The strong point of this lesson book lies in it's teaching of the individual notes on the strings. To me, this is very important. You will learn not only how to play chords and strum and sing along, but you will be able to pick out melodies on the strings and read from regular sheet music. New chords are also introduced as the student progresses through learning the notes on the strings. For example, you will not only learn the "F chord", but how to find and play the individual note "F" on second string. I think this type of thorough-going note reading instruction will form a good foundation for finger-picking. After learning the two-to-four notes in the "first position" (ie, first four frets), there is a series of practice melodies. These exercises are can get monotonous, since they aren't actually tunes, just a bunch of notes. Listening to the enclosed CD (which consists of someone reading the book, and then playing the exercises) should help you know if what you play "sounds right".Read more ›
The CD is useful, though I did find I was using it as a crutch instead of making myself work on the timing from the sheet music.
Overall, I'd give it a rating of OK. It definitely leaves room in the market for a similar beginner book that have more chord work and less note work, and more practice pieces.

Really like the lessons about the notes on each string. I have trouble picturing the keyboard and the book helps with that.Published 6 days ago by mil e
