From the Author:

For all the years I have been playing a guitar, I have never seen a "learn how to play guitar" book that provides a means of learning how to play a guitar in an easy to understand format which provides for the beginning guitar player plenty of clear and bold illustrations. So I thought it was about time to make available such a guitar book. I truly believe a picture tells a thousand words and this explains why I believe it doesn't take hundreds of pages of words to show someone how to play a guitar. I decided to present a guitar book which contains less words and more of what I like to call SEE & DO so that you won‘t spend a great deal of your time reading but spend a greater portion of your time with your hands on the guitar.

You will discover that this learn to play guitar book will not overwhelm you with more than you need to know at this early stage of learning to play guitar, however will provide you with only the must know basics, learning techniques about getting started on the guitar and only the essential guitar chords, presented in simple to understand illustrations. You will find that by focusing and learning the most commonly played guitar chords and how they work together. With the information provided in this guitar book, you will be on your way to playing the songs you enjoy as well as your own creations a lot sooner.
