Summary

It took me years before I understood the basics of guitar!

I could play and read tabs - but I didn't really understand what I was doing.

It doesn't have to take you that long!

You can learn the basics here in just a few minutes! 

This book is here to make things simple! I'm going to break things down and make it so simple, that you’ll understand the basics of guitar theory from day one!

How can this book do that?

I'm sure you've heard people say: “If you want to be a real musician, you have to learn theory.”

Well....

Wrong!

You don't need to know all the theory in the world - you just need to know some very basic fundamentals!

This book cuts out all the garbage and gives you a simplified, streamlined reference guide to everything you need to know to play about 90 percent of the most popular songs of all time!

How much do I need to memorize?

As much or as little as you need! 

I know you have commitments, I get it - that's why I wrote this simple reference guide.

This book has been designed with just the basics in mind, and you can turn to it any time for reference.

(I've even included blank charts at the back so you can print off and write your own favourite chords down!)

It doesn’t matter if you just started school, or are in your mid retirement years! 

In Essential Chords and Scales, you’ll discover:

A brief introduction to music theory

The top secret guitar hack that will have you playing like a pro in no time!

The essential chords that will help you play all your favourite songs.

The most popular and essential scales and modes.

Pentatonics, chromatics, jazz scales....

And much more.

Most people buy a guitar and just look up their favorite song charts to learn to play songs, but have no idea how or why to play the chords as shown.

You can get ahead so much faster if you learn a few basic fundamentals to carry you through 90 percent of musical situations!

It really is that easy and simple!

If you want to improve faster with a bullet proof reference guide and simple-to-understand music theory tutorial so you can impress your friends and family with your guitar skills, then scroll up, and click the “buy” button right now.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic!

Nick has a super way of making you feel relaxed and at ease. We all learn at different speeds, and with NIck's help, I've been able to not only memorize my favourites but also gain some confidence with my guitar playing. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Nick play as well, as this helped me to see if I was doing it correctly too. Loved this! Thank you... this is now my guitar "go-to" :)

Great for impressing chicks

I'll be honest, all I ever wanted to do with the guitar is pick up girls. I want the groupies without having to be in a band. So I try to impress them with my mad shredding skills... and it's not working.

All kidding aside, this is a really useful practice tool because it supplements any theory or tabs that you're learning.

It really cuts through the noise (no pun intended) and gives you a handy reference guide to the essential chords for playing popular songs.

Very Helpful

I have always liked the idea of playing the guitar but I easily gave up in my first lesson because it was too tricky and no real progress was being made. I found this book to be very helpful because of how easy it is to follow and the narrator managed to play his guitar in the audiobook which gave me a good indicator to whether I was playing along correctly. So if you are looking to learn to play your favourite songs on a guitar with little to no experience, give this a listen because it is certainly useful!
