Master Note Reading in the 9th Position

Take your knowledge of the fretboard to new heights! This follow up to Book 2 teaches you how read notes on the guitar from frets 9-13. Explore the rich tones in the part of the neck that many players consider to be the guitar’s sweet spot.

Full Book Description

Remove the guesswork. Know your fretboard. Master reading and playing guitar music in the 9th position.

Many guitar methods touch on note reading in the open position, but that’s where it ends. This leaves most guitarists having to figure out the rest of the fretboard on their own, which can be tedious, time-consuming, and downright frustrating. But not anymore. 

Unlock your musicianship

The Missing Method for Guitar Note Reading Series is designed exclusively to teach you to master your fretboard. And this, the third book in the note reading series, is your guide to mastering note reading in the middle of the neck, the region with some of the richest tones, and the power to take your sound, your skills, and your understanding of guitar music to the next level.

Discover the Power of Note Reading

Like all Missing Method books, when we say “mastery,” we mean it. With ample instructions, illustrations, and practice, when you’ve finished the book, you will know:

How to read notes in the upper region of the neck (Frets 9-13), in every key

How to read in minor keys, including relative minor, melodic, harmonic, and jazz-melodic minors
