Guitar From Scratch by Bruce Emery

  • New Condition


A Cordial Introduction For The Budding Guitarist. FROM THE AUTHOR: "Guitar From Scratch is my attempt to go back to the beginning, back to that scratch in the dirt. You know, I have come to believe, truly, that Star War’s George Lucas and I are kindred spirits, and I’m sure he feels the same way. After George Lucas created his trilogy, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, he returned to his own scratch in the dirt with The Phantom Menace. I had originally planned to name this book The Phantom Menace, but settled on Guitar From Scratch in deference to Mr. Lucas. But I digress. This book is all about CHORDS. For now, forget about reading music. Forget about playing single-note leads. And forget about music theory. Focus on the mechanics of PLAYING CHORDS, which is the single most important function of the guitar from “Happy Birthday” to the Beatles, from Nirvana to the Bossa Nova. May the chords be with you."
