Plus Software and book to provide you with interval combinations to expand your playing style tp the next level.


A complete method, logical, providing a tool to overcome physical limits medante enforcement techniques of modern design without neglecting the traditional harmonic-melodic and consolidated system, the deepening of interval permutations arising from the primary scales and viewing it on your keyboard, let seek solutions and build sound, inter alia with the help of software that, for those who wish, it would also be able to go further ... Highly recommended for guitarists who are not afraid of modern adventure!

If you are among those who love the research, if you want to bring a high level knowledge of your keyboard, if you look for new solutions melody, in short if you are willing to engage seriously on the guitar, this book is for you. Marco de Cave, whose attitude "scientific" I could appreciate several years ago, has done a great job in these pages, disclosing the possibility of dislocation of scales and arpeggios, these forms from two to seven sounds, expanding opportunities noise by the reversal of heights. The result is happy and music, supported by impeccable graphics that allows even non-readers make use of it. Such is the validity of the project deserve to be taken into consideration in its musical side, even by non-guitarists. Congratulations to Mark.

Cave de Marco called me to let me have this book and am very happy I decided to write a comment on her work. First of all I remember Mark, in the years when she studied with me as a very curious and intelligent a passion for knowledge, after a few years and in front of this impressive work not only confirm my idea, but I make great compliments to Marco for the depth with which he has addressed all the arguments and the passion he has put in conceive of this work. Certainly not work for everyone, but for guitarists who want to do an advanced search on your instrument, both melodic harmonica in this book are an infinite study material.

In this book of guitar technique advanced, Marco de Cave gives details of his theories.

This book is full of illustrative diagrams and is accompanied by a CD-ROM with all examples (complete audio and bases for exercise) of licks in the text.

Techniques outlined in Guitar Quantum is based on a new way to display the guitar with a point of view "geometric."

After having discussed how to expand "mentally" geometry of the keyboard, Mark guides us through what we might call a "conceptual simplification" in the construction of the guitar patterns, from those represented by the more familiar major scales and their arpeggios.

The ultimate goal of this book is to provide a variety of techniques, thinking and executive, to help the "guitarist of the 23 st Century" (as the subtitle) to develop their own paths melodic going beyond the usual concepts of the box and position.

This book is therefore intended to guitarists 'brave', wishing to explore new territories in which up to expand their creativity.

  1. This sounds interesting. Do you have any more information about the contents or approach? There seems to be very little about this on the web.

    Is it just about finding new patterns from scalar material or does he have a whole intervallic approach as the blurb suggests? The examples in the demo video are techically interesting but they don't sound very original in terms of actual musical material. Some of the stuff he plays on the vid in this post, though, sounds potentially interesting.

    The site you link to has his software, which I'm struggling to understand (as a non-Italian-speaker) and doesn't have much about the book except what you've quoted. Is there another web site for the book, a sample chapter or a detailed review somewhere?
