To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really like this book. I appreciate the writer's down to earth style and the effective practices. Great book! I ordered the other books from this author. I'm only on day 2 and I already feel comfortable with the fret board thanks to the finger exercises.
I know there are so many videos online and it's best to have a teacher, but I love to learn from books and this was the perfect supplement to my super-beginner guitar education! And it's true- I WAS able to play a song in 7 days!! (Spoiler: it's "Happy Birthday") I feel like this book has given me a solid foundation of the basics and it made the guitar not scary and mysterious! Thank you, Guitar Head!
Found the book to be helpful and interesting. The end of section one with the You Tube sessions seemed somewhat awkward. Difficult picking up on the playing style using three different chords with multiple instructors and styles. Would have been better just print the song bars with some basic instruction and leave it up to the student to get it. Overall better than most.
