Guthrie Govan – Creative Guitar 1: Cutting-Edge Techniques
Mar 13 2016
The aim of Creative Guitar 1 is to help any rock guitarist who feels stuck in a rut. The book focuses on refining playing techniques, explaining the nuts and bolts of theory in an accessible manner, as well as how to practice efficiently, and even demonstrates lots of new licks.
This book promotes a self-sufficient approach to learning that will give guitarists new artistic directions in every aspect of their playing. The accompanying CD features detailed examples of pentatonic patterns, minor arpeggios and backing tracks so the guitarist can apply these instructions to their individual style of playing, helping them to become more creative musicians.
Guthrie Govan, who is also a regular contributor to Guitar Techniques magazine, and an immensely talented guitarist in his own right, has pulled out just about every stop in these two books. BTW a lot of Guitar Techniques back issues are available at “Magazines” category.
This is not so much a book full of licks an drills but a collection of essays about how to explore different topics related to guitar playing like creating your sound (distortion, reverb, eq, etc), music theory and how one could apply it in real life situations, refining your technique, coming up with new ideas by listening to other instruments and music styles.
Of course you also get quite some licks and a cd with the music examples plus some backing tracks. All in all a great book for guitarists who are technique-wise on an intermediate / advanced level but feel stuck in a rut when it comes to create some original-sounding stuff. Highly recommended.
