Basics

How to hold a guitar correctly and how to tune it. Tablature is explained clearly and the typical beginners problem of reading it the correct way around is addressed.

Musical Pieces

To get straight into playing music, numbers have been added underneath pieces to indicate rhythm (tablature on its own doesn’t indicate this). Later, the rhythmical aspect of notation is covered so you can use it with tablature.

Chords
Open chords; major chords and minor chords (open chords have non-fretted strings within them). An explanation of chord construction. Barre chords and Power chords are also covered.

Techniques

Explaining basic techniques that can be taken for granted by more experienced players. Palm muting and some basic lead guitar techniques are also covered including hammer ons, pull offs, sliding and string bending.

Rhythm

Changing chords and Strum patterns are presented separately at first so you can focus on each individually. They are then brought together from basic to more advanced until there’s a rhythm guitar piece to play.

Theory

Music theory basics explained in terms of the fretboard and reinforced by musical pieces in various styles making the learning process of this guitar method book practical and enjoyable.
