I can already read music and fully understand the basics of stringed instruments, so I got this book purely to teach myself the fingerings and learn a few tunes (with a view to maybe have some lessons later on).
The accompanying cd's are brilliant and I was quickly playing along comfortably.
I'm not looking to join an orchestra or anything so any bad habits I've got aren't a problem-if you're more serious about your music making then I'm certain this series of books would compliment professional teaching well.
The tunes are easy and graded to make the learner move on to the next level. All the finger positions and notation are explained well and easy to understand.
You need to work hard to do a tune a day but there is plenty here to help the beginner progress and understand music. A great buy for the beginner.
