The very first scale most guitarists learn when they begin to explore the world of improvisation is often the Minor Pentatonic Scale, usually it’s A Minor or E Minor form. While this scale has been the crux of much of rock and blues music for the best part of a century, in the modern era of guitar playing it deserves a more thorough exploration through new pentatonic concepts, ideas and insight. Over 10 in-depth lessons, this book will deepen your understanding of pentatonic scales while opening your eyes to a myriad of ways in which they can be used and exploited to build up an arsenal of improvisational tools based on these five-note scales. We’ll also cover the difficult transition from pentatonics to modes through a new method that allows you to retain your pentatonic prowess by intertwining it with the modes instead of abandoning pentatonic scales in favor of other more cumbersome scale systems. In truth, most guitarists have barely scratched the surface when it comes to pentatonic scales, believing the major and minor pentatonic scales to be the end of the story when in fact, it’s just the beginning. So, if you know those five minor/major pentatonic boxes, and want to see how much farther this can go, this book is for you.

Ever since my first guitar teacher introduced me to the music of Allan Holdsworth in the late 90s, it has been an ongoing apprenticeship. I became fascinated, not only with his music, but with his approach to music itself, and the way he thinks about chords, scales and improvisation. Allan’s REH video was a blessing for me as I was able to glean enough insight into his playing to understand the way the great man thinks, and more importantly to begin to apply those concepts to my own playing. I struggled with music theory and orthodox approaches, so when Allan’s beautifully simple way of thinking about chords and scales clicked for me, I knew I had found something that finally made sense. I must admit, I couldn’t play you a single Allan Holdsworth lick, and I wouldn’t want to as the thought of dissecting his music in that way was always unappealing to me. What I wanted to do was get inside his head, grasp his way of thinking about music, and find out exactly how he was able to come up with such intricate yet outrageous lines and compositions. And that is precisely what this book is about. Allan’s playing looks incredibly complicated, and then some, to the innocent bystander, but the approach behind it is incredibly simple and easy to grasp. It’s so straightforward in fact that most players who have attempted to describe what he does completely miss the point. Once you do understand his approach, however, you’ll have a new appreciation for how far he’s taken it, and how far it can go. This book is not for the faint-hearted, but you shouldn’t be put off by thinking that you’ll be getting to grips with a lot of tricky concepts, because you won’t; Allan’s way of thinking is almost childlike in its simplicity, and when you glimpse it I can assure you that you'll be intrigued.

Tune your B and E strings up to C and F respectively and you're in all fourths tuning. The first time I did this it was truly a revelation to me to have a symmetrical fretboard and get rid of that major third 'bump' from the G to B string in standard tuning. Everything suddenly became far more manageable and logical, and I began to experience a freedom on the fretboard that I'd never quite found in standard tuning. To be honest, there isn't much in the way of material for fourths tuning on guitar, so I decided to write a chords and inversions book for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge of chords in fourths tuning, or to help with the transition from standard to fourths tuning. There are over 30 types of chords and inversions in this book, including open chords, closed and spread voiced triads, plus virtually every other type of chord and inversion you'll need to play anything from rock to jazz. You'll find a logical progression of chord types as well as easy-to-read chord diagrams which present the most essential and usable chords in all fourths tuning on guitar.

Previously the Intermediate Book, 'Scales and Arpeggios' has been painstakingly updated and revised in order to build on the '2 Position Guitar Scale System: An Introduction' Book (also available on Amazon Kindle) by expanding the reach of the 2 Position System to include how to change between scales, open position scales, how to stack the positions to form larger ones, and a new section which incorporates arpeggios into the system.The premise of this system has always been to focus on the musical aspect of scales, and now arpeggios, instead of the endless memorization of patterns and permutations you get with other systems such the CAGED and 3NPS ones, which means there's far too much time wasted before they become useful. Don't get me wrong, this is not a book of shortcuts. You'll still have to put the work in to get good results, but know that we've reduced that amount of 'work', or 'woodshedding' by about 80%.What you'll get from this system is a profound insight into how the guitar, in standard tuning, can be understood to effortlessly learn the tools for confident improvisation: scales and arpeggios.

Have you ever seen those guitarists that sound like they know exactly what they’re doing when they’re improvising? They just seem to hit all the right notes while their playing sounds crisp and melodic, as if they’d planned it all out beforehand, or were born with a God-given sense of melody. I’d always wondered how on earth they were able to come up with such melodic and flowing lines, thinking that they must simply be gifted, or have done some serious woodshedding. Then, during one unforgettable class at music college the door was opened to a method for playing and thinking as melodically and as effortlessly as they did, and this is what I want to share with you in this eBook.
