Free Online Guitar Software Tools
I developed a set of online tools to help the learning process. At first they have been created for my own music practice, but then I thought they were worth to share.

Free Scales and Chords Pdf Ebooks To Download
I created some free pdf ebooks in order to help students: "84 Guitar Scales And Arpeggios Patterns", in which you can learn a good amount of scales patterns in different shapes and fretboard positions. Major, harmonic minor, melodic, whole-tone, diminished, triads arpeggios are covered, with many other sequences and arpeggios types. "40 Exotic Guitar Scales Patterns" will teach you the strangest and most exotic sounds, showing you unusual musical sequences such as indian, arabian, byzantine, neapolitan, enigmatic, and others. On the "276 Guitar Chords" ebooks you can find different kinds of chords fingerings: open positions, movable shapes, triads, and many other. Finally, the "Chords Construction Theory" ebook will help you to learn that chords are not immutable shapes to memorize, but you can build them at fly assembling intervals in every part of the fretboard.
A little story about music theory, chords, scales, technique and music feelings:
Once Andres Segovia was sitting in silent as he watched Django Reinhardt improvise on some famous standard jazz tunes; he was so impressed that he asked Django where he could get the sheet music for those awesome tunes he had just played. Django is said to have replied "Oh I have never played from a piece of sheet music in my life, I just improvise".
I don't know if this conversation really happened, but it is a nice story of two great guitar players that will be remembered forever. To make this long story short, as Metallica would say, "eat, sleep, play guitar. Nothing else matters!"
