Review:

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great for beginners! | By S L R | Bought this as a Christmas present almost a year ago, for a beginner guitarist friend. I had seen the book before and knew how great it was as a leaning tool, being a guitarist myself. I have now heard from my friend that she finds it very useful, feels like she has improved and learned from the book and still uses it regularly. * Amazon *
