The Missing Method for Guitar

Note Reading in Crossover Positions

Unlock your musicianship with the power of note reading.

Book four in this series contains two books in one! It’s your step-by-step guide for learning how to read guitar music by combining positions 1 and 5 as well as positions 5 and 9, giving you a complete picture of the fretboard.

Over 200 pages of lessons, exercises, scales, songs, and more!

No other method book covers virtually the entire neck like this one does. Not only do you learn the two crossover positions, but it also contains a full review of the open, fifth, and ninth positions! The first section focuses on connecting positions 1 and 5 together, resulting in the first crossover position. This features all 12 keys, plus their relative, melodic, and harmonic minors. Then the second half of the book connects the 5th and 9th positions, again going through all 12 keys, plus their relative, melodic, and harmonic minors.

What You’ll Learn in Book 4:

  • How to read notes by crossing over the open and fifth positions
  • How to read notes by crossing over the fifth and ninth positions

Also included:

  • Practice changing keys within a song
  • Audio files so you can hear each practice song and exercise

With clear explanations and ample practice exercises, The Missing Method for Guitar Note Reading Series Book 4 gives you everything you need to become fluid in playing across the neck from frets 1-12! Use this book in conjunction with other method books, by itself, with a teacher, or on your own.
