Volume One of the Creative Guitarist book series establishes a foundation of guitar fundamentals for beginner guitarists by applying various playing techniques (fingerstyle, rhythm, and soloing) to various styles of music. Music theory essentials (songwriting, improvisation, etc.) are also featured, which will help aspiring guitarists become more self-sufficient in teaching themselves, communicating with other musicians, and in writing their own music.
