Scotty's famous color-coded guitar scale and chord fingering charts are much better than those old black and white finger charts. They tell you much more than just where to position your fingers. They show you how each note functions in the scale or chord it is in, and how it works with other scales and chords in a song. This is critical for lead guitarists and folks interested in song writing and improvising. As you learn these new finger patterns, your ear training and guitar music theory knowledge expands as well. Most every guitar chord, scale, mode and arpeggio pattern known to man is featured in this simple, well organized resource ... and it's all integrated with the official course handbook and the DVD guitar lessons themselves.

All the guitar finger charts and graphics that Scotty shows you in the DVD guitar lessons are reprinted in your book so you can study them up close while viewing the video guitar lessons on your TV or PC. Created by a professional graphic artist, these charts and illustrations are simple to read and understand. Scotty can make even the most complex music theory easy to comprehend. The information is presented in logical order so that each lesson flows into the next. This allows folks to truly understand the interconnections between scales and modes ... melody and improvisation ... chords and progressions and how it all works together to make up the tunes we like to play.
