Shades of Play

An inspiring read for anyone who wants to become a guitar player... or like me...has one sitting in the corner collecting dust and crying out..."play me"!!!

I can speak from experience about the frustrations of trying to learn to play the guitar...I found it to be overwhelming and confusing....tabs and chords with more than one letter/number inevitably created a Yamaha Dust Bunny!

Shades of Play gives you the knowledge you need up acquire the perfect guitar...or to dust off the one you already have...

Bill and Mark have created a book with experience...wisdom...and a touch of whimsy...that takes you step by the right get you to your goal of becoming a "guitar player"... In whatever venue you choose...whether its by the campfire or on the stage!

Shades of Play is the ultimate beginners guide...!!!

Shades of Play

Excellent read that has rekindled my lust for the guitar and my desire to be a better musician . I am a novice to intermediate player ( 5 drinks and I'm Awesome dude!) , this book has me re-evaluating my goals and raising the bar! BRAVO Bill and Mark!!

Shades of Play

It's the "Wealthy Barber" for guitar players and visionaries of a pleasant future, one surrounded by long-necked beauties. Great advice cloaked in entertaining anecdotes. I am buying copies for my posse and booking the concert tour tomorrow. Can you write a sequel for drummers? Hurry!
