In the Sequel, you'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. This book also covers 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.

These books offer a steady flow of information, rather than the Hit-and-Run School of Thought. No gaps, no loose spots, no quantum leaps. The pages have been designed to be inviting to the eye, and not clogged with information. Paragraphs are short and the margins are contoured so that the eye is swept along from line to line. Thoughts and sentences never spill over onto the next page. Instead of relying on Standard Music Notation, these great books emphasize the language of the guitar itself, Fretboard Diagrams: simply pictures of which strings to hold down at which frets. Both Tablature and Standard Notation are presented when they are useful. Also included are straightforward educational activities along with easy-to-read graphics. These books lie flat when you place them on a table or music stand.

I'm Michael from Cascio's Sheet Music department, and have been playing guitar for 35 years. This sequel to first Guitar From Scratch book follows the same light-hearted but incredibly informative approach, and focuses on how to truly become not just a guitarist, but a musician. I often recommend this for players who know their basics but want to understand how to use their skills to create music and/or to approach their favorite songs and styles at the next level.
