    Rating Review
    Customer Rating An excellent book, the best actually, for teachers who have beginners and wish to introduce them to Rock and Pop music without losing sight of the reading and other classical essence. The method is clear, the tunes perfect (slow and fast versions)and anyone from age 8-20 will love this book.
    I already have bought around thirty! Highly recommended.

    Customer Rating If you want to learn fingerstyle, classic and strumming without a teacher then this book is the right choice. Now I'm a master in fingerstyle and music reading.

    Customer Rating My guitar teacher recommended this book. It is a great way to learn the notes on each string. Taking you through one string at a time, adding more notes in each piece you play.

    Customer Rating Very swift delivery at Christmas time. Daughter only been playing for about 6 hours, but able to play a piece within ten minutes from the book. She is very pleased with it. Would recommend book and company.
