“I just wanted to say thanks for making this book. It was the first “interactive” ebook I’ve read and it was great.

Learning what’s in those pages boosted my confidence to pick up an instrument and play.

I play bass and I know some beginning bass players think all that chord talk only applies to guitar and piano. Make sure you let them know that’s absolutely not the case.”

“Love the aural examples and I know students will love the simple language that is used taking them through step by step, catering for different learning styles.

I also love the songs you’ve made reference to as kids just love these songs and make the whole thing manageable and easier to grasp.”

Elliot Lipins

“I felt like I knew a lot of this stuff having played guitar for many years, but the book really drove home how essential the simple “I IV V vi” concepts are.

I’ve been guilty of writing sad songs in all minor keys, but now I’m looking forward to simplifying the chord structure of my songs while getting it “right” with the information from the book.”

— Elliot Lipins, New York

Casey Mathews

“I just read through the book, but I’m sure I’ll be going back many times.

It was very entertaining, and informative without getting bogged down in music theory.

I think the book was great for conveying an amazing truth in music.”
