Overview

 Welcome to The "Next Stage" Guitar Book!  This guitar book contains a simple learning method that will help you master the skill of playing basic musical scales quickly and easily without having to learn anything about music theory if you don't want too.  Most of the scales presented are MAJOR SCALES, the familiar DO-RE-ME-FA-SOL-LA-TI-DO that most of us have heard since childhood.  The last half of the book will introduce you to the PENTATONIC SCALES (Major & Minor) and everyone's favorite - "THE BLUES SCALE".

The mateial presented is designed so you will not be overwhelmed with more scales and information than you need to know at this early stage of your musical development.  The material will be presented in three parts;  PART I will cover single octave MAJOR SCALES.  PART II will expand on PART I to cover double octave MAJOR SCALES.  PART III will introduce you to the PENTATONIC and BLUES SCALE.

Each new scale is presented along with an accompanying (1) "SCALE PATH" diagram, (2) "STANDARD MUSIC NOTATION" and (3) "TABLATURE" for that particular scale.  If you like, you may record the scales you are learning and play them back periodically to monitor your progress.

You will discover that by playing and memorizing these scales, you are preparing yourself for more advance scales and musical concepts.  Knowledge is power, and once you unlock the "secret" to playing scales, you can create your own phrasings and melodic patterns.  You will find much more than described above in this new guitar book!
On another note, you might also want to get a copy of The "First Stage" Guitar Book - Learn How To Play Guitar Easily & Quickly!, you will find this book very helpful in learning guitar chords in clear, bold and easy to understand illustrations plus more.  Also there is a handy quick reference chord chart that you might want to include in your "how to play guitar" reference case called The "First Stage" Guitar Chord Chart - Learn How To Play The Most Commonly Played Guitar Chords!

    The "1" Guitar Book

    I find this book The "Next Stage" Guitar Book easy to read and understand. Most of all the patterns in this book are moveable and has made my lead guitar playing more exciting. Also we have found out that these patterns can also be used on the bass guitar as well.

    Picks Up Where The 'First Stage' Book Left Off

    This book continues to present the need to know, nuts and bolts information that's necessary to play the guitar. This second book builds on the first by introducing the reader to scales and how to play the scales from many different positions on the fretboard. There's enough info in this book to keep a person busy for a long, long time, but again it's given in an easy to comprehend format that seeks not to confuse, but to provide a practical, down to earth guide to making some music with your guitar. Don't miss out on this unique book.
