Music Principles for the Skeptical Guitarist: Volume Two-The Fretboard

by Bruce Emery
sku: 578-3
Volume 2 of the 3-part series is more of a "how-to" book than the first, which dealt with the principles of music. A presentation of "Volume One in a Nutshell" will give you a feel for whether you are comfortable enough with the concepts in it to move on. Using the same techniques of making common sense connections between concepts, avoiding jargon and using humor, he makes learning very doable. Covers: chord voicings, complex chords, chord shapes, box patterns, quadrads, harmonized melodies, more. Recommended! Spiralbound, 142 pp.
