They say that if you want to live a long and happy life, don't support Newcastle United. Have you cringed whilst watching the likes of Emmanuel Riviere and Luuk de Jong trying to justify at least part of their colossal wages? Have you sat scratching your head, wondering why Moussa Sissoko and Gabriel Obertan are having as much effect on the match as... well... Florian Thauvin and Amdy Faye? Have you found yourself waggling a finger in your ear because you can't believe what actually came out of Alan Pardew's mouth? Then this is the book you've been waiting for! Join me as I lead you on a journey through another hall of shame littered with players who were paid far too much and gave the fans far too little in return. I'll answer questions such as 'What was Kenny Sansom's best moment in black and white', 'Who was the most 'Pardewed' player in the 2010s', 'How did Newcastle lose nine of their ten professional penalty shoot-outs' and 'How did Newcastle get someone to pay 30m for Moussa Sissoko' (actually, nobody knows the answer to that last question). If you need an antidote to the many times Newcastle United have ever let you down and made you think 'We'll laugh about this 7-3 defeat in a few years', then this book will go a long way to healing those wounds.

Designed as a complete method, a study philosophy, a practice log, and an encyclopedia, The Guitarist's Palette explores the seven diatonic modes and their relationship to the fretboard. Using a four-step practice method, you'll be guided by a simple single-string major scale through seven six-string scale forms and advanced superimpositions. Rather than focusing on visual representations alone, ear training-based exercises teach the relationships between scales, chord tones, and tensions. "It is important to remember that The Guitarist's Palette contains knowledge that you can apply to music in general, rather than specific dialects of particular genres. Because of this universality, there are no style-specific lessons. Instead, the book thoroughly maps out the different tones (or colors) on the fretboard in a harmonic context. These approaches can then be modified using melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic ideas. This method could be utilized just as effectively by a speed metal shredder, a harmonically daring jazz improviser, or a note-efficient folky." - Page 10 Guitarists using the book should already be familiar with modes, intervals, basic chords, and seventh chords. The Guitarist's Palette can be used as a self-teaching guide or as a method book for instructors.
