Note > We are very sorry about the high shipping costs to outside of the USA since the beginning of the pandemic. Our experience with several lost THRAK Scorebooks going to Europe/Asia led us to the decision to ship only with good tracking systems. The costs for this are substantial and beyond our control. We hope to remedy this in the near future.
Touch guitar freak and music coach Trey Gunn (King Crimson, TU, KTU, Quodia, 3Below) draws from his performing and recording catalog for this pioneering book. Notated down to the fine details, this collection will open doors for any tapping musician, or for those curious about how this music is constructed.

"This book is a must have for all touch guitarists, whether they live in the progressive music world or just want tips on some great techniques. The score to Trey's part on The ConstruKCtion of Light is, alone, worth the price. (Good golly, I'm still trying to learn all the intricacies of that, and I play it every night!)" – Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Paul Simon)
