If you want to learn guitar and understand how music works then this is the book for you. You will be astonished at how much you will learn. This book is designed to give you all the knowledge that you need to become the guitarist of your dreams. Written by a very succesful guitar tutor of 30 years experience.
I started playing guitar at 10 years old, when I started a new school. I was asked if I would like to join the music class and I went for it like a shot because my Dad played guitar along with about a million other instruments. By the time I had left school I had fell head over heels in love with the guitar; it was an obsession. I played with other musicians, but none of us were any great shakes at it, I did busking and the odd pub gig. I learned other instruments, got into fiddle music and jazz, I’ve lived all over the country and I learned a great deal about music from a great variety of people in the industry. My very good friend Jimmy Russell from Manchester taught me what I am about to teach you. It all opened up for me then.
I’ve had plenty of opportunity to make a career out of guitar, but for me it’s a hobby; not a job. I don’t want to spend all day in the back of a van and all evening in a dressing room waiting to go on. So I teach guitar and that’s what I have been doing with my time for the past 30 years, teaching guitar one on one.
Everyone I have taught has become very good with the guitar and they make wonderful music. None of them need to buy sheet music because they can all listen to a piece of music and work it out themselves. Many of them realised that once you have learned guitar you have learned how to play many instruments. They were all astounded at how fast they learned and how accomplished they became.
When you have acquired all the knowledge that this book contains you will be able to pick up any musical instrument and play it in no time at all. This book teaches you everything you need to know in order to become the greatest guitarist you can be, whatever style of guitar you may wish to specialise in, but the knowledge also applies to any instrument, after all they all use the same rules and principles.
So, enjoy this book. Remember though, the standard of guitarist you are about to become depends entirely on the amount of dedication and self-discipline you apply in the next month. Practice what you are about to read until you can play it without thinking. It won’t take long.
A good carpenter makes really nice furniture, but he first needs to acquire the tools and the ability to use them. No carpenter would get anywhere if he didn’t know how to use a saw, or use a hammer.
This book is your toolbox. Everything that this book covers is important. You need to know all of it if you want to become the guitar player that you dream of being.
