In The New Guitarscape, Kevin Dawe argues for a re-assessment of guitar studies in the light of more recent musical, social, cultural and technological developments that have taken place around the instrument. The author considers that a detailed study of the guitar in both contemporary and cross-cultural perspectives is now absolutely essential and that such a study must also include discussion of a wide range of theoretical issues, literature, musical cultures and technologies as they come to bear upon the instrument. Dawe presents a synthesis of previous work on the guitar, but also expands the terms by which the guitar might be studied. Moreover, in order to understand the properties and potential of the guitar as an agent of music, culture and society, the author draws from studies in science and technology, design theory, material culture, cognition, sensual culture, gender and sexuality, power and agency, ethnography (real and virtual) and globalization. Dawe presents the guitar as an instrument of scientific investigation and part of the technology of globalization, created and disseminated through corporate culture and cottage industry, held close to the body but taken away from the body in cyberspace, and involved in an enormous variety of cultural interactions and political exchanges in many different contexts around the world. In an effort to understand the significance and meaning of the guitar in the lives of those who may be seen to be closest to it, as well as providing a critically-informed discussion of various approaches to guitar performance, technologies and techniques, the book includes discussion of the work of a wide range of guitarists, including Robert Fripp, Kamala Shankar, Newton Faulkner, Lionel Loueke, Sharon Isbin, Steve Vai, Bob Brozman, Kaki King, Fred Frith, John 5, Jennifer Batten, Guthrie Govan, Dominic Frasca, I Wayan Balawan, Vicki Genfan and Hasan Cihat ter.

The minor pentatonic scale is the most crucial in a guitarist's arsenal, but all too often we learn a box pattern or two and leave it at that, limiting ourselves to cliched licks and run of the mill phrasing. This book, with information presented in a clear, simple and logical manner, sets the aspiring lead guitarist free from tedious and unwieldy box patterns and helps you unleash your potential all over the fretboard! The major scale is the root of all theory and harmony, but many guitarists are intimidated by the jargon that surrounds the scale and its associated modes. In Pt. 2 of this book, the major scale is deconstructed and demystified and the modes of the major scale unlocked. Your playing will never be the same after you've absorbed the rhythm and lead patterns this book contains! Take the step and revolutionise your playing today!
