Book One – Complete Technique for Modern Guitar

This book destroys the notion that aspiring players must spend all their practice time accelerating through progressively more difficult and obscure exercises. This book focuses on only the exercises that most quickly develop the fundamental four areas of guitar technique: Picking, Legato, Playing in time, and Expression.

It contains over 200 essential, digestible, exercises to help you master the guitar with comprehensive coverage of picking, legato, rhythm and expressive techniques.

Book Two – The Practical Guide to Modern Music Theory for Guitarists

This is a complete and practical music theory course for guitarists that takes you on a journey starting from simple major scale construction, its 3 and 4 note harmonisations, and common chord sequences, to a massively deep and structured dissection of all the modes of the major scale.

The seven modes are broken down into their constituent intervals, triads, arpeggios and Pentatonic scales, with each theoretical approach discussed and analysed and bought to life with over 200 notated examples, licks and professional backing tracks.

After the many soloing possibilities are discussed for each mode, the author’s favourite sounds are given as a concise list of recommended approaches. This will save you many hours of practice time, and provide solid starting point to explore the best of each tonality.

Book Three – Guitar Scales in Context

This book goes further than any other scale dictionary available: it provides you with backing tracks and licks for every one of the essential eighteen scales and modes that it covers.

With over fifty backing tracks included, each scale is analysed, discussed and shown in the five most commonly used patterns. Each scale shape is given with a corresponding chord, triad and arpeggio pattern to help you build and memorise the scale, both physically and aurally.

Hundreds of Reviews for each Book include:
  • This book brings together theory, technique and scales in one source. It's a lot of material but can be taken one step at a time. I especially like the examples he gives for each scale and concept.
  • On the whole, this compilation was what I'd hoped it would be - theory that didn't get so technical that it got in its own way, tips for improving one's technique that make sense and look like they will will actually work, and coverage of the scale patterns I am most interested in.
  • I must say this book really really helpful for someone looking to get theory technique and scales. Joseph did a great job making a complicated subject fun and easy to work through.
