Full Book Description

We made it easy for you to learn to read music.

While you can become a skilled guitarist without it, learning to read music will undeniably make you a more skilled and competent musician. And it will open doors to musical resources and opportunities that would remain closed otherwise. The trouble is, there didn’t used to be a method dedicated solely to note reading for guitar, written with the average player in mind. Until now…

The Missing Method makes it easy for you to learn note reading.

Each book in the The Missing Method Note Reading series focuses on one section of the fretboard. This first book in the series focuses on the top of the neck, frets 0-4.

What makes it easy?

  • Clear instructions: teach yourself or use in guitar lessons
  • Progressive exercises: each new skill builds on the last
  • Ample practice and review: master each skill before moving on

  • Anyone looking to play classical, jazz, or soloing (but it’s useful for all genres & styles!)
