The Vth Position offers an innovative and revolutionary new approach to the problem of sight-reading on the guitar.
For decades the guitarist has been taught to start in first position when sight-reading and slowly work their way up the fingerboard into the upper positions. The problem with this approach is that it is confusing, awkward and uninspiring. The solution is to master the optimal position on the guitar, but what position is truly optimal? All my professional experience and research has pointed towards the fifth position. As such, this book will guide you to becoming a proficient sight-reader in the fifth position, thereby opening the door to confidence in most performance situations where sight-reading is a necessity.
The book contains reading and rhythm exercises of varying difficulty as well as songs, scales, modes, blues examples, arpeggios, non-traditional chord charts, and a new innovative approach to using the metronome.
