If you are a guitar-player frustrated by lack of progress, a beginner or student, or have even given up, this short (82-page) manual is for you.Based on the simple premise that if a chord is, say, Gm7b9 you will want to know where notes G, 7 and b9 are as well as what constitutes a minor chord, the author's noteboard approach comprehensively covers both theory and practical, self-reliance driven, guidelines - formatted for both LEFT-HANDERS and RIGHT-HANDERS - that can revolutionize your relationship with the guitar, with a 5-section, 18-chapter layout covering everything that can help you become a confident, innovative player.Contents include section I - notation: 1 note fundamentals, 2 from root note to numbered noteboard, European equivalents and music stave conventions; section II - scales: 3 fundamentals and the major scale, 4 relative minor and other common scales, 5 modes, 6 concepts for using scales; section III - chords: 7 fundamentals of structure and quality, 8 playing chords, 9 building more complex chords, 10 harmonizing scales as chords, 11 playing harmonized chords, 12 identifying the key from chords or melody; section IV - chord progressions: 13 cycle of fifths and fourths, 14 common progression types, 15 substitutions, 16 intros, turnarounds and endings; section V - alternative tunings: 17 for guitar, 18 other stringed instruments. And also includes cut-out guitar-bag items of cycle of fifths and fourths and crib card plus blank forms for working out other scales' harmonization and for identifying keys for your compositions.The author has been playing guitar for over 50 years, having been inspired (like so many others) by The Shadows from as far back as 1960.

After thirty years of international travel in sales, he discovered the joys of making guitars at a school in Totnes, Devon and set out on a second career as a Luthier. Later, after relocating to Spain in search of warmer climes, he fell into teaching English while figuring out how to restart his business in a new country and learn a new language at the same time. Needless to say, out of practical necessity, teaching then overtook making guitars! After spells in New Zealand, back in Spain, and then again the United States, he returned to London, where he continues today as a language and business trainer. He has never stopped repairing guitars and plans to resume making them but most of all continues playing and learning new things every day!
