My hubbie bought me a guitar for xmas last year but I've never quite got around to learning it properly - so it finally felt liek time. cought a couple of beginners books and this one was great, nice and simple and easy to follow. It's ages since I read musci so I liked being able to follow the TAB diagrams, but it's also re-teaching me to read music properly as well, so best of both worlds. Good wee book !

My grandson has just started high school and is choosing Guitar as his musical instrument. I looked around for a book that looked easy enough for him to follow as he hasn't started reading music yet either. His dad look on amazon and suggested I get him this one as it does teach them how to read and follow music but also how to use diagrams and follow the photos and illustrations as well, so he can do either....It got a big thumbs up when i gave it to him!

After reading this book I feel that I am quite an accomplished guitarist given the length of time I have been playing. I would really recommend this book to all budding guitarists as a first step.

Starts off with one string & works up. If I can understand it anyone can! My playing has improved consistently.

Thought this book was great, some beginner books (if you're an adult) tend to insult your intelligence. But I thought this one gave good instructions, and a very solid basis to start your guitar playing journey.

I dont know how i came across this book but it's great! It took me no time at all to actually play chords and make music. Unlike learning an instrument when i was a kid, toiling away for what seemed like pointless hours, with this book i literally can't put my guitar down!! Cant recommend this book highly enough....
