    Difficulty Level:
  • July 16, 2021 Too much focus on chords

    I enjoy Jake’s music, but as a lesson book, I would think this book should cover more areas. I feel half of the book is about chord and strumming techniques. There is no mention of major scales, harmony, or any music theory. The instruction videos are nice and approachable...

    . But, again, for chords. There are a few transcripts of Jake’s songs. Yet, I don’t see how just doing chord exercises can get to the level of playing his songs. For a book that bears his name and the word “teach”, I would like to see some lessons that incorporate melody and chords in Jake’s style.
