Guitar Zero : The Science of Learning to be Musical Paperback


On the eve of his fortieth birthday, renowned cognitive scientist Gary Marcus decided to fulfil a lifelong dream and learn to play the guitar.

He had tried many times before - failing miserably. This time, he decided to use the tools of his "trade" to see if he might suceed.

On his quest he jams with twelve-year-olds and takes master classes with guitar gods.

A groundbreaking exploration of the allure of music, Guitar Zero is also an empowering case for the mind's ability to grow throughout life.
