Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar with Steve Krenz. This is an exceptionally easy learning system for me. I tried the classroom route at the community college, and while did pick up some fundamentals, I really didn't progress well with the guitar playing. This course has changed all of that. I can work at my own speed, I can go back and review the DVD's, if necessary and the lesson book provides the exercises I need to gain proficiency. The only drawback I have noticed, so far, (I'm only on lesson 2) is a printing/editing error on page 12. On exercise 3, at the bottom of the page, the tabulation in my book is incorrect to the musical notes that they accompany. Since I was able to read music a little bit, this jumped out at me. A printed errata sheet or a new printed addition would be good for future customers.

Love the cd's that are in sleeved pockets and the box is felt lined like a good guitar box comes with extra sleeves for added cd's the book has all the lessons and there is a resource area online so much to offer for the price excellent program.
I've tried so many diferent types of learning to play guitar books and havent gotten as far as I could. But Gidsons learn and master guitar with Steve Krentz is fantastic I am actually learning and going farther than I've ever been its an excellent course and I recommend it to anyone that is serious about learning guitar from the bottom up to the top, Excellent course..

    Comments about Hal Leonard Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar Boxed DVD/CD Set Legacy Of Learning Series:

    I am new to the guitar but have quite a bit of experience as a vocalist so I'm familiar with music. I'm only on lesson 2 (of 20) and this program far exceeds my expectations. This is NOT just a program to learn a few chords and think you're a rock star; this is a professional, I'm-paying-money-for-actual-lessons program. Music theory is included throughout so you truly become a musician, not just a string picker. By the end of the course you not only know how to play, you understand what makes different sounds work together, how to build your own chords or determine what chord to use for a particular song. While you DO learn a lot of chords and playing styles, you also get plenty of exercises to build dexterity, finger strength and confidence. It takes hours of practice each week (beyond the actual lesson), and I'm hoping to keep up just doing one lesson a week. Steve Krenz is a talented musician who explains the concepts very clearly so it's easy to understand; not only will you be a much better guitar player, you might be amazed how much musical understanding you gain along the way!

          My son (10) and I (34) are working thru this course. So far only on lesson 1 but I like how it starts. The instructor plays on an acoustic and we own electrics, so no mention of how pickups work, etc in the first lesson. But I feel good about the purchase so far.

            Comments about Hal Leonard Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar Boxed DVD/CD Set Legacy Of Learning Series:

            This is the best Guitar instruction course for learning without a teacher. I would recommend also getting the bonus DVDs, but if you don't you can download the Bonus Resource lesson book online for free. It may seem pricey, but a teacher charges 20-30 an hour, and this comes with over 40 hours DVD instruction, so it is worth it.

              Comments about Hal Leonard Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar Boxed DVD/CD Set Legacy Of Learning Series:

              The topics covered can easily allow a complete novice to get up to the level of competent player in about 6-8 months, depending on the individual. Inside of the first month, you will learn to read music in first position, and you'll continuously learn music theory. At about the half-way through point, you'll learn finger-picking techniques, then move on through different genres. I had several years of lessons and studied music seriously for 2 years, and this really solidifies a lot of concepts for me and very clearly explains the basics which I never fully grasped. What's also nice is that there are additional bonus videos which explain some of the Gibson history and manufacturing techniques, so that as you learn to play you get exposure to some other guitar knowledge as well. All in all, for the money, it's the best organized and produced video training tool I've seen in over 20 years of playing. I bought this to help me become a better teacher, and I will gladly recommend it to anyone I teach!
