  • Excellent book!

    As reviewed by LinkZ1 on 5/16/2008

    I picked up this book shortly after buying my first guitar in March. This book has made learning the guitar a great experience. After really picking it up and working with it on a daily basis I've come to love how everything is paced. You learn the very basics at first, which, for a beginner such as myself, is a MUST. The fact that the book actually teaches you how to read music really seals it. I plan on getting book 2 as soon as I finish this. Highly recommended!

  • I Was Taught With This

    As reviewed by NilGuitar on 8/23/2006

    My guitar teacher taught me with this book. It teaches you how to tune your guitar and the proper position in wich to play your guitar. It guides you through basic and big-sounding open chords and strumming/picking techniques. You even begin to cover reading music! That is the music industry music, folks, not just tabs. Not many other "Level 1" books provide that. It is a small, yet very versatile book. Obviously, it can be used as a teaching guide, though I strongly believe it can be a self-instruction book as well. The instructions are clear and they give you some popular songs to play to keep you motivated.
