The Story
"Learn How To Transcribe For Guitar" is a complete guide to transcribing for guitarists, including everything you need to know to begin learning how to play - and write down - the music you love to hear. A thorough training manual, "Learn How To Transcribe For Guitar" also teaches the most important lesson of all: how to teach yourself. This is the only book of its kind on the market today, and is a required textbook for The National Guitar Workshop's "Play By Ear" course.

Features include: tips from some of the world's greatest transcribers, how to transcribe rhythms, single-note lines and chords, music theory, ear-training, alternate tunings, equipment and much more, and a CD giving you practical transcribing experience including single-note examples and a live band.

Guitar music is composed of three basic elements: notes, rhythms and techniques. This book will help you learn to recognize these building blocks of music, how to reproduce them on your instrument and, finally, how to notate them. That's what transcribing is all about.
