Format: Paperback
David's book on acoustic guitar method is thorough, engaging, and down-to-earth. I am working through it right now and I'm a newbie and it's readily understandable. The time frame he breaks the lesson plan down into is incredibly helpful and gives you a real sense of progress. Excellent learning tool. Highly recommended. (he also has a great sense of humour)

Look at the sample pages on here. Day 1 starts with fingerpicking each string in eight note patterns. The author doesn't explain once about different note values. I know how to read music so it didn't matter to me but I can see how this can confuse music theory beginners. Most of the book revolves around fingerpicking. While fingerpicking is fine, there's more to acoustic guitar than that technique. Also, my major gripe is the author doesn't specify if you are to continue practicing the previous day's exercises once you move on.

Even as a novice or intermediate guitar player, this is a good refresher course. Very easy to follow the theory and concepts put into practice. Great customer service experience!

I've now gone through the whole book once and am now doing it for a second time.
It really has helped me a lot. It won't turn you into Eric Clapton in 56 days, but it does give you a great foundation to build on. I've picked up most of the basics and learned to read tablature which I'm very pleased with. He doesn't spend much time teaching you to read music but the tablature and the accompanying CD should help you to understand enough to follow the exercises accurately.
You'll need a couple of accessories like a tuner and a metronome - or a drum machine - but apart from that this book is pretty much all you need to get you started playing guitar.
Well worth the money.

I found this book entirely too technical and not user friendly. It had some good points, but I would recommend looking at this in a bookstore.
