Welcome to Beginning Guitar for Adults. I'm glad you have chosen the guitar as your instrument. Thanks for choosing this book to help get you started.
This book and the other two books in this series- Rock Guitar for Adults and Blues Guitar for Adults-makes certain assumptions:
1.As an adult, you have a busy, stressful life and want your guitar education to be enjoyable, painless and direct. You don't want a lot of preliminaries. You want to get right to it.
2.You're pretty smart. You're not new to life, you're just new to the guitar.
This book focuses on the most important aspect of guitar: playing songs! Why else would you want to play a musical instrument? The book you are now holding in your hands starts you off with chords and songs in a variety of styles-folk, reggae, rock and blues. I say, "Get on the fast track."
You should be consistent in your practice habits. Play a little every day and a lot whenever you can. Use this book in the order it is presented and you will get where you want to go quickly. Then, keep the ball rolling and pick up Rock Guitar for Adults and/or Blues Guitar for Adults. Enjoy!
