Hanon for Guitar:  Inside Out

Hanon Sampler

Make it a lucky Friday the 13th with FREE guitar books!

Free Download Weekend!

Our new Master the Classics book, Hanon for Guitar: Inside Out, is now available for Kindle on Amazon. This weekend (August 17-18), you can pick it up for FREE! Inside Out takes the classic Hanon piano exercises and adapts them for guitar in just about every conceivable layout.

Once the free weekend is over, Inside Out will retail for just $3.99. I guarantee you that no other Hanon for guitar book has this much material in it — even at twice that price.

If you’re not sure what the Hanon deal is all about, check out our 99¢ Hanon Sampler. In 17 quick pages, you will find:  an explanation of what the Hanon exercises are and why they can supercharge your guitar chops; a tab of Exercise #1; a brief explanation of intervals and tabbed interval studies (3rds through 7ths); and an intro to Exercises #2-20 (which are covered in full in Inside Out).

Hanon Sampler is also free over the weekend. Whether you’re a beginner looking for material to build foundational technique, or an advanced player looking for great rut-busting melodic development, the Hanon exercises will add another dimension to your playing.

You don’t need to know any theory to use these books (or any of our books), just how to read tab! With our easy-to-follow methods, you’ll pick up the theory as you go along, without any studying, just playing!

So what are you waiting for? Go get the Hanon books now, while they’re free, check them out, leave a review on the Amazon pages!

Hanon Doubleheader for Kindle!

This week, we’ll be releasing two books based on the classic Hanon Exercises for piano.

The main book, Hanon for Guitar: Inside Out, features tab for the first 20 exercises. What’s more, we take Exercise #1, and expand it for the full range of the guitar neck, and show you how to work the exercise with various two- and three-string shapes, adjacent string pairs, position playing, changing key signatures, and much more! Scales, intervals, legato, economy/sweep picking are all covered, in over 100 pages of tab and analysis. The Kindle book features a link that you can use to access a free PDF version and audio files! Literally hundreds of hours’ worth of practice material at your fingertips, for far less than the price of a single guitar lesson!

The second book is an introductory sampler to Inside Out, and will give you a taste of what to expect from that book. In addition, the Hanon Sampler features interval studies that you can use and apply right away! Links to come this week, and free downloads for both books this weekend! Stay tuned!
