For the man who has given so freely of his time and knowledge to those of us trying to learn the guitar, I felt that the very least I could do, by way of a "thank you", was purchase Justin's book. I pre-ordered on Amazon and have had a few months with it to date.

Now I work in IT. I have grandiose ideas about my ability to learn from books and these plans never materialise. As a result, I have cluttered every place I have ever lived in with thousands of £$ worth of "Teach yourself . . ." type books. All I have learnt is that sleeping next to them (bedside table) or balancing the laptop on them does not assist learning by osmosis. (I have grave doubts now about that technique, but that is another story.)

Justin's book has proved to be an exception to my rule. It is dog-eared already, margins filled with my scribbled pencil notes and has that 'trusty textbook' feel about it. It got that by being truly, truly useful, engaging, entertaining and enlightening.
I cannot recommend it enough. Someone said something about it needing a CD. No way. Justin's lessons are available online. Get with the plan, Stan!

I have a past littered with those weak and failed attempts at learning the guitar. No longer. I am progressing positively, I feel guilty if a day passes without me picking my guitar up. I feel that I can advance from those annoying plateaus in the learning process. This book spurs me on. I give Justin Sandercoe all the credit with his method and, more-over, his making it available to me, free, online and it augments the book brilliantly to be able to follow online when I get stuck. This book has been the cherry on top. It has been a chance for me to feel a little better connected to the man who has given me so much.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The reason I've opted for 4 stars instead of 5 gel with several concerns made by other reviewers in various reviews.

To bring these together --

The book is VERY hard to use unless you want to risk cracking the spine. It really should have been ring bound. Its frustrating to be studying a song and to have to weight the pages down to stop the book shutting itself. It's smaller-than-usual width also makes it impractical to use on a music stand.

A CD should have been included. The book assumes you know the songs (which are drawn from a very wide and eclectic range of genres and styles).

To get most benefit from ths book you need to be familiar with Justin's website and tutorials. However, as you're reading this online, there's no reason why you can't search out his fabulous website and then dive right in --- but a CD would have let you work offline as well. Maybe Justin will consider making one and marketing it or releasing it via his website?

The book is mostly for people who are singers who accompany themselves, or for those who want to accompany someone else who is singing. It you're looking for tab or notation or melody lines - forget it. What you get are lyrics, chords and tips about strumming styles plus other topics such as hints for fingerpickers.

Chord diagrams are few and far between - so make sure you know your chords or have a good chord dictionary to hand. Having said that, most songs use pretty straightforward chords.

------------------------

OK - those are the reasons why I knocked off one star.

In all other respects, the book is excellent and can be seen as a combined songbook and teaching/learning/tutorial resource.

Something for all early years guitarists in this well thought out learning method.
It's probably just my incompetence but I would also suggest that if you can master the wealth of songs in this book you would be what I would consider to be an intermediate level guitarist at least! There was plenty to interest and inspire me even after 5 years of self study.
.....and what a nice guy!

16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Tillydog on 27 July 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is good as a 'stand-alone' guitar book with songs graded by difficulty. It really comes into its own, however when it's used alongside the justinguitar.com beginner's course (which is freely available). There's a fair selection of songs for each level of the course, but whether they work for you is ultimately down to individual taste.

The printing and typesetting are clear and well laid out, and there are a few performance / more advanced hints for each song.

It's a shame that the book isn't spiral bound, but that's the only niggle.

If you're following the course, and can spot a few songs you like, then the book is excellent.

This is the first beginners songbook I've found that can actually be understood by a beginner! The book is set out clearly and as well as all the lyrics and chords there are strumming patterns and tips for each song. Contains 100 songs from a wide variety of artists.
Great as a stand alone songbook, even better when used with Justin's free online guitar course.
This 2nd edition version is spiral bound so it stays open easily while you play.
A must for all beginner guitar players and worth considering for any player who wants to widen the variety of what they play.
