Another "...For Dummies" Triumph!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Guitar For Dummies (Paperback)
If you know nothing about guitars other than that you want to play one then this is the book for you.
Sure, it covers the usual ground of learning to play guitar that every guitar book out there does, but it does so in style that's so friendly it makes using other guitar books seem positively painful.
Plus, as well as those essentials it also tells you everything else you'll need to know, such as how to choose and buy a guitar, how to restring it, how to keep it in tune - all the basic stuff and some great tips that other books should tell you but suspciously never do.
It's designed so that you can easily "dip in" to sections, but because it's written in that wonderfully entertaining and humorous (and corny) ...For Dummies style you'll probably want to read the whole book anyway. Seriously!
I can't recommend it enough.
