Now, I know that I’ve been writing a lot about my Kindle books (There may be a new one out as early as this weekend!), and putting a lot of focus here on music business and personal productivity. But there’s been a bit of a slip on the guitar postings here. (Mind you there has been weekly output for tone postings and lessons on Guitar-Muse but that’s quibbling; ) )
The Fiverr Challenge
Some of you may have remembered that GOOFY “book-in-a-month club” challenge last year which actually yielded quite a list of guitar books at the end of last year. After contacting someone on Fiverr (where every service starts at $5) about a cover, I looked around the site for a while and had a brief moment of inspiration. I realized that I have produced a number of large scale books but nothing small. I asked myself, “Could I get a short instructional book written to put up on Fiverr by the end of this weekend?”
So I put up a services ad on Fiverr yesterday. Here’s the ad. The text of it is pretty simple:
“… I’ve also come up with a unique way to break out of the blues box shape you may be stuck in! For $5, I’ll send a 60+ page pdf that will show you how to use 4 unique shapes to help you visualize the pentatonic scale anywhere on the guitar! Better yet, this visualization method can be applied to ANY scale or mode!”
- how to visualize pentatonic minor scales on the fingerboard positionally
- how to use the scales over different tonal centers
- 1-string patterns
- Cool ways to sequence the melodic cells with combinatorics and…
- Pentatonic harmony (Worth the price of admission alone)
In other words, it’s a series of short succinct lessons to get under your fingers to start playing but with enough meat on their bones to keep you busy for a while.
As always, thanks for reading!
PS – This pdf has a major update so if you’re willing to spend $5 more on a pdf (or $15 for a book) – you’ll get a really great deal!
My Pentatonic Visualization Book
is 100 + pages of licks and instruction and includes demonstrations and breakdowns of two-string fingerings, diagonal pentatonics, sweep picking pentatonics, pentatonic harmony and much more! It’s not just 40 more pages – it’s a complete overhaul of the material!
It’s available here.
