Imagine picking up your guitar and playing your favourite songs note-for-note.
Think of the intense chills running up and down your spine with every mesmerizing note
Pretty cool, huh?
But is this really possible when you have so little time to practice and learn guitar?
Well, let me ask you this:
"What's the biggest thing that limits how fast and well you learn to play guitar?"
Do you think it’s how long you practice?
Well, that's what most guitarists think.
But consider this...
Isn't how you use your practice time more important? After all, you could spend hours
and hours practicing, but if you aren't doing the right stuff the proper way, aren't you
just wasting your time?
What 9 Out of 10 Guitar Players Don't Know
Did you know that 9 out of 10 guitarists don't know how to practice for maximum
Most guitarists don't know how to make fast and continuous improvement in their

What’s also great about this is you’ll always have these skills. This means you’ll be able to use these powerful learning techniques

You’ll learn everything you need to go from absolute beginner to intermediate guitarist-fast. And you’ll have tons of fun along
The EDGE: CORE Beginner Guitar Lessons Volumes 1 & 2 take all the guesswork out of learning to play guitar.
You get 22 complete guitar lessons that are organized into easy to learn bite-sized chunks.
You'll start with the basics and learn:
Tablature, or tab as it is also known, is a REALLY EASY WAY TO LEARN GUITAR MUSIC.
In tablature each line represents a string. A number on a string indicates the fret you place your finger on. It’s as simple as
This means you’ll easily translate the notes from a song onto the neck of your guitar without having to read music!
Next you'll move on to the really cool stuff: how to play songs!
You Don't Just Read This Book-You Play it
Hear it, then play it audio tracks are included!
It's Like Following Paint-by-Numbers for Guitar
Each lesson breaks everything down step-by-step and gives you a suggested time to spend on each area.
No guesswork is involved-ALL YOU DO IS PLAY.
In The EDGE: CORE Beginner Guitar Lessons Volumes 1 & 2 you won’t find songs like Mary Had a Little Lamb; Twinkle, Twinkle
Little Star, or Polly Wolly Doodle.
Here you will learn to play some great and fun songs...
There is however one song that you probably won’t brag to friends about: ”Sailor’s Hornpipe”. The reason it’s included here is
because it’s a good technique building song-you just don’t have to play it for anyone other than yourself. You’ll enjoy playing
all of the other songs and probably start to secretly like “Sailor’s Hornpipe” once you can play it at a moderate to fast tempo.
All songs are of easy to moderate difficulty, and are short and complete. I mention this because some of the other beginner
books and courses give you tiny sections of songs. You just get a couple of measures and then it’s on to the next example.
Here you get complete arrangements to songs, or in the case of a longer piece you will find a good complete abridgement.
The songs included here have been selected because they are FUN TO PLAY, will improve your technique, and allow you to
apply concepts covered in the lessons.
And the really great thing is you will quickly discover how to learn your favourite songs.

Why Most Guitarists Fail to Learn the Notes

With this course, you’ll simply perform 2 easy exercises, for 2 minutes, each playing session. After 5 weeks, you'll know the
If you want to spend more than 2 minutes on these techniques, you'll learn the fretboard even faster. Some guitarists
prefer to spend 5-10 minutes and learn the fretboard in 2 weeks or less.
Now Here's the Great Thing…
Since you're only spending 2 minutes learning the fretboard, it frees up the rest of your time to do whatever you want.
Since you only need to put in 2 minutes each practice session, I'm sure you can see how this is truly the pain-free way to
learn the fretboard.

“Could This Be the Missing Link to Improve Your
Guitar Playing Fast?”
The Critical Window for Guitar Improvement
Did you know the first 5-10 minutes of your playing session sets the upper limits on what you’ll achieve in your entire
When you are short on playing time, this crucial 5-10 minute window is even more important!
But how do most guitarists start their practice sessions?
Guitarists do one of two things.
Most, just pick up their guitar and start playing songs.
Now hang on a second…that’s the reason you decided to play guitar in the first place isn’t it? So what could possibly
be wrong with that?
Well, the problem is that most songs are not designed to properly warm-up your hands.
A Hidden Reason for Slow Improvement on Guitar
Have you ever thought about the fact that songs do not use all fingers equally? Pick any two songs and count how
many times each finger is used. Do this, and you’ll find that your fingers are used differently in every song.
This means that depending on the songs you play, one or more of your fingers may be neglected.
The BIG Problem
Over several practice sessions, this often leads to a big problem I frequently find among guitarists---one or two
fingers are much weaker than the rest.
This means songs that use your weak fingers will take way more time to learn and will be much harder to play than
they should be.
What About the Other Thing Guitarists Do?
The other way that guitarists start a practice session, is by doing some sort of a “warm-up”. What’s considered to
be a warm-up varies widely from player to player. Unfortunately, most guitarists do not warm-up correctly. They
usually miss crucial things, or do things in the wrong order. This means they are not warming up effectively and
ultimately end up wasting much of their valuable practice time.
Everyone Knows What a Warm-up is Supposed to Do, or Do They?
A warm-up allows your body and mind to perform at an optimal level and prevent injury.
Think for a moment about what is required when you play the guitar…
Think of all of the fine motor skills that are required…
There are 34 muscles that move the fingers and thumb-17 in the palm and 18 in the forearm. And that’s not
counting the muscles in your upper arm, shoulders, back and neck!
A Recipe for Disaster
You would never think about going to the gym, grabbing the heaviest weight you could ever lift, and lifting with no
warm-up, would you? No way!
You know that’s a recipe for disaster. When you don’t warm-up in the gym you run the risk of injury.
It’s the same on guitar. When you don’t warm-up properly on guitar, you also run the risk of injury.
The Mind…A Terrible Thing to Waste Especially for Guitar
The other neglected part of the warm-up is the mind.
When you pick up your guitar to play, are you always instantly absorbed with 100% concentration?
Or, does it take a bit of playing to get your mind away from work or school?
And what about those days when you just can’t seem to get your mind on your playing?
When your mind is distracted and thinking of other things, do you really think you are in the best state for learning
and improving your playing?
A proper warm-up will get your mind focused on guitar as quickly as possible, so you’ll learn faster.
And don’t worry, if your main guitar goal is to simply unwind and relax after a hard day, a proper warm-up will relax
you even faster!
When you warm-up properly, you’ll:
Have better mental concentration and clarity.
Get into a relaxed state ready to learn and have massive fun.
Get more done every practice session. This means better results from every
Make fewer mistakes.
Learn songs quick.
Learn everything else on guitar faster.
Improve your overall playing.
Improve your technique.
Decrease the risk of injury.
The good news is I will show you how to create the most effective and
powerful warm-up for you. That’s what The EDGE: Power Warm-ups
is all about: it’s about creating your own personal Power Warm-ups.
In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to create
your own super-effective Power Warm-ups.
You’ll learn how to maximize the results you get from your warm-
You’ll discover how to transform a regular warm-up into a Power
You’ll learn 8 Guitar Practice Maximizers. These are simple tweaks
that will instantly improve your results. That’s right, you will notice
better results from the very first practice session you use the Guitar
You’ll also learn the 2 essential things you absolutely need for a Power
The New Daily Dozen for Today’s Guitarist You’ll learn the New Daily Dozen. You may have heard of the Daily Dozen before. For us however, our Daily Dozen is totally different than those found in the dusty old violin and piano methods---we are just borrowing the name. For us, these are 12 very specific guitar exercises designed to get you warmed-up fast. In fact, I never start a practice session without them!
Warm-up Songs…What the…? Now hang on a minute…didn’t you just read earlier that songs are not designed to warm-up your hands?
Yes, that is 100% correct.
Songs usually do not give all fingers a balanced warm-up. What you will find in this course are 15 specifically selected songs that will give you a good warm-up. It actually took me 17 months to find the right balance of songs!
Could this Be Magic?
The trick is that these potent warm-up songs must be used in specific combinations to warm up your hands properly. In this course, you will learn exactly how this works. And don’t worry, it is super simple.
These special songs will complete the warm-up process for you. After that, you’ll be totally charged up and ready for maximum results from the rest of your playing session!
Ultimately, when you warm-up properly, you’ll save more time than it takes, because you’ll be primed to fly through the
rest of your practice session with ease.
By now I’m sure you’ll be starting to see why the warm-up is the most important part of your practice sessions. It really
sets you up for the rest of your playing session.
Some Good News
Now you can learn the proper way to warm-up. In fact, you can kick it up several notches and transform a regular
warm-up into a Power Warm-up.
Your Personal Power Warm-up Prescription
Just as there is no single warm-up that will work for every athlete in every sport, there is no such thing as the one
perfect warm-up for every single guitarist.
29 mp3 audio tracks included
Reading Music is NOT REQUIRED!
No music theory required
Power Warm-ups are Flexible and Very Time Efficient
The goal of the Power Warm-up is to get you warmed-up as fast as possible. If you spend more time warming-up
than you need, you are actually wasting time. In The EDGE: Power Warm-ups, you will learn what to look for and how to
tell when you are properly warmed-up.
A Power Warm-up will give you the EDGE over most guitar players. With Power Warm-ups, you’ll be ready both physically
and mentally to get the most out of your guitar playing sessions-maximum results in minimum time, with maximum fun!
Most guitarists have to settle for slow, or no progress on guitar.
This is usually regardless of how long they practice.
It takes most guitarists months, or even years, to achieve what they could get in half the time.
This usually leads to frustration, and sadly, sometimes even quitting guitar.
It’s a shame, because there’s actually a simple fix.
How to Turbo-Charge Your Guitar Results
You see, there are certain things you can do that will turbo-charge your results on guitar. For some guitarists, this
means adding in some new things, for others it means making some tiny changes.
The really good news is these little “tweaks” are super easy to do and won’t
require adding any additional time to your playing sessions. It’s all about
getting better results from of your existing playing time.
And no, this doesn’t mean you have to get super strict on how you practice.
These techniques are very flexible and will ensure you to have lots of fun
playing guitar---that’s what it’s all about anyway, isn’t it?
Over 20 Years in the Making
Over the past 20 years of teaching guitarists just like you, I’ve been

and possibly start to play worse! Yes, this sounds strange, but once you understand it, you’ll know why.

on the brakes to your guitar progress?
It’s a very common mistake I see guitarists of all levels make. The good news is once you know what it is, it’s easy to

Learn Music Theory?
Up until now, learning music theory could be very time consuming, boring, confusing and difficult. Some books present
music theory in an intimidating way and show you absolutely no application to the guitar.
It's no wonder that so many guitarists have tried to learn music theory only to quit out of sheer frustration.
There are lots of music theory books on the market today, but very few are written for the guitarist. Those that are,
either have far too little information to be of any real use for guitarists, or they get really bogged down on the nitty-gritty
Don, I just want to say thank you for writing the Absolute Essentials of
Music Theory for Guitar. This book cuts to the chase and not a bunch of
useless explanations that confuses the crap out of me.

good ear for music, theory has always been a nightmare.
At least I have hope for learning what makes the music work.
Thanks again and much appreciated.
Don, your books have gotten me further in music theory than any
other book, software and video, and I have complete bookshelves just for
these music media....You've given me a large appetite for learning music
theory and different ways of learning that are so easy even my daughter
of 11 can grasp the concepts. Thanks again Don.
I'm glad to tell you that I can understand the contents in your music theory
book. It's really amazing how you could write such an easily
understandable book. It's much easier to understand than those
books written in my own language here in Korea. Thank you very
much for such brilliant books, Don.
Fantastic Book!!! I haven't had time to go through the whole book yet,
but here's what I can say...
I now understand where all the notes on the fretboard are, and they are
taught in such a way that it was easy to understand. I can now put my
fingers down anywhere on the guitar and know immediately what note I am
playing. I have learned the patterns to where all the different notes fall on
each string, and it is not confusing at all. Learning something as simple as
that has helped me understand and make sense of things that were
otherwise very confusing.
I also like the way that the scales have been explained. Learning what the
major and minor scales are and how to apply them has also helped
This book has taken me to the next level in my ability to play the

"How to Learn, Apply and Absolutely Understand
Guitar Scales Super-Fast"
Guitar Essentials: Scale Master Expanded Edition
Think about this for a minute...
Every guitar riff or lick you play is simply one scale, or a combination of scales.
Every guitar solo you play consists of scales.
Every chord you play is built from scales.
Scales are the foundation of music.
Chords are built from scales.
Melodies are built from scales.
Guitar solos and riffs are built from scales.
When you master the crucial guitar scales you’ll:
Learn songs faster
Improve your technique
Learn songs by just watching other guitarists
Learn songs by ear. You’ll recognize the sound of each scale and know
when it’s used in a song.
Create killer guitar solos of your own
Learn your favourite guitar solos fast!
Eyes Wide Open
Let's look a little closer at the last point shown above: "learn your favourite guitar solos fast". Here is a real eye-opening
exercise that you can do when you get your hands on Guitar Essentials: Scale Master Expanded Edition.
Grab a guitar magazine that has a guitar solo you want to learn. Most guitar magazines have performance notes that
mention the scales used in the guitar solos. Before you play the first note of the guitar solo, play the appropriate scale
fingerings from Guitar Essentials: Scale Master Expanded Edition.
No More Confusion
Now you’re ready to start on the guitar solo. As you play through the guitar solo you’ll notice something very cool…
The very same scale fingerings that are found in Guitar Essentials: Scale Master Expanded Edition are used in the solo. If
identical fingerings aren’t used, you’ll find that slight variations are.
This means the guitar solo won’t be a confusing mass of notes anymore. Since you know the scale fingerings used in
the guitar solo, you already know all of the required notes. You just need to learn the order that the notes occur. Can
you see how powerful this is?
Cut the Time it Takes You to Learn
Guitar Solos at Least in Half

I'm sure by now you can see that there's tons of great, practical information in The Ultimate Guitar EDGE and it will dramatically
improve your guitar playing.

hour. Now bear in mind that with a year of once-a-week lessons there is no way you would learn even half of the material covered
in The Ultimate Guitar EDGE.
Well first of all, most guitarists don't know this information. What they don't know, they can't teach you.
Second, since most guitar teachers are not familiar with real accelerated learning methods, it would take you double, triple or even
quadruple the time to learn this material---if they even knew this material in the first place!
