Guitar Visualizations is my "Play Book" for learning basic music theory applied to the guitar fingerboard.
~It is presented almost entirely in diagram form to stimulate the student to view the fretboardfrom a variety of angles and approaches.
~If you are a guitar teacher, this book would be an excellent resource. You could use the diagrams as jump off points for both theoretical and technical studies.
~The open format of the "Play Book" leaves only one's imagination to fill in the spaces(or not).
Guitar Visualizations 2018 Edition - $7.95 ~an updated version with added graphics, mind-bending Futuracha fonts for the cover and chapter titles and "2" sets of stimulating and colorfulSupplemental Pages!
I consider myself an artist in the studio. As such, I always try to remember that just as a fine artist such as a Van Gogh never attempts to paint the precise reality of a scene or landscape (which he cannot do anyway), instead he captures the emotion of his interpretation on the canvas. I realized long ago that I couldn't paint the reality of a sonic image. We can't even define reality. The feeling of the music is what I am after. I want people to be able to listen to the music and to experience the sincerity of its emotion. It's when the technical covers the primitive that we lose the passion of music! - Bruce Swedien, Legendary Recording Engineer and Producer
