Guitar Buddy . . .

Guitar Buddy is the only fun, easy and highly effective method for quickly learning to play the great sounding guitar music of our day and age. This MUSIC BOOK is a radical departure from and innovative improvement on the scores of dry textbooks traditionally bought by beginning and intermediate guitarists.

The concept is simple: an informative, entertaining book of GREAT SOUNDING MUSIC to play is the most important tool anyone studying Music can have. In this way students quickly gain first hand experience and discover the delight of making excellent sounding Music. That?s what every guitar book claims to be, and should be all about. Unfortunately, method books are just lifeless clones of each other teaching you how to name the notes on strings one two and three and senselessly beating these strings to the count of four.

The guitar is taken up out of a desire to make music. Quickly learning how to play good sounding guitar music which is both fun and full sounding is exactly what guitar players want. The author, Mr. Karl Aranjo is a graduate of Boston?s prestigious Berklee College of Music and accomplished professional guitarist. This book is based on his years of musical experience and extensive training in the fields of music, music education and psychology.

Guitar Buddy gives great sounding results and keen insights into the actual craft of learning and making music while being fun and entertaining. Those who study this method will discover the joy of playing guitar music. Guitar Buddy beautifully accomplishes what no other guitar book ever has. This is the book you need, want and deserve.

From The Author . .

There’s a great old saying that goes like this: “If you give someone a fish he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” For me, as a teacher, it means this: show someone a song and they play it for a few weeks, show someone how music works and they can play forever. This book teaches you how guitar music works.

In recent history music education has become a highly developed art. The book you?re holding is the first and only guitar book written from the perspective of someone who has devoted himself to and understands this beautiful art. Guitar Buddy puts you in touch with the music maker inside of you, waiting to be awakened.

Consider this an invitation to leaf through the pages of this book. You?ll see incredibly clear user friendly graphics, no nonsense text, and printed music with accompanying TAB. It?s easy to see that Guitar Buddy is in a class all by itself and not simply another Book One which looks like the other Book One right next to it. This is an incredibly well thought out and highly developed learning system. A system written for you, the student with a desire to really learn.

On the companion C.D. are nearly 100 recorded examples of the highest quality. These tracks are all done with the sound of a full band to get you immediately into the game, playing and making real music from day one.

This learning system also contains an exciting new technology called the Music Acquisition Device. All musical works are made up of smaller parts or phrases which are then combined into songs. The Music Acquisition Device shows you how these pieces and how they fit together. This breaks guitar music down into fun, easy, great sounding play along tracks which you?ll love to listen to and chime in with.

One of the secrets to being an excellent teacher is putting people in touch with our musical history. There is a simple reason some music survives through the ages; its greatness. By playing and processing this musical greatness you’ll progress in leaps and bounds instead of one note or one string at a time like traditional guitar books would have you believe. Contained in the pages of this system are cool Rock licks, chord tricks, hot Blues, Folk songs and themes from Classical masterpieces. Search no more, this is the book you need, want and deserve.

Testimonials

“My first experience with the guitar was taking lessons from Karl Aranjo as a high school student. His lessons were more than just a collection of tips and riffs: they were a method. As I look through GuitarU.com, I get to take a trip back through those lessons and am reminded about I loved about them. His strong focus on the fundamentals quickly draws a connection between general music theory and the particulars of how that theory can be applied to the guitar, even allowing us as guitarists to use our instrument as an abacus-like tool to enhance our musical insight. In high school, Karl’s lessons got me up to speed to jam with my friends and in the school band almost immediately. In the almost 20 years since I left high school and had my last lesson with Karl, the things he taught me have continued to serve me well; I’ve played almost continuously in a variety of styles (jazz, rock, funk, folk), both as a hobby and as a part-time professional (currently playing with San Francisco’s Smash-Up Derby). If I hadn’t grown up in the same town as where Karl taught, I might have missed out on a lifetime of fun playing the guitar. With GuitarU.com, wherever you are, you can benefit from the same quality instruction that I had!

-Grahm Ruby

“Mr. Karl Aranjo is one great teacher to work with. When working with him, he is very flexible, and will teach you all the basics and fundamentals you will need while learning how to play the guitar. From learning basic chords to crazy licks and solo’s. You will become an expert in no time and looking like a professional guitar player. In my experience, I learned to master chord progressions much easier and understand it in a better perspective. In my music career/hobby, it has given me nothing but success to play in a band as a front man/rhythm guitarist, compose my own type of music, and as well as songs that I really wanted to learn how to play on the guitar. Learning through Karl Aranjo was a great experience and has helped me understand the guitar a lot easier, I would not have wanted this learning experience any other way.”

-Julius Isaac

“I had the pleasure of being a guitar student of Karl’s for several years. Karl advanced my playing ability a great deal very quickly by giving me a perfect combination of guitar technique, theory and assigning songs that motivated me to continue learning. I highly recommend Karl for all level of guitar players no matter if you are a beginner or advanced.”
