This site describes how to play a 7-string guitar tuned in major thirds in various styles of music. It will eventually develop into the multi-media equivalent of an instructional book on harmony, scales, and technique. Some advice on equipment is included as well. A light-hearted introduction, and certainly a more entertaining version, is available at M3 Guitar Version 1.0, which I put online in October 2001. Both versions are entirely free, with no adds or banners of any kind, and I intend to keep it that way.
The M3 Guitar Version 2.0 is divided into three main sections, as indicated by the menu on the left.
Joining the M3 -- essentials about tuning and equipment
Noteworthy -- music theory, presented in a visual way as far as possible
Onboard the M3 -- technique, fretboard mechanics, exercises, and transcriptions
There is a link to the first version of M3 Guitar in the menu at the top. The About page allows you to keep track of the changes and additions I make as the site evolves, and for a bit of extra information about what I am up to you can follow me on Twitter (low traffic, a single-digit number of messages per month, all related to music).
It is my hope that through these webpages I can to some extent convey the elegant logic and the beautiful symmetry that the M3 produces. Thank you for your time and enjoy your visit!
