Looking to improve your jamming skills? Backbeat Books' A Player's Guide to Chords and Harmony Book can probably help you out. Or maybe you'd like to study the method pioneered by a bona fide guitar hero. In that case, there are instruction books that take in-depth looks at the careers of music legends; for instance, check out the MJS Music Publications Phrase By Phrase Guitar Method - Randy Rhoads (with Ozzy Osbourne).

One glance through the lineup of general guitar instruction books is enough to see that many of them are bundled with companions CDs and DVDs that provide interactive lessons to help you learn. But if you'd like something that gives you a hand even more directly, be sure to check out some of the books that come with the ChordBuddy system. It's an accessory that fits over the neck of your guitar, providing tactile feedback to help you position your fingers correctly. That way, you can build up the muscle memory required for perfect finger placement every time you hold a chord.

So keep your learning aspirations and goals at the top of your mind when you browse through these general guitar instruction books, and you'll definitely find a few options that look just right for you. They'll be some of the best teachers you could ask for - apart from a human one, of course!
