Description

by Cal Williams Jr.

The Guitar Toolbox series is a ground-breaking new method of learning modern guitar based upon moveable scale and chord shapes. The Guitar Toolbox series steers away from the traditional classical guitar methods used in other guitar books and is the first book of its kind to approachthe guitar from a modern guitarists point of view.

The Guitar Toolbox series takes the student from the simple pentatonic scale foundation to playing the complete major, minor and blues fretboards. The Guitar Toolbox series also infuses the students chord palette with triad chords based around the 1, 4, 5 and the complete perfect chords in all keys.
