The guitar is one of the most popular instruments in the modern music scene. That's great news for beginners, since it means there's a wealth of information out there to help you learn how to play. When you're just getting into the instrument, some of the first things on your shopping list should be guitar method books to cover the basics. To be the most versatile guitarist you can be, you'll want to know how to read standard music notation as well as guitar tablature. An entry-level method book should cover both, and then teach you how to translate those written notes into the strummed and picked riffs and chords that make up a guitar piece. Most method books will also delve into practical topics such as proper care and tuning of your guitar, as well as some background information about the instrument as a whole.

Along with the printed book, you'll also find that many of these method guides include demo audio CDs, instructional DVDs or even interactive CD-ROMs. All three are great resources to have for learning and reference. For certain techniques, you will probably find a video easier to follow than a set of written instructions, especially if you're a visual learner. The sample tracks on a CD are great for checking your accuracy and perfecting your timing. All in all, multimedia accompaniments are an important thing to consider when picking out your method books.

Versions that specifically target certain age groups are available as well, ranging from kids to adults—so it's never too early or too late to start learning. There are also some special-interest method books like genre-specific guides, tab compilations, ensemble books and left-handed methods. Whatever you want to get out of your guitar, look for the book that will help you get there.

Whether you're starting from square one or simply picking up the guitar in addition to instruments you already know how to play, a beginner's method book is a valuable starting point on your path. Covering basic music theory and fundamental guitar techniques, they'll give you a foundation that you can continue building on as you improve your skills over time.
