Product description

About the Author

Erich started playing guitar at age 14 on a VERY "affordable" nylon-string student guitar. He started off playing by ear, but then started taking one-on-one lessons with teachers throughout his hometown. Entering college as a classical guitar major, Erich changed his major 3 years later to music business when he moved to Nashville Tennessee and attended Belmont University. Erich started teaching in high school and throughout college because of his love of the instrument and his passion for helping people. Throughout nearly 3 decades of teaching and study, he has discovered and simplified methods for mastering technique and theory from the perspective of the learning student, NOT from the perspective of the frustrated teacher. Erich has taught millions of players around the world that once thought they were unteachable. He still teaches one-on-one lessons, writes books about music, loves to travel, do yoga, enjoys the outdoors and is a big supporter of ASPCA and animal welfare.

Just awful, even for instructional material aimed at the complete beginner. The author Erich Andreas only published this crap to promote his online presence with his YouTube channel Your Guitar Sage. I'm not against free online lessons. But from what I've personally seen on his channel, you're better off investing your focus with Justin Sandercoe or Carl Brown.

Sorry to mention his YouTube channel, but that's all this book is designed to do, make you aware of his online presence, while showing you stuff you can find out for free. Stuff like chord charts for example. There is a bizarre section on strumming patterns. Most teachers will invest time in showing their students rhythm blocks, so they can figure out any strumming pattern by ear, you know eighth note strumming, sixteenth note strumming all that good stuff. But here we are forced to remember dozens of random strumming patterns, which serve no purpose to actual working music. A kid with a guitar is better off being really well versed in rhythm block training like I mentioned earlier, instead of thinking: "Does this, down, down, up, down, up pattern work for this song?" It takes too long, it's impossible, it's not musically applicable at all!!!

The book demonstrates a couple of pentatonic scales. Again stuff you can find EVERYWHERE for free. On page 86 I thought the content may finally start to get better. Here the author demonstrates, what notes are on the lines and spaces on a musical staff in guitar sheet music. Ah, a bit of sight reading exercises then? Nope! The next few pages demonstrate basic fret board roadmaps, where notes are laid out on fret board diagrams similar to tab, but no basic sight reading exercises even in a simple context. You showed us the musical staff, but no how to use it!

I have signed up to Erich's online course (which is simply incredible by the way) and this book is an excellent accompaniment to that course. Erich's teaching method is simple and breaks everything down into small simple steps that enable you to see very quick results. I would recommend this book (and the online course) to anyone wanting o play the guitar, from complete beginners who have never even picked up a guitar (like myself) to intermediate players who are open to learning new tips and guitar playing techniques to help them polish their existing skills.

At last a book that can advance my 'limited' knowledge of the guitar and take me beyond just 'plodding along' into actually mastering the instrument. I recommend this book to all struggling with the mysteries of the guitar, go buy it.

Many thanks Erich, so glad I found you. Keep up the good work Erich!

Erich's youtube video's have really helped my guitar play over the last two years. He's taken me from being a novice to being, well, a slightly better novice for which I am very, very grateful. He's certainly one of the best teachers to watch on the internet.

This book will help beginners and intermediate players alike and will take you through your first baby steps of guitar mastery starting with things like what guitar to buy, how to hold it, which bits you strum etc. all the way through to learning the advanced theory and techniques that will progress your guitar playing to new levels.

If you've always wanted to play the guitar, this ebook is a fantastic choice, this coupled with his youtube video's (which are linked to at various points throughout the ebook) will really set you in the right direction.

Great ebook Erich, I'm already looking forward to spending many hours working through the new content.

Thanks for all you've done for my guitar playing, you're a legend. And so's your cat.
