5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for a Beginner! March 16, 2013
I bought a guitar at a yard sale recently just because it was practically given to me. The only problem was I had no idea how to play it! I cam across this book and I'm now learning the basics and am thankful for it!

Its very informative, nice diagrams of chords that are helping me to better understand the instrument. If you want to learn to play the guitar I highly recommend this book. Will get you down the path to playing the guitar not only properly, but with knowledge.

Pretty decent book that will get you started. Tips on buying a guitar, strings, and other ideas. It goes through the techniques on playing a guitar such as hammering, strumming, slides etc.

There are some diagrams of chords and it explains the different types of cords such as barre. Worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very instructional. April 3, 2013
I read this book due to a strong recommendation I received from a close friend who had used it to learn some basics recently. This has to be one of the best instrument guide books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The book is easy to read and simple to follow. I didn't know much about playing guitar before, and now I feel like I am ready for the more advance text and lessons. I highly recommend this book!

This book covers just about anything you can imagine with getting familiar with guitars. The videos and drawings are a bonus with its details and references to the guitar. I highly recommend this book to beginners as well as someone who hasn't picked up their guitar in quite a few years.
