Aloha. from. Maui…… which book should I start out with for. DADGAD. guitar… I have been playing guitar for 20 years…. rhythm. and back up…..thank you

Hi Sharon,
Thanks for getting in touch. The Beginner’s Guide To DADGAD will probably be of interest- while it does start out with the most basic chords and simple ear training you will find more advanced ideas, substitutions and jazzy chord ideas in the later chapters. I also offer lessons over Zoom if you’d like some dedicated help!
