Hailing from the town of Bunker, Missouri, our hero emerged from ashes to beauty. Where would we, as guitarists be without Mel Bay? Just think- without this visionary, I would have never figured out to number my fingers, from fore finger to my pinky numerically 1 thru 4. Mel ingeniously reminded us it was only checkers and not chess.
Let me not even go into the side photo of the left-handed position and the "how to correctly hold the guitar with authority and substance." From tuning to chordal delights and inversions, as I asked before, "Where oh where would we be without him?" Ray and I are pleased to submit to you a very rare and much-respected book of knowledge for your approval. When Moses came down from Mt.Sinai with the Commandments, Mel was right there with him. Moses led the masses in Exodus from the darkness, so as Mel did for countless guitarists.
How would I ever have known of a B9 chordal module without the Master? This book is indeed a rare find and I know, I know- you're probably thinking how could Ray and I let this bodacious, benevolent, bonanza of enlightenment go for any price? Well, the answer to the riddle would be, 'cause a brother needs the duckets but, as the say in the car business, let us offer you a deal-sweetener. How 'bout we up the ante and throw in this janky-ass, 5-latch Lifton case in on the deal? I know- word on the street is, this case fits one of those new fangled Les Paul guitars from around 1959 or something. Ray tells me it come with the Excelsior key as an added bonus.
I heard it said that, "Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it."
Don't you see the brilliance here? You get the knowledge and the key. In a word, genius...
