cover the history of the tango music style, which has hundreds of composers and songs, in just a single book, but this initial method is an excellent place to start.
The Tango Guitar Method includes access to a video online showing each example being performed by Mr. Marigliano.

Tango Guitar Method isn't just a guitar method; it's a comprehensive learning manual that guides you through the intricate techniques needed to accompany a vocalist or play solo. Marigliano starts with the basics, taking you on a rhythmic journey through the styles of iconic Tango composers like Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla.
It doesn't just give you chords and rhythms; it provides ideomatic Tango single lines and popular phrases in tablature and music notation, enabling you to apply these concepts to any Tango song and even create your arrangements. While it can't cover the vast history of Tango in a single book, Tango Guitar Method is the perfect starting point for anyone passionate about exploring this enchanting musical style.
What I loved most about this book is its versatility. Not only does it teach you the essentials of Tango guitar, but it empowers you to take those skills and create your own unique compositions. It's like having a seasoned Tango musician right there with you, guiding your every strum. So, if you've ever felt the urge to infuse your music with the passion of Tango, Tango Guitar Method is the ticket to your musical journey. Plus, the online video access is a fantastic bonus that brings the book to life. Trust me, you won't want to put your guitar down once you start this Tango adventure!
