Master Guitar Chords

For many guitar players, the process of learning chords involves a chord chart or chord dictionary and a lot of memorization. We believe there's a better way. That's why we created The Guitar Chord Master series, dedicated to teaching you chords in a progressive manner while you learn common chord progressions and strum patterns you can use to play the songs you love.

The Guitar Chord Master Series Bundle

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 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.


When we say mastery, we mean it. Each book features enough exercises and sample songs to offer variety and cement your skills.


A BA in Jazz Studies, a Master's Degree in Education, and over 20 years teaching guitar students of all ages means we can stand behind our material 100%.
