Overview

Teach Yourself to Play Guitar has been created specifically for the student with no music-reading background. With lesson examples presented in today's most popular tab format, which also incorporates simple beat notation for accurate rhythm execution, Teach Yourself to Play Guitar offers the beginning guitarist not only a comprehensive introduction to essential guitar-playing fundamentals, but a quick, effective, uncomplicated and practical alternative to the multitude of traditional self-instructional method books. It also: covers power chords, barre chords, open position scales and chords (major and minor), and single-note patterns and fills; includes lesson examples and song excerpts in a variety of musical styles - rock, folk, classical, country and more; familiarizes the student with fretboard organization, chord patterns, hand and finger positions, and guitar anatomy by way of easy-to-interpret diagrams, photos and illustrations; provides complete, concise explanations while keeping text to a minimum; and prepares the student for the option of further guitar instruction.

Short, Simple, and Understandable

By beginner and beyond

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Hal Leonard Teach Yourself to Play Guitar Book:

Although this book is only 48 pages, the contents of the book are extremely helpful. If you know nothing about guitar and are just trying to figure out the basics (how to hold the guitar, how to read tab, finger exercises), then buy this book. Labeled diagrams explain tab reading and and give simple examples to play and practice on. This book is just a starting point but gives you a technical foundation you will later build from.

There was a book by Hal Leonard like this in the '70's, and this one is even better. It can be used by teachers as well as by individuals. Very good book.
