About this title


The author knows from over 20 years of teaching experience that students form most of their good and bad habits in the first six months of practicing. It is therefore extremely important to use a method book that clearly and concisely covers the important subjects of proper playing technique, tuning, picking, strumming, music theory and rhythm. Furthermore, the only way a student can remember the information learned is to apply it.

From the Author:

"Quick" and "Easy" seem to be the buzz words for selling beginning guitar method books. From looking at many of these method books over the years I understand why so many of the students I get have so many problems. In their rush to give the consumer a "quick fix" many method books leave out important information or offer poorly explained techniques leaving the student to fill in the blanks as best they can. I find that when a beginning student is shown the proper ways to play and think of music their progress is remarkable. Music isn't a race to see who can play 3 chords the fastest, it's about making those chords sound like music, so that they are a pleasure for you to play and for others to hear. It means developing proper technique, understanding rhythm and music theory. This method book gives you a comprehensive start toward understanding these aspects of music and also points you in the right direction to other resources to develop your musical abilities further.

From my many year of teaching I have found that every student learns differently and is interested in different things. To help provide you with a rich resource I have included the following formats to help you learn guitar.


There are many approaches you can take to this book to compliment your learning style and I believe all the resources will provide you with a intriging and fun enviorment in which to learn. I'm also available via our FAQ pages to answer any question you might have so feel free to read our FAQs and if you can't find the answer to your question I'd be happy to help out.
