    I Also Recommend:

    Fretboard Knowledge for the Contemporary Guitarist is an excellent reference for learning chords and chord patterns.

    This book covers much information and may be a bit overwhelming if you've only played for a few months. Covered are the pentatonic scale, modes, minor scales, repetitive and harmonic scale forms, chords and arpeggios. There is a nice, brief conclusion and review summary at the end of each chapter summarizing the jist of what the chapter is all about and what you should take away from reading it. A very good reference book for finding your way around the fretboard, though probably not for early beginners. This is a great book for more experienced guitarists who want to learn the difference between F Ionian and F Lydian modes or what exactly they are doing when they are playing in "the box".

    Great book!

    This book when i first got it was very confusing just even looking at it but after reading and trying to understand this book it turned out to very helpful and worth the money. It teaches techniques to memorize the fretboard and scale patterns, chord patterns and doesn't go a whole lot into theory but explains the fretboard quite well. I definitely recommend this book.
