Overview

Too much information? You really can't learn all of the thousands of scales, chords, and song lessons available today. What you need is a way to handle it. "Take Control: For Guitar" gives you a system that lets you make intelligent choices about what to learn, understand how and why it works, and relate it to what you already know. This system shows you how to use music theory to connect scales, chords, songs and riffs together and build a knowledge base to achieve your goals; composing and learning songs, solos, jamming, etc. Most importantly, this system is simple! You can learn it all visually, with pictures (like a lot of pro's do), instead struggling with endless formulas. The total amount you need to learn can be less than 2 pages! You can play almost 1000 chords from 6 forms, and play scales over half the guitar neck in any key with only 2 scale positions! Music theory allows you to connect the dots, build your knowledge base, and take control over what you learn and play. This book contains short, to the point chapters with real world examples from over 30 years of teaching and playing professionally in the New Orleans' area. All audio examples in this book are available as free downloads.
