Unlock the Power of Note Reading in 5th Position
Many guitar methods touch on note reading in the open position, but that’s where it ends. This leaves most guitarists having to figure out the rest of the fretboard on their own, which can be tedious, time-consuming, and downright frustrating. But not anymore.
Learn Every Note
With this second book in the series you will master every note in 5th position (frets 5-8), in every key.

More Rhythm Practice to Solidify your skills
Practice and Play in every key
Each lesson comes with ample practice exercises and sample songs to cement the knowledge before moving on to the next lesson. Streaming audio files are included so you can hear each exercise and song.
Practice Scales and Keys
With each key you will learn a variety of scales including one and two octaves scales, relative minor, and thirds.
You'll also learn the Circle of Fifths and how it’s used.
The benefits of learning note reading extend beyond the ability to read sheet music. You'll find that your sight reading skills and understanding of the fretboard will grow too, making you a more confident and competent musician.

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