Technique and Theory
Guitar Books

Once Upon a Time, Before the Internet...

There were these things called Books.

They didn’t need to be charged. No rewinding, either. You could get really, really good by working through them, page by page. Great guitar books were rare, but if you found one, you kept it in your guitar case...

You’re going to need a bigger case.
