The Way Music Works

You’ll find everything guitarists need to know to identify the notes on the staff and where they fall on the fretboard, understand rhythmic notation, build scales and chords, and more—the tools that make it easier to learn and understand music!Please note: We pack and ship each order lovingly by hand.
