Book of the Week #1- "The Guitar Toolbox"
The Geetar Bookshop just had to start off this weekly spotlight with the first-born of Cal Williams Jr's books "The Guitar Toolbox". This book was begun in Whitby, North Yorkshire continued in Brittany,France and completed in Goodwood,South Australia. "The Guitar Toolbox" represents the foundation concept of Chord Families to allow students to create original chord progressions for songwriting and working out popular songs. This book also introduces Moveable Scales for jamming lead guitar solos in any musical style in any key. "The Guitar Toolbox" impressed Mel Bay USA enough to secure a worldwide publishing deal! You can purchase this amazing book online at or from Derringers Music, Harrison Music and Fretco Guitar Repairs in Adelaide, SA. Enjoy!
