The Missing Method for Guitar, Book 2: Master Note Reading in the 5th Position
Move beyond the basics of note reading.Many guitar methods touch on note reading in the open position, but that’s where it ends. This leaves most guitarists having to figure out the rest of the fretboard on their own, which can be tedious, time-consuming, and downright frustrating. But not anymore.
