Prolific guitar-writer Jamie Humphries offers a complete 8-week crash course in the electric guitar. Featuring two CDs packed with demonstrations and examples, this volume starts at the very beginning with your first chords and rhythms. You will then tackle blues shapes and your first soloing ideas, expand your chordal vocabulary, learn a library of scales and exactly how to apply them ... and before you know it you're playing the electric guitar! Each week of lessons ends with a test to assess your progression. Get off the ground fast with this innovative approach to guitar study. ©2004, 248 pages.
