“One of the most challenging aspects of learning any instrument – particularly the guitar – is knowing exactly where you can get good, solid, accurate advice and decent learning materials from. In short, you need someone that you can trust! If they also happen to be a professional musician who runs their own school, records albums and plays regularly live, all the better!

Marc Galea does all these things and more! I have personally known him for many years now and I always thoroughly enjoy visiting his school in Malta and doing workshops, gigs and masterclasses for him. He is totally passionate about all things guitar related and has worked tirelessly to get to where he is today. It is this passion and drive that has made him the perfect person to write the book that you now hold in your hands. In it he covers pretty much everything you need to learn in order to become a competent modern guitarist.

I just wish that I had been given access to this much information when I was first starting out!

Enjoy your musical journey, and above all – Have fun with it…”

“I first met Marc Galea when he was a teenage guitarist taking his RGT grade exams. It was clear at the time that he had both a passion and talent for guitar, and I was pleased to see him progress over the years – gaining his LLCM Teaching Diploma and then being awarded a Fellowship in guitar performance. I understand that Marc has gone onto develop a thriving guitar school in Malta, so that he can share his knowledge and enthusiasm for guitar with guitar students on the island. Marc has now combined his experience of performing and teaching guitar by compiling this very comprehensive book; an ambitious and challenging project, which must have taken much effort and time on his part, but one which I’m sure will be appreciated by not only his own students but also by any other budding guitar players who have the dedication to study its wide-ranging contents.”
