Product Description

Product Description

For years I looked for that perfect guitar book that would show me exactly what I needed to know without all the fancy stuff that I didn't really care about. I often got frustrated, thinking, "why can't I find a book that will just show me how to make chords, read tabs, and play guitar solos in easy to understand language?" I never found that book, so I decided to write it myself. After learning the guitar and then giving lessons for a while I have figured out a way to teach others in days what took me years to figure out. The best part is that it REALLY is simple!
If you are looking for a book that teaches you how to read notations and treble clefs, this is not your book. If you want to understand everything there is to know about keys, modes, and signatures - this book is not what you are looking for. If you want to pick up the guitar for the first time and be ready to join a band by the weekend - wrong choice. But if you want to read a book that will teach you how to make chords, how to find and remember every note on the neck, how to play every chord a bunch of different ways, how to read tablature, and how to figure out and write guitar solos, this is definitely what you are looking for!!! No tricks, no gimmicks. This is a concise and to the point recap of everything I have learned over the past 16 years. Like anything, you will get what you put into it. But I can PROMISE you, if you read my book and follow the instructions, YOU WILL LEARN FASTER THAN YOU EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE!

Thanks. Solid, no-nonsense, concise advice for the beginner/intermediate guitarist. There's a small handful of typos but they're easy to spot. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Play Guitar Book 2 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased by my husband after buying numerous others, all of which say they will teach a beginner to play guitar but unfortunately in my husband's case this was not so! However, this book is, in my husband's words, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! He has been using it now for a couple of weeks and the improvement in his playing is really noticeable. One happy chappie!
