This simple and elegant guide to learning (or re-learning) the guitar fingerboard will get it under your fingers for life.

From the back cover:

We don't teach our fingers to play, they teach us. Sure, you may need to think a little when you try a new phrase, but you develop skill by playing it carefully and accurately, again and again.

Using muscle memory, Know Your Guitar: Book One guides players through octaves, the minor pentatonic scale, and the blues scale as building blocks to knowing the fingerboard.

  • Twenty-three step-by-step lessons
  • Exercises in standard notation, with tablature and fingering
  • Simple explanations in plain language
  • Easy-to-read charts.
