Many thanks Erich, so glad I found you. Keep up the good work Erich!
I wanted to check out this book because Erich Andreas the author, has quite a big presence on YouTube with channel Your Guitar Sage. I'm not here to talk about his channel. I saw some videos, again tailored towards the beginner player, you may find this helpful, if so be sure to check it out. But this book is terrible! It is more of a motivational book if anything. He writes endearing passages about why you should be motivated to practice, why you should work hard to achieve your goals. Come on Erich mate, you're charging people for this. Do you sleep well at night?
It has some basic chord charts. But you can find that stuff on line for free. Or go to your local guitar store, they'll help you. But Erich Andreas will charge you for information which is readily available for free. There is no basic music notation. Some players will be interested in site reading Erich. Can you site read Erich? You sure as hell can't write educational material that's for sure! There are no scales in this book. There is no mention of how you can used the CAGED system, so that you can know lots of chords. For example being able to play a G major using an E shape, or a D minor 7 built from a G shape. You wont get far with this book.Read more ›
Then I bought a vintage Encore strat and cheapo amp and decided to get going. What struck me straight away was that the advice I was given to play right handed (despite being left handed) was either total poppycock or the guitar was broken. Turns out that playing the instrument is singularly difficult and most people pack in not long after starting. I'm not a quitter, but I'm not especially musical, either, so I needed some inspiration.
After a brief google I happened across Erich on youtube and was impressed with his stance that anyone can be great. He points out in the pages of this book that very opinion. Was Hendrix a 4 year old ready born axe-god? No. He had shed loads of practice hours before he got to be legendary. Am I ever going to be that good? Unlikely. Too many other commitments. However, as it stands, I am as good as Jimmy once was. And I can only go forward from there!
I subbed Erich on YT and began to receive a steady stream of advice on email. This was followed this week by the notice from him that this book was now free to download on Kindle. I have a 3G Kindle keyboard and also a Kindle Fire HD so I would be a bit of a div not to download.
Erich re-itterates constantly the need for perseverance and practice. I'm nowhere near ready to begin even stringing notes together, but the first few chapters have me learning to strum and build strength / dexterity around the fretboard. This seems a little slow paced, but even in the couple of days I've been at it, I can report that my skill is improving.
If I were to suggest an improvement (and that's why we are all here, right?) it would be to milestone test us.Read more ›
