From reading music and playing techniques to music theory, this primer teaches it all.
The Complete Beginning Guitarist is the ultimate beginning guitar method: a fun, creative, and comprehensive method for beginning musicians to learn how to play guitar. It combines note reading with creative rote and by-ear learning approaches. The student simultaneously uses melodic and chordal approaches to the guitar while learning to read music, understand music theory, improvise, and perform song accompaniments. The 112-page instructional music book includes two play-along CDs, and free MP3 and interactive Guitar Guru song demos are available for download.
