★ Private memory techniques help to memorize scales and musical note positions on the guitar in 10 minutes 
★ Combine musical intervals, chords, arpeggios, key modes and practice mantras to let you play more freely on a fretboard 
★ Practical examples and licks enhance your playing techniques as well as the familiarity of scale graphics. 
We use the most effective memory technique; the concept of “Image Memorization Method" (according to experiences, it can be achieved in 10 minutes) can help your brain memorize scale graphics on the fretboard in a short time and also to teach you enhancing practices and methods of application.  In addition to stimulating your thinking of musical notes and fingerings on the fretboard, the most important thing is to help you be able to cleverly apply scales and chords as well as their matching via the familiarity of the fretboard. 
During performances, it is the main goal of this handbook that you know the scale positions where your fingers are located at any time.  
In addition, this second version handbook has more demonstrations than the first version as well as clearer and plenty of explanations.  In addition to the faster and efficient memory fretboard, the rich contents lively combine various kinds of practice as well as thinking methods.  And this better allows you to obtain great achievements in such as intervals, chords, arpeggios, key modes as well as musical concepts.  
If you── 
● Just want to play easy musical notes but you can never find the right positions, 
● Want to leave playing and singing along level but you cannot find the directions,  
● Want to improvise solo performances but you often get the musical notes wrong,  
● Encounter a situation where your hands slide to a different fret position then you don’t know how to play, 
● Have a bunch of fingerings which the more you memorize them the more you are confused, 
● Want to know more about the guitar, 
“Image Memory Methods” can fix all problems!

    Hamilton, the hip-hop rap musical, has revolutionized theater. It’s the story of an immigrant, “young, scrappy, and hungry,” who kicked off the Revolutionary War and built the central government of today. Within this book appears the musical’s backstory with many deeper insights. How do the Schuyler Sisters’ signature colors reveal their personalities? Which stage equipment best amplifies the themes? What of the words like “Satisfied” and “My Shot,” with so many double and triple meanings? Most importantly, we’ll explore how the show hauntingly echoes today’s political climate and hottest issues. As the musical extends a mirror of vibrant, diverse, passionate America, it captivates all who discover it.

    Arguably a pioneer of the French New Wave (with Ascenseur pour l’échafaud, 1957) Louis Malle went on to enjoy an acclaimed yet provocative and versatile transatlantic career. This collection of original essays proposes to reassess his richly eclectic and boldly subversive oeuvre and redress the surprising critical neglect it has suffered over the years. It does so through a combination of transversal and monographic analyses that use a variety of critical lenses and theoretical tools in order to examine Malle’s documentaries as well as his fiction features (and, more importantly, the constant shuttling and uniquely persistent cross-pollination between those two cinematic approaches), illuminate the profound, lasting dialogue his films entertained with literature and theater, bring to the fore their sustained, albeit often oblique autobiographical thrust along with their scathing sociopolitical critique, and scrutinize the alternating use of stars and non-professional actors.In addition, the volume features an exclusive interview with the acclaimed playwright John Guare (a close friend and collaborator of Louis Malle’s who scripted Atlantic City) and is bookended by a foreword by Volker Schlöndorff and an afterword by Wes Anderson, two renowned filmmakers who articulate their admiration for, and the seminal influence of, their predecessor.
