August is here, which means it's time for another Chasing Sound Book Club giveaway. If you missed out on the first two contests don't worry, because this month I have another awesome book to give away.
This month you can win a copy of Berklee's A Modern Method For Guitar: Volumes 1-3. It's the whole set of beginner guitar greatness in one big book!
Here's what I had to say about the book in my best guitar books post:
Once you're done warming up, you should open up Berklee's Modern Method for Guitar by William Leavitt. If you've never heard of the Berklee School of Music in Boston yet, it's a very popular music school that has had students like Steve Vai, Dream Theater, John Mayer, and many more.
The Modern Method for Guitar can be purchased in individual volumes, but you can find the complete set for a decent price online. These books are great for working on your sight reading and for learning music theory on guitar.
Learning theory and how to sight read will really change your life. It's so beneficial when trying to learn an instrument, and can lead to many opportunities down the road. These books make it fun and easy to tackle something new every day.
If you're just starting out on the guitar, see how long you can stay away from tab (this book does not have any). Tab isn't a bad thing, but being able to play a sheet of music that's put in front of you, and knowing all the theory that goes behind it will help make you a better player.
