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.

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!

For someone who has flailed around for a few years coming and going from the guitar this book was a godsend. Reignited my enthusiasm for the guitar by introducing an understanding of what I was playing as opposed to copying other guitarists on you tube. A worthy purchase. Thank you Erich

I've been playing guitar for some years now. Every now and then I like to pick up some instructional material, just to see how the educational guitar market is going, even if it is tailored towards beginners. I'm not a beginner and I did not need this book. But isn't it good just to check stuff out and put in your two cents? I have checked out everything from the 80's hot licks videos, to Jam Play, I even checked out Troy Grady's cracking the code, a series devoted to picking mechanics.

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.

This book didn't really meet my expectations..Its a written explanation on the principles of playing guitar and strumming with no real exercises to challenge your progress. I definetely wouldn't recommend it to the beginner as it assumes you can already play and need progressive instruction. Not all bad though, it does contain some valuable points.

So I reached the ripe old age of 43 and I thought to myself, 'You know what? You never did learn guitar. Sort it out!'

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.

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.
