If you are looking for a book that teaches you how to read notations and treble clefs, this is not your book. If you want to understand everything there is to know about keys, modes, and signatures - this book is not what you are looking for. If you want to pick up the guitar for the first time and be ready to join a band by the weekend - wrong choice. But if you want to read a book that will teach you how to make chords, how to find and remember every note on the neck, how to play every chord a bunch of different ways, how to read tablature, and how to figure out and write guitar solos, this is definitely what you are looking for!!! No tricks, no gimmicks. This is a concise and to the point recap of everything I have learned over the past 16 years. Like anything, you will get what you put into it. But I can PROMISE you, if you read my book and follow the instructions, YOU WILL LEARN FASTER THAN YOU EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE!
