A collection of articles about the guitar, GUITAR Mechanics contains information that will help guitarists towards a better understanding of their instrument. In turn this should help them to become better players. It also contains comprehensive listings of sources of strings, capos, picks and pickups. If you have ever wondered why music is constructed the way it is, or why the guitar and other stringed instruments are made the way they are, then this book is for you.

GUITAR Mechanics is also available from the US and German Amazon web sites. You do not need to own a Kindle to own and read this book, Amazon provide free readers for downloading (see left of the page for the above link) that run on PCs, Mac's, iPad's etc...
