On The Road To Being An Accomplished Gutarist

By Allan

from Norman, Oklahoma

I took about 10 lessons from the original Mel Bay book # 1 when I was a teen ager and then started playing in a Rock Band. I always wanted to study the complete Mel Bay system and learn more about music theory and be able to read music better. I recently retired and I ordered all 7 books. The Expanded Additions with the CD's are outstanding. These books have plenty of songs and drills. You know you can move on to the next page when you can play along with the corresponding track on the CD. I dedicate one to two hours a day and feel as if when I am finished I could qualify as studio musicians reading and playing what ever is in front of me. Also note that on the back of each book there are several supporting books you can buy to really enhance your talents at each level. I plan to purchase those as well.
