Comments: well, i've been self-teaching myself guitar for about 6 months or so now, and this page helped me a little, so "thank you, powdered toast man!" i've also noticed something about this guest book ::yawn:: it's nice that people wanna thank you for helping them with their guitar skills and all, but i got really bored reading ALL THREE signatures, so to spice it up a little, when ever i'm on-line and i feel a little inspired, i'm just going to write something really stupid on your page. maybe it'll be a really cool beatles quote, perhaps a poem i wrote YA JUST DON'T KNOW! muahaha! be prepared! (don't wory, no obsenities will be used, and only stupid people curse)

(past 30 years to be exact) but I am proud to see that you have taken this site to all so that others can learn one step at a time. Your understanding of music theory is without question form my end. Keep up the fine work! If you publish your work in book form, I'll be in line for it! My best to you and yours, Wade Malaby...

Comments: As a teenager, I "hacked" at guitar for approx. 5 years. I never learned to read music and I'm pretty much tone deaf. In time I lost intrest. Now 25 years later, I'm 40 and decided to give it another go. I bought myself a Fender Telecaster and a Hot Rod DeVille amp. I think I've spent almost as much money on instructional material, but nothing I've bought to date has helped me understand the workings of this instrument as much as the information on your website. Thank you, and please keep up this great work. I'd like to buy your book when its published. A. M. Migliaccio

Comments: Simply amazing! I have been self taught using everthing from scale and chord books to home videos. The problem is knowing a method of application to my music. I am impressed at the technics you imply to help simplify the theories. Thank you for the time and effort made to make this sight possible.

Comments: Hi Just wanted to say, I've played guitar since I was twelve years old and I taught myself simply by ear. I am now forty-eight years old and was frustrated because I only basically knew chord formations. I knew there was so much more about the instrument I loved. I've tried many instruction books from music stores, and they all gave me patterns to follow, but no reson behind them. I found your web site, and am currently following "The Essential Guitar Guide". It was if a light went off in my mind. So many of the things I have been doing all these years with the guitar are starting to make sense. I am beginning to know the "why". A whole world of guitar has been hidden, and now it is openning. Please keep up the good work. Believe me, your technique of teaching is the best I've seen. Gary

Comments: This is a great guide book for guitar theory. Not too much, not too little. Its jazz orientation shows itself, and that is good. I play jazz sax (for many years) but the music theory here for guitars also translates well to other instruments. You have given the basic steps one needs to get to improvs. Thanks.

Comments: I am a beginning guitarist who has been searching the web for an informative, simple instruction guide to learning this instrument and I do believe I've found just that. After reading the previous entries in this guestbook, I have come to the conclusion that even though I haven't had the time to read everything you've written, it will definitely be worth my time in the future. Although I am only 16 years old, I am very serious about wanting to learn. Thank you so much for taking the time to create such an informative resource. I have already added this page to my bookmarks and you can count on hearing from me in the future, when I'm a renouned artist! Thanks again. Kassondra

Your Web site has made it very easy for me to fill in the gaps in my knowledge. "The Essential Guitar" is very well written; detailed enough for full comprehension while being concise for increased retension. I appreciate the fact that you are offering this information for free. I would also be very interested in purchasing the full text when it is availible. Thank You! Namaste, McE
