Not only does it teach you how to play (chords, TABs, notes), but it gives you all the vital information every new guitar player should know, from taking care of your instrument to understanding amps, strings and effect pedals, to learning the basics of playing in different styles of music. It’s over 170 pages of lessons, information, advice, exercises, practice songs, and more!

For the price of a single guitar lesson, you’ll get everything most guitar teachers will teach you in your first couple years of lessons!

the missing method Difference


The Missing Method books were born out of the need for guitar method books that simply didn't exist. We don't replicate what is already working well. We strive to create something new to help you become a better guitar player.


Each book is focused on a particular aspect of guitar playing or technique, so we can go into depth about each subject. When you get a Missing Method brand book, odds are you're going to get even more than you hoped for.

Professional Expertise

A BA in Jazz Studies, a Master's Degree in Education, and over 15 years teaching guitar students of all ages means we can stand behind our material 100%.

Step-By-Step Instruction

Each book is designed progressively to take you through each lesson a step at a time. Whether you decide to use our books with an instructor or go it alone, you we've got you covered.

Ample Practice

When you're learning anything new, the best way to cement the knowledge is with thorough practice. You'll find this in each of the books we create, along with frequent review.

Personal Touch

We're not a giant corporation. We're a married couple, doing what we love. When you buy our books, you support a small business, and when you offer suggestions, we listen. Please keep in touch. We want to hear from you.
