behold, the Guitar Binder
if you are taking weekly jazz/blues/pop/beginning lessons, you must have one of these
solely dedicated to guitar lessons
(not for taking biology notes or writing down your favorite curry recipes)
Amazon page to three-ring binder
(doesn't have to be this one, but this one works)
-AND- it must contain the following items:
#1. Large chord diagram boxes (at least 20 copies, or 10 double-sided)
#2. Guitar fretboard diagrams (at least 10 copies, or 5 double-sided)
#3. Blank staff and tab paper (at least 10 copies, or 5 double-sided)
#4. Regular college-ruled paper for writing (at least 20 pages)
#5. BEGINNING-LEVEL STUDENTS ONLY: A copy of the Springboard music packet
#1-5 must be three-hole punched.
#6. All loose-leaf scores to go over in lessons and any handouts given in lessons
(avoid using as curry napkins until after the semester is over)
#7. A pencil - every lesson. Always.
(as my soprano wife says, "No pencil, no career!")
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
