Chapters of the Book – This is what you get

Introduction to Scales and Arpeggios…for the Aspiring Guitar Player

Getting Started

It is highly suggested that you go through the entire book first. Have a quick look and scan and see what pops out at you.

A second suggestion that is highly recommended is for you to have a piece of paper and a pencil, a metronome and your guitar in a quiet space.


In a day there are 71 time periods. 14 minutes and some odd seconds. This means that there are 71 (14 minute time periods in your day.) Surely you can find time to work on something you love doing. The harder you work the more fun you will have and the greater the reward will be.
