BONUS, I downloaded it straight to my computer! Works for all devices!
First, I think this book would be an excellent resource to teach a child howto play guitar, and it could also be used for beginner adults as well. I felt that there were a lot of great things about this book. The book uses color coordination for learning the notes, which I think would be particularly helpful to young children who may not be able to read the instructions in a standard lesson book. The teaching methods for picking, strumming, and reading music were explained well and with an appropriate amount of detail for the age group. The book contained many pictures and jokes that I found cute and I am sure would encourage children to keep working at their lessons. The words and phases used were easy to understand and I believe most children should be able to follow what was being said. I do think that whether a child can comprehend what is being said is up to the parent to decide.I feel that the child must really want to learn what is being taught, just like any other subject, or else the lessons may not stick. The book include interactive videos, able to be viewed directly from the book itself on any smart phone, kindle, or kindle reading app. I feel that the videos were extremely helpful from a teaching point of view and would really help a child learn what they are doing in a hands on manner vs just reading about it in a standard lesson book.
I do feel it would have been helpful to see a video where the lesson shows the author counting he beats through a song, instead of just explaining how to do it. Overall I feel that this is an excellent teaching tool for the age group that it is aimed at and the material is appropriately explained. I would definitely recommend this to other parents who's children are showing an interest in guitar and ready to learn.
The pictures definitely help in the learning process, as do the videos. The guitar I was using was out of tune, so I was happy they had a video that helped me fix that problem. Learning how to hold the guitar and pick as well as what the strings are helped me in getting through the rest of the lessons.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that wishes to learn to play guitar. Look forward to more lessons and more books!
I also love that there are videos that go right along with the book; it is always so much more helpful to see and hear versus simply reading. I struggle a lot with my left hand when trying to play guitar so the slow pace really accommodated for me and allowed me to get used to using my left hand gradually.
Overall, this book is simple but at the same time filled with information. With plenty of popular tunes that people recognize, its easy to know if you're progressing. I would recommend this book to any age person who is ready to pick up guitar, and I know I will keep using it!
