      Comments about Hal Leonard FastTrack Guitar Method Book 1 CD Package:

      I've been playing guitar for 30 years and teaching for about 20 of those. This book is a great companion to use with a teacher/student set up. The accountability of having a teacher will keep you on track and avoid you learning the basics wrong and keep you from being frustrated to the point of giving up. Trying to use this on your own will pose a risk of not learning to hold correctly, use correct figure positions during each song, etc.

        Private Lesson's Perspective

        By Sean-.R2eo

        from Englewood Colorado

        Comments about Hal Leonard FastTrack Guitar Method Book 1 CD Package:

        I've been teaching private lessons for about 8 years now and this is the book I keep coming back to. It's well thought out, and teaches students how to actually READ their music rather than just strum a few chords and quit guitar after a month.I'm surprised this book is so hard to find in stores, as it's (in my opinion) much better than the other Hal Leonard music books. Especially the junk the store guys recommend.My only complaint is that the CD tracks go too fast. New students need a much slower pace.

        A way to get going!

        By The Tone

        from Sugar Land, TX

        Comments about Hal Leonard FastTrack Guitar Method Book 1 CD Package:

        I've used these books for the saxophone also, and with no real "melody" playing experience of any kind (a drummer, in other words), I found them to be fun, easy, and enjoyable. I recommend any of the Fast Track series for those who would like to get the instrument out of the box and get going!

        Great First Book

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Hal Leonard FastTrack Guitar Method Book 1 CD Package:

        Features- This book has everything you need to start playing guitar. It's a little bit different than other method books as it isn't as serious(it has some jokes throughout, some are cheesy but kind of cute and a reminder that guitar is supposed to be fun!). It is easy to use and has some very good songs/examples that are extremely fun. Plus it has a good CD to play along with.Quality-Hal Leonard is a big name and it is very structured and organized just like their other method books, but Hal Leonard has put a lot of time into this book to make it easier for people like me to learn the guitar.Value-A minimal expense for a method book that you'll actually want to use.Overall-I've been using it for a few months and have enjoyed it immensely. I've learned a lot and have had a lot of fun with it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play guitar but isn't willing to commit a lot of money for lessons. I plan on using more Fast Track books in the future.

        Very Good for Beginners

        By NextHendrix725

        from Herrin,IL

        Comments about Hal Leonard FastTrack Guitar Method Book 1 CD Package:

        The book lets you move at your own pace and breaks everything down so it is easy to understand. It took me about 2 months to get through it, and yet going through it over and over continues to improve my playing.

        Comments about Hal Leonard FastTrack Guitar Method Book 1 CD Package:

        Best book to get started with. Much better than anything in the MelBay series that I tried first. Very easy to follow and you learn a lot fast. Should be able to complete every thing in a month and move on to a more advanced book. This is only for beginners.
