In the first Scratch book, there is a smattering of theory here and there, but first things first. This is where you’ll learn to finger the most common simple chords and to switch back and forth between them in a timely fashion. Along the way, it might be nice to see which chords group together in different keys and how to strum and fingerpick these chords using examples from popular music.
In the Sequel, we’ll look at some guitar vernacular (or common speech), work our way toward incorporating single-note playing into chord playing and then examine techniques for playing single note lines and melodies by themselves, touching on Major Scales and improvising on Pentatonic Scales. Then we’ll devote some time to learning to read Standard Music Notation for the guitar. It is the universal language of music and even guitarists can benefit from identifying and tracking down notes from the Musical Alphabet on the fretboard. Besides, you won’t find a more painless approach than the one I’ve got worked out.
There is not a guitar student on earth who doesn’t want to learn some BLUES. The fourth book starts you off in grand style, with easy licks you can play whether you want to sing or not. For the electric blues player, we go on a tour of the fretboard in search of the best pockets of notes for improvising. And you can also try your hand at playing slide guitar.
