    I've since reached the age where I probably have more years behind me than ahead of me. Enduring my "middle years," I have accumulated some regrets, as is to be expected. If one looks at some of the potentially glaring examples from a long list--allowing much damage to my health, never finding a career that matches my potentials and temperament, never getting married and starting a family, spending more of my time alone than is wise, in short, wasting a life--the one that causes me the most freq I've since reached the age where I probably have more years behind me than ahead of me. Enduring my "middle years," I have accumulated some regrets, as is to be expected. If one looks at some of the potentially glaring examples from a long list--allowing much damage to my health, never finding a career that matches my potentials and temperament, never getting married and starting a family, spending more of my time alone than is wise, in short, wasting a life--the one that causes me the most frequent distress is never learning to play a musical instrument, namely, the guitar. No doubt, this is yet another example of my foolish misjudgment of priorities, but there it is. I've never claimed not to be a chronic screw up. For many wasted years, I went around telling myself I was too old to take up music. Why spend the time if one can't ever become good? When I was even older but somewhat wiser, I realized that the point was the journey rather than the destination, so I tried to learn the guitar. I did my research, bought a good beginner instrument, found some well regarded books and websites, and set out. I worked my way through the initial finger pain, but my chronic back pain defeated me. Recently, however, I figured out a way to work around my traitorous back. I have again started teaching myself the guitar. Fretboard Logic SE by Bill Edwards is one of the best regarded guitar teaching manuals that my research turned up. It sure looks good to me, and I believe the man is onto something. Be aware, however, that my evaluation is a naive evaluation. An experienced player might rate it differently. Also, the date listed for my finishing the book is misleading, for I'm sure that I've read through it at least once previously.

    BE CAREFUL! This book starts out with one of the best, most concise explanations of the Guitars tuning system and where the CAGED system gets its name from. He correctly shows how the guitar and its tuning are a 100% physically based system, allowing us to play complex pieces with minimal strain or effort to our hands. Here's the problem. He then completely forgets this fact in the second half of the book advocating absurd, often painful chord forms like the "barred G" form, (which no one ever re BE CAREFUL!

He then completely forgets this fact in the second half of the book advocating absurd, often painful chord forms like the "barred G" form, (which no one ever really plays) in an attempt to force a visual/mental system on the neck. The very mention of this book has made several of my guitar students wince in pain at its mention, having learned it pretty much verbatim from another teacher in the area. There are much easier and less painful ways to learn chords and scales via the CAGED system. Back to the positives, the diagrams are of very high quality and correct, his explanations of the harmonic tension created by different scale choices is spot-on and very accessible, and his "lead patterns" are well explained and can be very useful. You will learn a great deal from this book, but please skip the extreme chord forms. When your hand starts hurting, use some common sense.

    On your third reread, start at p. 46 of Vol II! So much worthwhile commentary on shapes. Oh, shapes.

    A brilliant book that I will be coming back to again and again. I've been playing for years and already knew much of this book but to see it broken down and applied in this way is eye opening. I'll be reading this again and again over the coming months. A brilliant book that I will be coming back to again and again.

    A fantastic tool that provided an excellent refresher for those daring to venture further up the fretboard :)

    After nearly 30 years of moving at a snail's pace on guitar... I'm searching for that epiphanic moment. After nearly 30 years of moving at a snail's pace on guitar... I'm searching for that epiphanic moment.

    I'm learning to play the guitar and this is one of the best books for learning. It was recommended by my friend Dan who has been playing for 15 years.
