About the Author

Gareth started learning guitar at age 8 and by age 10 was playing guitar in the orchestral pit with the teachers for school plays playing guitar chords like Dom 9th, diminished and major 7th. At age 13 he achieved grade 5 classical guitar with honours. Later on Distinction at higher diploma level from the Academy of Contemporary music, grade 8 Electric guitar (RGT), grade 8 Electric guitar (RSL), grade 8 Contemporary Music Theory (LCM) and grade 8 Bass Guitar (RSL). He has his own guitar tuition practice where many of his students keep coming for years.

Understanding the needs of his students 1-1 helps decide what content to write in his Guitar Books. He decided there where ways things could be done differently, such as his “Guitar for Kids” book that doesn’t focus on sight-reading and uses mostly guitar tablature (like most guitar method books do) or “Chords for Guitar” rather than giving you 1000’s of guitar chords, gives you shapes for various chord types that you can move up and down the fret-board.
