Guitar From Scratch, the Sequel

Guitar From Scratch, the Sequel

Guitar From Scratch, the Sequel

by Bruce Emery

The newest book by Emery is filled with his trademark humor and clear explanations. While "Guitar From Scratch" was all about chords, this follows a general progression from chord-based information to single-string playing, culminating in a crash course in reading notes. Beginning with "Stupid Chord Tricks" (the slang of the guitar), then to passing chords, shape-shifting and, finally, single note lines. Reading music is taught with as little pain as possible. Companion sound clips available online. Spiralbound, 86 pp.
