The Missing Method Difference


The Missing Method books were born out of the need for guitar method books that simply didn't exist. We don't replicate what is already working well. We strive to create something new to help you become a better guitar player.

Step-by-Step Instruction

Each book is designed progressively to take you through each lesson a step at a time. Whether you decide to use our books with an instructor or go it alone, you we've got you covered.


Each Missing Method book is focused on one particular skill or technique, so we can go into depth on each topic. Our books not only make great instructional tools, but they also make handy reference guides to refer back to when you need a refresher.

Ample Practice

When we say mastery, we mean it. Each book features enough exercises and sample songs to offer variety and cement your skills.

Professional Expertise

A BA in Jazz Studies, a Master's Degree in Education, and over 20 years teaching guitar students of all ages means we can stand behind our material 100%.

Personal Touch

We're not a giant corporation, and we don't aspire to be. We're a married couple, doing what we love. When you buy our books, you support a small business. And when you offer suggestions, we listen. Please keep in touch. We want to hear from you.
