In Play Acoustic, skilled professional musicians and experienced tutors coach the reader through 11 styles. They teach exercises suitable to novice players and work up to full pieces and advanced techniques. Entire chapters are devoted to folk, rock and pop, blues, country, bluegrass, jazz, and more, with detailed guidance through both musical notation and tablature, diagrams, and explanatory text. An accompanying CD also offers listening examples of the most crucial of these exercises, to help players master each style. The acoustic guitar is the musical instrument of the people and Play Acoustic tells the people how to play it. This detailed and beautifully illustrated book explores the history of the acoustic guitar, from the jazz age to the folk revolutions of the early 1960s and late 1990s to the current rebirth of bluegrass and the singer-songwriter boom of the past decade.

Comments about Hal Leonard Play Acoustic (Book and CD Package):
I really like this book especially as a beginner. I haven't found a style yet and this book shows a wide variety of them. I really like that it has tab and play along cd's. There are only a few things that I don't like about the book. The cd's don't count down before they start playing so you have to count it out yourself and each one is slightly different. The other is that the pages stick and could be easier to handle. However, they are durable and are bound. Also, it doesn't teach you to read music which would be nice.
