I give lessons to 9 students. All of which were beginners. I introduced them all to this Grade 1 book. It really makes my job easier since all I have to do is reinforce the teachings and grade them on their progress. All of my students quickly began understanding the theory and found out how easy it was to read music. I trust the Hal Leonard teaching methods. I used them too when I was a beginner......oh, over 35 years ago. Definately a great product.
I picked up the Mel Bay Modern Guitar Method Grade 1 book along with the accompanying DVD when I first started playing about 5 years ago and highly recommend it to anyone who is new to playing guitar. This book covers all the basics and the DVD provides a great accompanying visual aid for a better understanding of the lessons. I also recommend getting the Mel Bay books that come after this one (I beleive they go up to grade 7 or 8) as I feel that they moved at a good pace and provided a good foundation for me to build on. If your a beginner guitar player, this is the series of books for you.
