Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which book should I start with?

A: Hanon is the best book to start with because it introduces you to the shifts, position playing and fingering used in the Guitar Master system.

Q: Must I know how to read music?

A: If you don't read music well, you can follow the fingering contained in all the Guitar Master books to help you out. If you don't read music at all, "Hanon book 1" and "Not for Beginners" both come in Tablature Editions. The "Ultimate Guide to Scales and Arpeggios" includes tablature for the major and minor scales and arpeggios to help you learn the scale form presented throughout the book.

Q: You can play 3 octaves on a guitar?

A: Although most guitarists know there are 3 octaves on a guitar, few know how to play on a 3 octave scale because they lack a systematic approach to moving continuously down the neck of the guitar. Fingering a three octave scale is a very advanced level of play. Guitar Master's 3-octave method teaches the guitarist multiple scale forms that connect to form a fluid 3-octave scale.

Q: How many scale forms are there?

A: There are five major scale forms that are essential to know in order to cover the entire neck of the guitar.

Q: Can I study several forms at a time?

A: It is essential that you learn each form thoroughly before moving on to the next. Study one form at a time. Mastery of each form independently is critical to mastery of the entire guitar.

Q: Should I use a metronome?

A: Absolutely! A metronome.will help you to accurately monitor your progress. If you gradually increase the tempo as your skills develop,. you'll push yourself to higher levels of performance.

Q: How soon will I master the guitar?

A: That depends on you, and a guitarist never stops developing his or her skills as a musician. Guitar Master books grow with you as you develop because you are able to find and take on new challenges in the material with every level of advancement.
