Our Philosophy: Explain how the instrument works, show the capabilities of the hand, and paint an overall picture of the necessary chords, scales and techniques. Then give real-life "hands-on" examples of how to make the sounds that you hear on recordings. I don't believe that it is necessary to read music to possess a powerful, diverse, inventive guitar style. What you need to know is the inside story, the universal language of guitar which allows you to truly understand and develop any style that you choose.

Our Commitment From The Start: To develop a full line of books and tapes for the guitarist who wants to know the most important facts straight from the shoulder. Then, step by step, be presented with a complete overview until your journey ends at the finer points of modern guitar technique. You arrive without all the hassles of formal lessons.

It All Started with my first full length book: The Heavy Guitar Bible (12 Chapters, 106 pages). I produced and published it independently, so we made no compromise on content or quality. After the Bible came off the press, Guitar Player Magazine called it: "exceptionally clear and highly imaginative. The book's informational contents pertaining to the electric guitar are concise and well conceived."
