All right, I'm still joking, but this book IS GOOD. It's a necessary compliment to Erich's system and anyone who wants a thorough understanding of music reading.
When I heard of this book, I instantly bought it with no hesitation. His method of communication and his system WORKS! Now, this book isn't like the normal book you would pick up at the music store. You won't find tons of songs and sheet music with little explanation. In fact, it is the opposite: lots of explanation. You will still have to go out and find some sheet music to practice on, a lot of sheet music. However, this book will give you all the tools you will need to read any musical notation. Overall, his explanations are very clear, almost like you have a patient friend sitting there explaining things to you. The pictures are extremely helpful.
Why am I so adamant about Erich in general? Simply, his method works and his explanations make sense. I first learned of Erich Andreas through his youtube videos ([...] which readily convinced me that Erich's style of teaching is a perfect fit for me. Almost immediately I turned to his Unstoppable Guitar System ([...] Recently, I had to do some training out of town, so I decided to swing by a local music store for a lesson. I explained to the teacher I was mainly self-taught with online videos and with a little less than a month's time practicing. The teacher was amazed. He asked me twice how long I had been practicing, stating my progress was remarkable. He said normally people who are self taught over shoot their cords, don't curl their fingers, etc. I don't say that to brag. It's all because of the hard work you see here. Hope this helps.
The book is well written, succinct and follows a logical progression as it moves you along the path to reading music. Even if you have never had any instruction in music before, this book will give a huge helping hand. I think it is just what I needed as a refresher course and I will continue to refer to it as I practice, practice, practice the skills I once had mastered. The linked table of contents makes navigation easy in this one.
With little fluff and a lot of great information, this short is helping me and I'm sure it will help you as well. If you have a genuine desire to learn how to read music, and you faithfully practice what you learn here, this is the book to get you started. A solid 4 3/4 stars from me.
Though the content is valuable, what jumped out at me is that Andreas is a musical business man and is selling a system. I thought the hyperlinks that periodically asked for "Five Star Reviews" were kind of cheesy. I think Andreas's method is probably good enough that his readers will catch on without the ads and will want to explore the other materials he offers.
Read this book for the content explaining musical concepts. Skip over the pleas for reviews and the music method sales info and you'll get your money's worth.
