5.0 out of 5 stars A Complete Tutorial for Beginners AT LAST!! :-), 7 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over the years I have bought many different tutorial books, but none of them ever really worked for me - and none of them have really worked for my 12-year old daughter when she decided to teach herself guitar!

But now, in this online world where downloads and YouTube rule, here is 'Guitar Adventures' by Damon Ferrante which can be downloaded, as well as physically bought, and has YouTube tutorial and backing track videos along with it! Fantastic!!

The YouTube videos are short and to the point so interest is maintained. The structure of the book is simple to follow, logical and explains clearly how to perform each skill covered. With 60 lessons and hundreds of pages, this is the PERFECT guitar tuition book that recognises how powerful a visual demonstration is, as well as a written explanation.

Highly recommended! Guitar Adventures: A Fun, Informative, and Step-By-Step 60-Lesson Guide to Chords, Beginner & Intermediate Levels, with Companion Lesson and Play-Along Videos (Steeplechase Guitar Instruction)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Retro Smile Maker!, 3 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic product! What a fun novelty! High quality, rubberised finish which does make your 9320 feel a bit clunky, but actually, it's got a great finish which feels wonderful.

All the slots and holes for connectors are in the right place and the side buttons are not hindered in any way by being covered by the case.

But best of all, if you are of the generation that lived with cassettes, this will just make you smile from ear to ear! The clash of cultures is wonderful - retro cassette meets 21st century tech - brilliant!

Makes every one of my friends smile when they see it - and not one has said it's not fantastic!Highly recommended - I may buy one in every colour and complete the set :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars You HAVE to read this!, 21 Dec 2012
When I first set about reading this book I thought I'd be reading a children's book as an adult, but having finished it I realised how wrong I was!

The genious of this novel is that it's multi-layered; read as a child and take the simplest of meanings - an adventure yarn where good battles evil. Read as an adult, and you get to explore significant questions about spirituality and philosophy that you thought were reserved for theological tomes!

You HAVE to read this novel! It's a cleverly mastered work that will leave you gasping for episode two....

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately doesn't bubble :-(, 14 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought one of these for our youngest daughter (the green wax in blue liquid version) and it works perfectly after about an hour warm-up. So we thought we'd get another one (this pink/pink version) for our other daughter, and one for our niece (the yellow wax in purple liquid version).

These would have made a fantastic Christmas presents for our daughter & neice, except for the fact that neither of them work!

Sure, the supplied bulbs lights up nicely and they do heat the wax and the liquid brilliantly as the glass gets pretty hot to the touch.

But that's where it kind of goes wrong... the wax melts into a fantastical stalagmite shape that stretches all the way up the lamp, and then as it finally turns into liquid, it just sinks to the bottom of the lamp, forms an 'egg' shape and sits there forever! There's no bubbling, no wonderful colour effects as the many and varied size bubbles rise and fall up and down the lamp... the egg just sits there - forever!

We returned our nieces lamp to Amazon and got a replacement - and that doesn't work either. It will be returned for a refund.

We have returned our daughter's lamp to Amazon for a refund.

In summary, we have had four of these lamps and only one works! Don't bother buying this as it's very disappointing when nothing happens, and it will cost you around 4 to send it back to Amazon!! :-(

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, monotonous, boring and predictable!, 1 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bible of the Dead (Kindle Edition)
Oh dear. Bought this on the strength of Knox`s previous work - that was my first mistake. Continued to read it even though I wanted to delete it - my second mistake. Thought it would go somewhere - third mistake. If you like descriptions of car journeys in real time and descriptions of the view from the car window in the dark for page after repetetive page, go ahead and waste your money. And you`ll probably guess the plot-twist at the end about 10% of the way through like I did. Apart from all that, a great book!

Amazon Kindle Keyboard Lighted Leather Cover, Burgundy Red (only fits Kindle Keyboard)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect addition to a perfect device! You have to get one of these!!, 18 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, this is pricey at the best part of 50, but it is worth every penny!

The cover itself:
Beautifully made in leather - fits the Kindle like a glove - protects the screen and the switches. Well designed so you can plug your kindle in to charge it without opening or removing the cover. Comes in a great range of colours - you could get a few for all your different moods and roles in life :-) I got red 'cos I'm hot! (not really)

The connection method:
Could NOT be easier to plug the Kindle into the cover - it comes with instructions that even a goldfish could follow (and they are renowned for for not being great at manual dexterity)

The light:
No problems using the light in the dark - illuminates the whole screen with no difficulty, and once you have got used to where things are on the keypad, it's bright enough to help you make your way round that too.

The elastic strap:
This holds the cover shut when not in use and works a treat - no problems whatsoever with its build quality or reliability.

Use of the cover:
Folds back on itself perfectly when you're reading, or if you are in a more traditional mood, you can hold the whole thing like one of those old fashioned book things they used to have in the olden days!

Summary:
This is brilliant and if you own a Kindle you HAVE to get one of these :-) Does it's job brilliantly!
