No other book teaches this region of the neck. It's often assumed you'll just sort of learn it on your own. The trouble is that there is little guidance out there to help you do that well, until now. This book focuses on learning to read standard guitar notation from the 9th fret to the 12th, and like Missing Method Books 1 and 2, it includes tons of practice songs, examples, clear explanations, and ample exercises, giving you everything you need to become fluid in playing in the 9th position!

Use this book in conjunction with other method books, by itself, with a teacher, or on your own.
