The 2nd edition of my own beginner to intermediate acoustic guitar method book "Guitar Mastery: A Rhythmic Approach to Acoustic Guitar, 2nd edition" is now available! This text book covers basic music theory, strumming, finger picking, and sight reading. There is a strong emphasis placed on understanding the fretboard through the CAGED system. This is the first title in the Guitar Mastery series, with others coming soon!
