        GB Scotland's finest guitar tutor
        The accompanying notes are good and helpful
        Sometimes the tab and notation are asking for slightly different things

        Excellent beginners book for learning rock guitar.

        I'm impressed with this. It jumps straight into songs and styles. Offers some tips for playing and recommended listening. A great resource for those self teaching but also a good tool for guitar teachers too. For me, the best part is learning to play in the styles of some of my favorite bands. I'm also glad they added metal to the course!

        As a guitar teacher, I find the Rockschool books make a very good teaching course, even if the student doesn't want to take the exams. The pieces are interesting and sound good with the backing track. Debut grade is a good place for children to start; grade 1 is a good place for adults.
