Complete your knowledge of the fretboard with The Missing Method Book 5.

It’s Unique!

No other method book teaches you how to read guitar music in the upper register. It’s often assumed you’ll just sort of learn it on your own. The trouble is that there is little guidance out there to help you do that well, until now! This book focuses on learning to read standard guitar notation from fret 12 to 20, and like all Missing Method for Guitar Books, it includes tons of practice songs, examples, clear explanations, and exercises to help you master the highest notes on the guitar.

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