Remove the guesswork. Know Your Fretboard. Master Note Reading beyond the open position.

Many guitar methods touch on note reading in the open position, but that's where it ends. This leaves most guitarists having to figure out the rest of the fretboard on their own, which can be tedious, time-consuming, and downright frustrating. But not anymore.

Master the 5th Position and Unlock Your MusicianshipThis second book in the note reading series focuses exclusively on learning to read standard notation in the middle region of the neck. Whether you've already been playing guitar for a while or have just completed the first book in the series, Missing Method 2 will help you take your understanding and mastery of the fretboard to new heights.Discover the Power of Note ReadingLike all Missing Method books, when we say "mastery" we mean it.
