The Creative Guitar series aims to provide the frustrated rock guitarist with new directions in which to explore his art. This book focuses on how you can expand your potential by refining your playing techniques, allowing you to tackle more complex riffs and solos. Creative Guitar 1: Cutting-Edge Techniques also addresses the much-feared topic of music theory, explaining the basic principles and demonstrating how they can actually be applied in real musical situations. Armed with the accompanying CD featuring detailed examples of pentatonic patterns, minor arpeggios and backing tracks, you can do much more than simply learn solos and licks note for note; the expert step-by-step instructions featured here can be applied to your own individual style of playing to make you a better, more creative musician. Guthrie Govan has been playing guitar for all but three years of his life, and during that time he has played everything from jazz and blues to all-out metal. A member of noted prog-rock outfit Asia, he also plays with The Fellowship and instrumental trio Erotic Cakes. He also writes for Guitar Techniques magazine and teaches at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music.

 

INTRODUCTION

As a guitar teacher, I meet a lot of guitarists who have reached the same roadblock in their playing: they've had some playing experience, they know a bit of the traditional rock/blues vocabulary, they have a grasp of the basic techniques ...but they're frustrated. Some might express this frustration as 'I'm sure there's other stuff I could be practising; I wish I'd learned properly!' or, indeed, 'People say I play pretty well on a good night, but I feel like an impostor, because I don't really know what I'm doing.' If you've ever felt that all you ever practise is the same old stuff, playing it faster and cleaner but ultimately not coming up with anything new or anything you can get really excited about, then you might just like this book. It attempts to show you some new avenues to explore, by explaining some important aspects of theory or technique and looking at how you can incorporate such knowledge into your own playing style. I've tried to arrange this information so that it can be of value to as many players as possible. Theory-wise, I've explained things from first principles, so even if you have no grounding in theory, you'll be able to grasp the necessary concepts without undue suffering (although some concentration might be required from time to time!). In general, whenever you think a chapter has taken you out of your depth, it's probably best to put the book down for a while and spend some time assimilating what you've learned so far. This stuff is all meant to be used, so I would recommend incorporating each idea into your playing at your own pace. Conversely, those of you who already have some grounding in music theory could quite happily dip into these pages at random. Bear in mind, however, that some chapters might well be worth reading even if they appear to be covering stuff you've already learned. It never hurts to have more than one way of looking at things, and you never know, certain concepts might turn out to be more useful and far-reaching than you thought they were. The book is divided into five chapters, each with a different angle:

• In Chapter 1, 'General Stuff, I've tried to answer all of the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) that keep cropping up when I teach people. Some of it might seem a little too philosophical and weird to be of immediate use to you, but trust me, it's worth wading through, if only because it will raise some interesting questions about how and why you play certain things. There are times when simply thinking about your playing can improve it just as much as any amount of hours spent with a metronome.

• Chapter 2, 'Technique', takes an in-depth look at technique, focusing on developing efficiency of movement and making your playing feel as natural and effortless as possible.

• Chapter 3, 'Theory Without Tears', tries to simplify music theory, explaining some of the essential jargon, showing you how scales and chords fit together and touching on the much-feared topic of sight-reading. I can't lie to you - this won't be a fully comprehensive sight-reading course, but it will explain the basic principles and enable you to understand all of the written music in the book. (The rest, of course, is down to practice!)

• Chapter 4, 'Scales And Chords', translates music theory onto your fretboard, explaining a lot of the essential jargon and showing you how scales and chords fit together.

• Chapter 5, 'On The CD', lets you put all of the previous ideas into practice, with the help of various backing tracks. For each track, I've explained the chord progression, suggested a few appropriate note
