From the Author:

As a guitarist and guitar teacher, for over 25 years, I was always looking for a book that would teach chords, scales, arpeggios and the music theory behind them in a fun, useful and musical format. Since I could not find one for my students, I decided to write one myself. Ultimate Guitar Chords, Scales & Arpeggios Handbook is the product of these efforts and is designed for Beginner through Advanced guitarists.

The following materials (in 1, 2, and 3 Octaves with fingerings and music theory) are covered in the 285 pages of this book:

  • Major Chords, Scales, Arpeggios, Theory and Modes
  • Minor Chords, Scales, Arpeggios, Theory and Modes
  • The Blues & Pentatonic Scales, plus 7th Chords & Arpeggios
  • Advanced Concepts (for example, 9th, 11th, and 13th Chords & Arpeggios)
  • Chromatic Scales & Advanced / Exotic Scales
  • 15 Free Play-Along Videos to improve improvising and musicality
You might also find this book useful and fun, if you are a:
  • Guitarist (from beginner to professional / advanced level), who would like to improve your technique, creativity, musical vocabulary, and music theory and fretboard understanding.
  • Guitar Teacher, who is looking for material to teach your students about chords, scales, arpeggios, music theory, the notes of the guitar neck, fretboard theory, technique, songwriting, and improvising / building guitar solos.
  • Songwriter, who would like to expand your creativity and the variety of chords, melodies, and textures in your songs.
  • Teacher, who would like to play the guitar in the classroom and improve your technique, creativity, and understanding of the guitar.
  • Parent, who would like your children to learn how to play the guitar.
  • Musician, who would like to add the guitar to the instruments you know how to play.

Review:

"Damon is an extraordinary composer, but he is also a shredder. I have had some very revealing conversations with him about his secrets. This book ["Guitar Scales Handbook"] now makes Damon's experience available to any and all. It covers the basics and then goes on to a unique approach to advanced scales." William Anderson, Music Professor and Professional Guitarist

"Damon Ferrante has written a clear and comprehensive book about scales ["Guitar Scales Handbook"]. I know him as an accomplished composer and guitarist, and this book is a wonderful step-by-step guide to scales and their application. Helpful for the beginner or advanced guitarist. Oren Fader, Music Professor and Professional Guitarist

"Damon Ferrante is more than an outstanding guitar teacher; he is also a conservatory-trained composer of important new music. He brings to this book a deep, lived, knowledge of the theory and practice of Western harmony--he has taken apart and re-assembled musical 'sense' in a thousand ways as performer, teacher, and composer. The result is this book, a refreshingly clear, uncluttered approach to chords and scales on the guitar." Robert Battistini, Professor and Music Writer

"Within a few hours the beginning student will make rapid progress into this book and learn about root notes and major, minor, augmented, and diminished chord structures. Coming from a talented multi-instrument musician, music teacher and composer, the book is a very clear approach for learning how to play acoustic or electric guitar." Jon Acheson, Educator

"I really love this book! As a kid when I was first learning, the chord charts were often difficult to decipher and confusing. Damon's approach to this is so much more direct and easy to grasp. This all translates really well for any guitar player, whether it be a beginner who's getting used to the instrument or a more advanced player. Damon's videos are excellent, too. This is just an excellent tool to have on you as a player. It's comprehensive, detailed, and all-in-all, really fun!" Sean Kelly, Guitarist for A Fragile Tomorrow
