What students are saying
"This is an outstanding training/reference book on Co5ths! It’s extremely well-written and beautifully illustrated, with the contents presented in a logical and easy-to-understand format.
Ry is an exceptional guitarist and a terrific teacher as well. You’ll find a TON of value from buying this book which, by the way, is also very reasonably priced!
Highly, highly recommended resource for any guitarist!"
Adam Price, USA
"In the last three years, I have truly tried every instructor out there. I bookmarked all the sites, watched all the videos, and have suffered through dozens of poorly taught explanations on everything from intervals to modes.
Ry Naylor's instructional courses are the easy-to-digest and motivating content I was looking for, and 'The Guitarist's Guide to the Circle of Fifths' has been an absolute game-changer.
The theory is simple to understand, the visuals are clear and engaging, and guess what? It makes you want to play! The Circle of Fifths guide unlocks WAY more playing concepts than I thought it would.
Highly recommended for all guitarists, regardless of experience."
Adam Garel-Frantzen, USA
"Ry has successfully dissected the circle of fifths for the guitarist. He peels the layers of the circle like an onion and shows the relationship between note, chord, and key. The important thing to note here, is that Ry gives you practical applications to use the circle of fifths on your continuing guitar journey.
This is detailed and well illustrated with those characteristic excellent diagrams. My advice is to buy it and learn to unlock the DNA structures of guitar music."
Gordon Lynch, UK
"I thought I was pretty familiar with the Circle of Fifths (and couldn't imagine what you could have to say about it for 183 pages!), but I'm finding new insights in each section of the book, especially the more advanced concepts in Part 2.
As always, the diagrams are beautiful and helpful, and I really appreciate the "Test Your Knowledge" sections. Highly recommended."
Leisha Cook, USA
"I love Ry Naylor's books as they are so well constructed and the infographics are superb in conveying musical information in an easy-to-understand way.
The 'Guitarist's Guide to The Circle of Fifths' is another fabulous example of how to explain musical concepts in an engaging and exciting way. I have started the book and enjoying what I have read so far and I can't wait to get stuck into the meat of it and get my head around how useful the Circle of Fifths can be.
All Ry's books are excellent, and his new book is no exception I am really happy to add it to my collection of his books."
Michelle Deeprose-Dent, UK
"I have bought many books on The Circle of Fifths, but this is the first time it has been explained in a way that I could understand, I cannot recommend this too highly."
Graham Ellis, USA
"The Guitarists Guide To The Circle Of Fifths is absolutely awesome. The detailed theoretical information, the superb graphics, and the print layout, in general, is brilliant.
Ry explains even the smallest fact in complete, concise, yet understandable detail. I consider this recent release to be of tremendous value, both financially and practically, to any guitar/music student, and would definitely recommend its’ purchase."
Phil James, South Wales, UK
"It’s all here, perfectly clear laid out insight into chords, scales, intervals, chord progressions, even a comprehensive way to study modes. All very well structured and built up from the basics of music theory using the circle of fifths.
It’s the kind of course I wish I had when I started playing guitar, you don’t really need anything else to make music. But I’m also very glad I picked it up now as it is an invaluable reference and Ry has a very clear way of structuring and presenting all the material which makes it all much easier to digest.
Also, offering examples and ways to explore and learn the vast amount of information found in the circle. I already knew a lot of it, but I was still astounded by the sheer amount of useful information.
This one is going up on my wall for sure!"
