If you enjoyed the simple and intuitive and musical method that we used in the Intermediate Scales Handbook, you’ll be pleased to know you can easily use it to incorporate exotic scales into your playing. I’ve hand-picked 15 of my favorite exotic scales and modes that I think are really useful for adding different flavors to your solos or exploring new sonic territory on the instrument. You’ll be able to incorporate these new sounds into your playing as I’ve laid out the book according to chord types you already know and probably use all the time. Then, in the final section of the book, we’ll look at two easy-to-follow methods for creating strange and beautiful chord progressions from any scale in this book. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the original Intermediate Scales Handbook, as this ‘exotic scales’ edition can easily be used as a stand-alone book. On the other hand, if you have covered the material from the original book, you’ve already paved the way for these new scales and modes to slot nicely into your improvisational repertoire.

In this book, I’d like to show you what I discovered about teaching scales to intermediate guitarists, as well as the one thing that really made a difference to their ability to improvise in a musical way, rather than running aimlessly up and down CAGED shapes or 3NPS scale patterns. I was always puzzled as to why players with a good grasp of pentatonics lost their way when they started to learn the major scale and its modes, or any other scale for that matter. I wanted to know, so I began to study how other instrumentalists learn scales and it suddenly dawned on me where guitarists were going wrong. What I noticed was that the way in which guitarists go about learning scales in the beginning is not only unmusical, but counterintuitive and counterproductive due to a combination of the scale shapes themselves and how they navigate the fretboard. This book is aimed at high beginner to intermediate guitarists who are wondering where to go after pentatonic scales, but it’s also useful for anyone starting out with scales and will most likely save you years of wasted practice time in both cases.

The purpose of this book is to give you a single source to refer to when looking for information regarding the use of scales for improvisation. This is not a method. Rather, it is a reference book. You can look up any chord to learn what scales will work with it. You can also look up any scale to learn every chord it works with. You will find two fingering diagrams for every scale and several voicings for the chords. Standard notation and TAB.

"We loved the book. The information was well paced and concise enough not to overwhelm. Any beginner would definitely benefit from having this book, and it's a great reminder for those who might have forgotten details or are looking for them.” -- Nimal De Silva, The Music Garage (Singapore) "Plenty of detail that goes into posture, hand position, thumb position, etc. The notation and strumming is really good here because it builds up in stages. In a lesson, you can introduce it in this way piece by piece and not overwhelm the student." -- Michael Hanna, Grade 8 RS.Guitar - Larne Guitar School (N.Ireland) Learn to Play Guitar is comprehensive and clear with over 180 photographic examples, illustrations and purpose made diagrams. This guitar book includes 42 downloadable mp3 tracks of full band demo and backing track with the guitar removed for you to play over. Learn to Play Guitar bridges the gaps explaining guitar techniques that can be taken for granted by more experienced guitar players. Melodies: To get you straight into playing music, numbers have been added underneath guitar tablature to assist with the rhythm. Later on, the rhythmical aspect of conventional music notation is covered so you can use it in conjunction with tablature. Rhythm Guitar: Changing between chords and strumming are presented as separate subjects initially, so that you can develop coordination in each hand independently. They are then brought together starting basic and getting more advanced until there is a rhythm guitar musical piece to play. Music theory: The major scale, minor scale, major and minor pentatonic scales and basic major and minor chord construction are explained in terms of the fret-board and reinforced by musical pieces in various styles to make the learning process practical and enjoyable. What else?: Fret-board layout, power chords, barre chords, how to string a guitar, how to practise guitar, palm muting and basic lead guitar techniques. Please Note: The eBook includes musical pieces so is not suitable for smaller screens. "This top value eBook and MP3 package covers a wide range topics essential for all guitarists. Over 100 pages with plenty of information and solid advice that a player can dip into as needed. Evans does not gloss over the often neglected area of reading notation for rhythm. There are many examples to practice (melodies and rhythm patterns) with the backing tracks. I was especially interested in the final section of exercises to keep your body guitar-ready. A very useful tool to help you progress with your guitar playing." -- Hedley Timbs BA(Mus), Grad.Dip. Teaching (New Zealand) "Awesome. Well laid out, easy to look at and there is the supplemental material to top it off. The theory may get tedious for some, it's hard to not teach theory but most people seem to have an aversion to it, the idea of discipline I think." -- Gernot Schlegel, Professional Guitarist & Teacher (Canada) "There’s two ways of learning the guitar – the first is two learn enough of the basics to fly towards playing your favourite songs competently, and the second is to intensively gain an understanding of the instrument by forming a solid foundation through taking your time with it in the early stages. The book titled “Learn to play Guitar” by Gareth Evans is of the latter approach. Through reading and learning from this book, players can discover a deep, extensive and in-depth approach to the technique, theory and everything else related to being a good beginner guitarist. Newcomers can learn positive and productive exercises to train their body to better play the guitar (not just their fingers) and across the 120 or so pages within, it’s clear that the writer has put a lot of time into figuring out the right approach for starters to take when adjusting to the standard 6-string. Would recommend this for anyone who is looking to get a really solid grip on how to play the guitar, and also to tutors who are looking at ways to improve their own tutoring abilities." -- Logan Ellis, Mgr. Spiderhands Productions Ltd (New Zealand) "Learn to play Guitar is an ideal companion to support the beginner on their new found musical journey. Highly recommended." -- Liam Cain, BMus (hons) Professional Guitarist (UK)
