Comments about Alfred Beginning Acoustic Guitar (Book/CD):
I?m learning from this book. It covers most topics adequately. It does not cover instrument care and maintenance (i.e. changing strings, humidifiers,). Professional musician friends tell me it?s a good book, but it is deficient in scales and theory (which, I believe, are covered in other books in the series). Furthermore, it includes, but doesn?t stress learning standard notation (it allows you to use TAB as a crutch). The CD isn?t useful, but the book is sufficient as a stand-alone instructional tool. Maybe the DVD version is better? Despite these deficiencies, I enjoy the book and recommend it.
