Most guitarists tend to memorize songs without learning the underlying theories and musical forms. This book is a practical description of a guitar player's journey from very simple chords and progressions to more intricate songs and forms. It describes in a humorous and engaging way, how the evolution of an individual's skill at playing is mirrored in the historical evolution of musical forms. By taking a closer look at the music we already know, we can take a giant step in understanding and skill.
