Si le contenu du livre est tout à fait intéressant, les vidéos online et l'audio sont totalement absentes du Kindle, que ce soit sur Mac ou tablette... Dommage pour un contenu soit-disant multimédia et pour un livre sur la musique. Kindle ou comment produire un outil numérique encore moins performant qu'un livre et un CD ! C'est beau le progrès.

I can't compare this with other books of the same kind, but I have learned quite a lot from it already.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not just good - a GREAT guide and inspiration 16 octobre 2013
Par chungking - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have been struggling to understand and learn guitar for twenty years. (Not a typo.) In that time I've had seven guitar teachers. Some were expensive. A couple had good technique. All failed to make sense to me. I own a LOT of guitar books - spiral bound books packed with mysterious chord shapes, theory books from famous schools, method books, classical books - all gathering dust. I've tried it all.

Only once I found Desi's book and his free podcasts did it all "click" so I could begin to play. I'm not performing yet, but for the very first time, I understand the full "landscape" of the guitar, why I'm learning scales, why a chord is what it is, how all the pieces fit together.

Words can't describe how grateful I am for this book. I hope it brings you similar joy. (And if, like me, you prefer to "understand" what you're doing, I'm sure it will.)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful for Rock/Pop-Oriented Players and Songwriters 27 novembre 2013
Par frankp93 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
First off: If you interested in music theory strictly in the context of jazz or classical music, there are many more in-depth and narrowly-focused texts out there that I’d recommend over this one. For that matter, if you're interested exclusively in a particular genre, such as metal, you'd probably prefer a book that deals just with that in more detail.

But if you’re a ‘by ear’ player of any genre of rock, blues, or pop, or a songwriter who wants to better understand what you’re doing and use that knowledge to broaden your options for writing and improvising, there’s a lot of useful material here, presented in a friendly straightforward way.

The material covered is essentially chords (the commonly used CAGED system of fingerings), chord progressions and scales. The book assumes you already play at an intermediate level and is really about giving you the knowledge behind what you already know and the tools to build upon your current skills.

The book refers to a large number of rock and popular tunes to illustrate chord progressions and the use of particular scales. It seems purposely designed to appeal to a wide range of players, covering titles from the 60’s through the past decade, so you’re bound to find a couple of tunes you know well that really nail down some of the ideas.

The presentation uses primarily chord diagrams and tab, with a relatively small amount of traditional notation that’s always accompanied by tab. The author makes the point (and I strongly agree) that learning traditional music notation doesn’t mean becoming as proficient as an orchestral conductor or a concert violinist. It means, for the most part, understanding rhythmic subdivision up to 16th notes. We all choose the effort we put into music and what we get from it. I’ll just say that if you have the patience to learn tab, you have the patience to learn basic notation, and you’ll never regret the musical doors that open up to you as a result.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great companion to Fretboard Theory!! 22 décembre 2013
Par Eric AMF - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
A friendly and gentle approach to music theory for guitar. However, in spite of the “Theory” in the title, this is a very practical book with a lot of examples and applications. Serna revisits the topics discussed in Fretboard Theory, but not as a repetition. I would say it’s more like a companion and a good one to his previous books. I particularly enjoyed the Chapter 15 “Playing the Blues” and the discussion on improvisation. I have the Kindle version and it is very good, with clear illustrations, and all ancillary material can be downloaded from Wiley website. I rate myself as a beginner and I’m enjoying this book, although the author warns if you don’t have previous experience with guitar playing, you better try other resources before delving into this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you really want to learn don't quit. 7 février 2014
Par propman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I also have his DVD's and his Fretboard Theory book. I am 40+ I've attempted to learn on my own in my early twenties, it was a lost cause back then; we did not have the you tube & all back then. I went through 5 teachers and finally found one that knew what Desi was talking about and took the time to watch his DVD's & look over his book's. I was a beginner about a year ago when I purchased Desi's dvd's and book. By the time I started looking for a good teacher, because of Desi's material, I knew more than some of the teachers. He puts a disclaimer saying that all his materials are for intermediate and not for beginners; yes you have to know a little bit to get his material and his teachings but if you really want to learn to play his teachings makes you more curious and gets you to do more. So if you don't know a think or two at the beginning that is not included in his material they are easy to find on line. I am a equipment junky, I have several guitars and I have books and DVD's up to the ceiling. Nothing comes close to his method. If you can not learn from his material go pick up Golf or something. I highly recommend you to stick with it and apply how he is telling you to apply his material, trust me I play golf too (I don't know why) …
I also studied Bill Edwards Fretboard Logic. One could say Desi makes it a bit more fun and easy to learn.
After owning his material for little over a year I wanted to write this ( I don't much care to do) not so much to benefit him, I think he is doing just fine, but to save some folks the pain, expense and most of all not to quit. I consider myself still a beginner but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Not that there is an end to this life long commitment but the tunnel is bright now (Thank you Desi). Some folks may not even need a teacher with this material to learn and get very good. Also a software like Garage band. I just like the enforcement of weekly lessons with a teacher who understands the Desi method.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very well done with good demonstration videos 21 juin 2014
Par Kevin Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is a perfect combination of theory and practical information. One minor quibble is that instead of just referencing classic rock pieces that exemplify a technique, it would be helpful for a short video segment playing the excerpt so that we better understand how it is constructed.
