Apr 19, gekko rated it really liked it. Probably the most meaningful praise I can give for this excellent book is to say that it's a book I wish I could somehow transport back in time and put on the shelf of my early teenage self.
Speaking of lessons, Guthrie Govan comes across as an extremely humble, down-to-earth character -- the kind of guy who would be an inspirational teacher. His style is very conversational, and he dispenses many nuggets of wisdom and guitar lore without ever giving the impression that he's coming from some inaccessible higher-plane of understanding.
This is quite remarkable, since even a casual listen to his guitar playing starting with the practice tracks on the CD included with the book reveals that he IS in fact on such a higher-plane. I've marked this one as "read" since I've finished reading it from cover-to-cover, but the exercises and ideas will be on my "currently-practising" list for a long time to come.
Nov 01, Michail Almyros rated it liked it. A great book but not for beginners. The book is packed with advice and suggestions that I wish I knew when i was younger but as a self taught guitar player I was struggling with some of the chapters and I couldn't follow them.
In general it helped me learn a lot on understanding some of the theory and how to treat my hands and calluses, Scale positions, Arpeggio shapes and modes. I also got a better understanding of some of the theory and why we see certain things in a score. I am definitely getti A great book but not for beginners.
I am definitely getting the second book as well but I have to revise this book a few times. Sep 05, Deepak Yadav rated it it was amazing. This is good for beginners. Dec 10, Jordan Ferreira rated it it was amazing. Guthrie Govan is not only a musical genius but also an unusually gifted teacher. It's rare that you find a guitarist not only great at their craft but equally as capable as an instructor.
As a guitarist, I've run across many instructional home videos and books about how to elevate guitar playing skills. Many of these are penned by accomplished guitarists and their name alone is supposed to push the credibility of the product. However, just because there is an amazing guitarist doesn't mean they know their stuff. Guthrie Govan not only knows how to play the guitar, not only d It's rare that you find a guitarist not only great at their craft but equally as capable as an instructor.
Guthrie Govan not only knows how to play the guitar, not only does he know his music theory, but he knows how to relay this information in an understandable way. This book is structured in a way that any new guitarist can hit the ground running. If you're a seasoned guitarist you can also get into this book to further understand chord language, music theory, and other technical information that will help you become competitive in the saturated market of flashy guitarists.
Yes, it's important that you become competent on the neck of your guitar. But it's also important to know how to speak to other musicians. Guthrie Govan is one of the best teachers I've come across in the field of music instruction. Jun 06, Marcel Monpatron rated it it was amazing. This is not a book just for beginners, it's a volume dripping with Guthrie Govan's knowledge of each and detail of the act of playing the instrument, his humour and infectious enthusiasm for music and guitar playing tangible during the whole read.
Definitively worth a check. You know what? In fact, if I get my hands on a time travel device, I'm bringing this book to my younger self. Dec 19, Sam Wright rated it it was amazing. One of the best guitar books I have ever went through. I continually revise this book. Guthrie is an excellent educator, guitar player and inspiration.
Mar 31, Sanjeev Rao rated it it was amazing. Like anything Guthrie, this book is terrific. Covers a breadth of topics in a super concise, clear manner. The only thing you'll wish after having finished is to have gotten hold of it right in your beginner days. Mar 24, Spiros rated it it was amazing. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
