Fun, functional and effective

This is the guitar tuition resource that, I'm told, is favoured by many, if not most, primary school guitar teachers. Our nine-year-old daughter began lessons at the beginning of this term and given her somewhat butterfly approach to every hobby she's ever had (completely enthusiastic for about five minutes and then, when the novelty wears off, flitting off to the next new shiny pastime) I was a little sceptical whether she'd stay the course.
Nine weeks later, and she's still plucking gamely away - largely, I think, because this book makes it all very straightforward and the kids end up learning to play songs rather than just playing an endless stream of unrelated chords, which makes it all that much more engaging.
The layout of the book and the instructions are clear, easy to follow and logical and even in the course of nine weeks - thanks also to her weekly lesson - we've heard real improvement in her playing. The price makes it good value for money and I'd recommend it as an additional source of support to anyone who's having lessons or as a standalone 'teach yourself' book.
