     Music is as natural for us as human speech, dance motion. From the very beginning the man expressed his feelings with rhythmical motions and sounds. Some do it with the voice and others help themselves with some device. For the whole history the mankind produced many musical instruments - wind instruments, percussion instruments, stringed instruments - very different in timbre coloring, aesthetically beautiful in form and wonderfully laconic in construction. Among the great diversity of this human works the guitar takes particular place. This is one of the most wide spread musical instruments. It is assumed that the playing musical instruments is the privilege of especially gifted people. But many of us have aptitudes to understand and to repeat sound melodies and rhythms. It is not obligatory to be a Frenchman to speak French. We are born in the sound world and everybody of us is a musician. Some of them show their aptitudes earlier, the others - later. But it is accessible for everybody or almost for everybody. It may be that somebody will be afraid of notes. But as the speech is written by letters, the sounds are kept on the paper by notes.
     Learn to understand music language and countless riches of human soul saved during centuries will be opened to you. (Foreword from the book "Music of your soul" issue 2).
