badly written

The writing is terrible--not clear, not idiomatic, often barely English. Even though this is an audiobook, it doesn't contain any music and instead refers to printed scores in the original text, so as a book for listening it doesn't stand alone. What a waste of money!

A perfect audible piece of information for us!

This is the audio-book that I wish I had learned from my high school guitar coach. It manages to concentrate on the fundamentals, without going on tangents, on core concepts.

It makes learning the guitar easy. And if you are interested in learning the fretboard and you love to pick or want to learn to pick as I do, then this is the beginner guide.

This is best audio-book i ever seen.

The overall content is fine, it's just that if I listen to this lying down I'd fall asleep, the individual narrating sounds so stale and dull.
