Only once I found Desi's book and his free podcasts did it all "click" so I could begin to play. I'm not performing yet, but for the very first time, I understand the full "landscape" of the guitar, why I'm learning scales, why a chord is what it is, how all the pieces fit together.
Words can't describe how grateful I am for this book. I hope it brings you similar joy. (And if, like me, you prefer to "understand" what you're doing, I'm sure it will.)
I've played guitar, on and off, all my life for personal enjoyment. Took some lessons when I was a teen a long time ago. Late in life, I decided to take lessons again, and at first I just took songs to my teacher to learn how to play them. But then I discovered that after playing them 70 or 80 times -- in order to play them really well -- I would tire of them. So, I was constantly learning something new and forgetting what I learned before. I discussed this with my teacher and he recommended learning theory, then I could play anything. He's been teaching that, along with fun stuff to play, but I got this book as an additional guide. It's a lot more than that. Everything you need is here. It's really thorough. And done right. I find that I can open it to almost any page and just focus on that page, or maybe two pages, and learn something valuable, or reinforce something my teacher has taught me, or see how it relates to other things I've learned. Now, I play lead guitar to blues and jazz backing tracks, or I join the band as a guitarist on a favorite song, just to see how I can fit in. I find this a lot more fun. And soon I realized that music isn't that hard for the enthusiast, as it's just simple math with everything repeating over and over. Just get the basic patterns down and you can use them all over the fretboard.
I've got a ways to go yet, but this is an excellent exercise for the older brain. Should have done it a long, long time ago. Takes some effort to get over the hump, but it's so worth it, and this book really helps!
I haven't used the online resource yet... that's just one more feature. You can hear the examples, and the author also relates the keys, and chord progressions, and modes, etc -- to a lot of popular songs you'll know, so you can hear real-life examples. A really good book for the guitarist who wants to understand the structure of guitar music and then apply it all over the fretboard.
A really practical feature is that once you learn how it works, you can easily change keys. I have some favorite keys, so if I find something I Like in A flat that I want to change to A or B or E, no problem. If I find something in F#m and I want to change to A minor of E minor, no problem. Much smarter way to approach guitar.
I knew I had to get past there. I knew doors needed to be opened in my understanding. Needed the keys. Desi Serna has the keys in this book.
If you love the instrument as much as I do, don't rip yourself off. Get the book.
I bought this book to learn theory and so far the exercises have been great. Although it does not focus on reading music a lot of the exercises have the music cleff (I think its called)along with the tablature.
Its nice to actually know what chords are made of and how you get those happy chords (major) and your sad chords (minor) in addition to all the types of chords. I am also learning the basics of scales. The list is endless. This book will start you with very simple basic exercises to learn the theory. Once you master those you will see that they will get more and more complex. I do not have any thing bad to say about its content. So far I love it.
