Creative Acoustic Guitar Accompaniment Loops, or CAGAL, is designed to provide music therapists and educators with creative guitar skills to use in their work with children, teens and adults. CAGAL brings together contemporary guitar skills to offer a practical yet colorful palette of harmonic and rhythmic qualities to guitar play. Through the use of repetitive progressions, or "loops," the therapist or educators can provide accompaniment for improvisation, song-writing, movement, singing, and other applications. CAGAL can also be used to enhance musical skill develpment in the able performer. The CAGAL book provides detailed information on each loop. The DVD allows you to observe and play along with each chord, strum, and loop in real time.
