I would say that thanks to this book, my guitar-playing has improved more in the fretboare 18 months than it has in any comparable period since I bought my Sigma acoustic guitar in Speaking for myself, Mr. Tagliarino’s objective in writing this workbookh Finally, after plugging away for 18 months on Barrett Tagliarino’s Guitar Fretboard WorkbookI’ve completed barrrett 59, yagliarino last in the book except for a “final project” he leaves you tagliaino at the endI can report on my experience with it.

I’m a hobby guitarist who belongs in that vast category usually termed “intermediate”. My training on the guitar consists of periods of instruction with four different private teachers for periods of between a month and a year each, and guigar I was able to pick up from those few people I’ve played music with over the years. In this I’m probably like the great majority of guitarists, and my knowledge of the instrument is accordingly patchy.

Indeed, my knowledge of music theory is probably better than most guitarists at my level of ability due to the fact that I had a friend who shared a lot of what he was learning when studying composition, plus I just like theory of any kind and seek it out.

Still, did I know exactly what an F-sharp minor 11th chord was, and could I construct it from scratch? Did I know exactly how to use the terms “major”, “minor”, “augmented”, bagrett “diminished” in their various contexts?


If I knew where the root note was on a string, could Freetboard quickly locate, say, the 6th for that scale? I can do those things now, and much else besides. Of course, over the years I had learned to play many things up the neck of the guitar, and had learned many chords and some scales. But what this workbook does is to complete that knowledge gained piecemeal, render it systematic, and synthesize it into a unity. As with any workbook, what you get out of it depends on what you’re willing to put into it.

The barreett makes use of a teaching technique that he has developed over years of personal instruction. It involves reading, writing, speaking, and playing. You not only do written exercises, but you speak out loud what you’re learning, and you say it while you’re playing it as well.

This multi-channeled learning approach causes you to advance faster.

Guitar Fretboard Workbook (Music Instruction)

I took my time, and would recommend that you do the same. When I found the content of a chapter to be new or overwhelming, I would stay with it and keep playing the exercises. It’s not about getting through the book, it’s about mastering the material; so be willing to paddle slowly. I suppose my dominant impression of this book is that it filled in gaps in my knowledge. I knew quite a few of the things the author was teaching, so I was able to move through those more quickly.

But even within those things I thought I knew there were gaps. I feel I have a much more seamless, complete knowledge of the instrument. Does that mean I play like Mark Knopfler now? But I have a greater calm and confidence in what I’m doing. And I’m able to do things like notice, in another guitar songbook, that a chord marked as diminished is actually a diminished 7th.

Dollar for dollar, this is the best money I’ve ever spent on guitar instruction. Jan 09, Narmin Isparzade rated it really liked it.

Before I started to read “Guitar Fretboard Workbook”, I would usually search for the tabs of my favourite songs online and start playing. Then I would encounter a difficulty and in a frustration from trying to understand how I could play it correctly, put my guitar aside. I came to realize that learning guitar by myself on trial and error takes too much time and decreases my confidence in mastering the guitar.

When I saw this book, I knew it was how I should be paving my way to guitar mastery. A Before I started to read “Guitar Fretboard Workbook”, I would usually search for the tabs of my favourite songs online and start playing. The book is intended for those who already have basic and pre-intermediate guitar knowledge; however, although I have taken a 6-week guitar course on coursera.

Overall, if you want to understand your fretboard well and know what you are playing at hand, Guitar Fretboard Workbook is a good book to check out but depending on your level prepare yourself to look for additional sources for the concepts explained in the book. My favourite quote from the book: What happens if you make a mistake? Chances are, you’re like a lab rat learning the correct path through a maze: Aug 27, Zevi rated it really liked it.


I always preferred learning the guitar from magazines rather than books. It always seemed books were out dated and wanted to teach you boring songs from the 20s and rarely discussed any advanced soloing techniques.

This book is pretty good for the advanced stuff, but to really learn the guitar you will need the book How to Become a Guitar Player from Hell by Jason Earls.

Boy, was I glad! Barrett Tagliarino structures the information effectively.

I did not finish all the work in this book as I’m currently taking lessons. I believe learning from this book prior to the lessons was one major reason I was able to make rapid progress in my lessons.

Barrett’s Reviews

Once these classes are done, I plan to spend ample time mastering these exercises and completing the book. In the end, it’s all cause and effect. How much you put into your guitar playing will determine how good you become. Mar 05, Michael rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hard to imagine a better introduction to the instrument. Builds a solid foundation for fretboard memorization, scales theory and practicechord construction, triads, arpeggios Oct 06, Mauro rated it liked it.

It’s a very interesting book with approaches tagiarino how we see the fretboard, but if you really want to understand the music theory behind it you’ll have to buy another book because on MY opinion the book lacks a lot information and sometimes gives you shortcuts of things that you can’t really grasp what they are.
