For aspiring players of all levels, Joined in Harmony is a collection of 21 innovative duet arrangements designed to spice up your playing style. Most of the duets are orchestrated so each player has a chance to play both melody and harmony. Sue’s arrangements present various ways to harmonize, some surprising pairings of tunings, an intricate blending of voices, and an assortment of different keys—D, G, A, Dm, Em, and Am. The duets are arranged for fingerpicking or flatpicking and some strumming.
Sue provides practice and playing tips, exercises to improve your technical skills, and tablature/notational information.
The companion CD has sound files for each duet and its individual parts formatted in MIDI, MP3, and TEF. TEFview is a free download enabling you to open tablature files created in TablEdit. Using the TEF files, you can listen and play along while watching the computer cursor move through the tab in sync with the metronome that you can adjust to set the playback tempo. In the book, Sue gives basic instructions on how to use TEFview.
