          For the absolute beginner, with no familiarity with guitars whatsoever, and
          who is trying to learn on his/her own, this guide is invaluable, and the pictures and layout are very helpful and encouraging.

          Well thought out, not patronising and is really a very useful pre runner to Bass Guitar for Dummies which was bought for me but really should be the next title. Good value and would recommend
