The best thing about this book is the way the content is delivered to the reader. The style is informal, but very effective at getting the points across. For beginners it's probably very easy to understand, and for those of us with shelves full of other guitar books it appears to look at topics from a slightly different point of view.
You find yourself reading on a topic you sort of understand only to find it wasn't half as complicated as you first thought. This fresh perspective brought a lot of stuff together for me, and filled in a few holes.
I've only just started the workout, so I can't comment on that yet. But it looks promising.
My only criticism - the author stops a bit short on some topics and leaves you wanting more information - but maybe that's for another book, so long as it's by the same author.

If David Mead isn't your best mate you'll feel like he is by the time you've read this. You quickly get the impression that if there's anything this guy doesn't know about the guitar it isn't worth knowing. Even so, he's obviously done enough teaching to realise that what we most probably want is to bypass all the 'interesting but not particularly useful stuff', for the time being at least, and get straight down to playing the beast. His stated objective with the book is to tell you what you need to know (nothing more) in the order that you need to know it and that's just what he does.
The book starts with some information that will be useful if you haven't yet bought all of you're equipment. If you do already have your gear you'll either find yourself breathing a sigh of relief because you happened to get it right or kicking yourself because you didn't read this before you went shopping. After that comes a series of chapters in which Mr Mead explains things like which chords are worth learning and how you can 'cheat' with the others and suggests an order in which to learn them so that you build up your dexterity as you go*. The last part of the book, the workout itself, and where I'm currently at, is a series of exercises that are designed to improve your playing by developing your dexterity and your 'musical ear'.
Whether you're thinking of buying a guitar or whether you already have one: buy this book. I mean how can you go wrong with an author who emphasises his confidence in a point that he's making by saying that if you prove him wrong he'll buy you a pint next time you see him?

This book is usable by any guitarist from beginner to advanced. The beginning section deals with some of the basics of chords and scales and is great as a reference point if you are already familiar with this sort of stuff. From a beginner's perspective it has all you need to get you rocking! The workout exercises although not that hard, do exactly what they are supposed to, get your speed, accuracy and endurance up in minimal time. If you are a serious player though you may want to supplement this with your own routine. Also included in this book are useful tips and tricks which we can all use, as there is nothing wrong with going back to basics every so often, regardless of your level.

Format: Paperback
Ten minute guitar workout by David Mead Bit of a strange book this and a little difficult to see who exactly the it's is aimed at. The guitar workout section is only 40 pages of this 200 page tome, and as a guitar warm up/workout it's fine and can be recommended for just about anybody although the more advanced guitarist may find the exercises a little easy. The rest of the book seems to deal with issues concerning the beginner guitarist and as such is an ideal reference work, David Mead has an excellent sense of humour, writes well and is a mean guitarist in his own right. If you know a few chords and are looking for something to help you advance as a player with information about what scales and chords you need to know with a practice regime thrown in then this is the book for you, if however you are a more advanced guitarist looking for a more organised practice seclude you may well be disappointed as I was.

I came across David Mead's work purely by accident, and I'm glad I did. This book is definitely worth reading. It caters to guitarists at all levels. Not only that it's very adictive.
Sometimes guitar can seem like an uphill struggle.
David is with you helping you climb. It clear concise and totally understandable by the budding musician. No technobable here! After spending hundreds of pounds on guitar material and lessons, I've found what I'm looking for. Buy it and see for yourself.....

I have been playing guitar, for personal entertainment, on and off for ten years. I had got to a point where I wasn't really learning anything new but could still not play as well as I would like to. Dave Mead's book has opened a whole new chapter in my guitar playing by explaining theory basics in a way that now seems obvious. The exercise routines really work, riffs and songs I have been playing for years now sound 10 times better because of improved technique. If you're reading this Mr Mead, cheers I owe you one.
