The Missing Method for Guitar Book 2

Know your fretboard. Remove the guesswork. Read beyond the open position!

Continue to conquer your note reading fears and achieve a new level of mastery over your instrument!

Book two in this series is your step-by-step guide for learning how to read guitar music from frets 5-9. Even if you’ve had some experience in the past, The Missing Method for Guitar Book 2 digs into the most popular region of the guitar neck, taking your skills and understanding of reading guitar music to the next level.

This region of the neck is where most professional players love to play. And now it’s your turn!

Why Learn this Region of the Fretboard?

  • It expands your range of possible notes, not just for reading, but for creating your own music.
  • Gives you more control and flexibility over your instrument.
  • Gives you more options for playing melodies, chords, and solos!
  • Develops your overall musicianship
  • Helps you acquire the skills you need to become an independent player, making it easier for you to teach yourself how to play all sorts of music.

It’s Unique!

No other guitar book series teaches you exclusively how to read music. All other method books just give you the bare basics. This book focuses on learning to read standard guitar notation in the middle region of the neck, and like Missing Method Book 1, includes tons of practice songs, examples, explanations, and exercises!

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to read notes in the middle of the neck (Frets 5-9) with a step-by-step approach
  • How to count and read triplet rhythms
  • Tips for memorization!
  • How to read in Compound Time
  • Reading in minor keys, including relative minor, melodic, harmonic, and jazz-melodic minors
  • The Circle of Fifths and how it’s used

Also included: A review of open position!

With clear explanations and ample practice exercises, The Missing Method for Guitar™ Note Reading Series Book 2 gives you everything you need to become fluid in playing beyond the open position!

Use this book in conjunction with other method books, by itself, with a teacher, or on your own.
