Methods for rock-blues guitar method are not normally written but assembled with the classic copy-paste. Because, between us, the scales are those and the chords as well so it is not that we can invent much.
Especially after stumbling upon reckless purchases, represented by books trumpeting on the cover, 5000 chords or guitarists in 24 hours. In short, learning takes time and dedication and the guitar needs to be assimilated, understood and above all metabolized. This is the reason that led us to this manual of more than four hundred pages. Just to follow step by step all the various techniques and to address the various themes of the instrument.
We called it History and Geography method for rock-blues guitar precisely to emphasize that it is an instrument on which it is also necessary to assimilate the geographical aspect of the keyboard. In order to make the most of its timbre and musical possibilities. We could summarize the historical aspect with: everything in its time.
Folk wisdom or a concept developed by Johann Nepomuk Maelzel, the inventor of the metronome? The fact is that our tastes change, evolve or maybe grow exponentially compared to our age. When we begin to approach the guitar, we think of it as an undefined device, but capable of stretching six strings so that harmonic steel or nylon can resonate and restore emotion.
The object of desire does not yet have a well-defined shape but is only an embryo equipped with strings to "scramble" and some chords that we need to sing out a few hits around the summer bonfire. But behind the playful and social aspect and under the tip of the iceberg there is a world ready to welcome us and give us the opportunity to express our creativity as long as we know the "rules of the game".
If in English the verb "to play" is used both to play and to play, we could safely say that in this book there are many of the "rules" that have allowed many musicians and guitarists, in particular, to become adults without ever stopping play. It must be said that in recent years the two authors have played a lot until the game has become their main occupation, their job.
