    Comments about Hal Leonard Lap Steel Guitar Method (Book/Online Audio):

    I play guitar, mandolin and banjo. Wanted to try something new and bought a small lap steel and this book. I liked the coverage of several tunings and the book helped me decide which tunning was best for me.

    A great beginner book for the Lap Steel

    By Ranzerox66

    from Southern New Mexico

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Hal Leonard Lap Steel Guitar Method (Book/Online Audio):

    I purchased this book to get a better perspective on the Lap Steel as my own experience with 'steel' guitar has really just been playing slide guitar on a regular guitar. I was a little disappointed with this book because it lends itself more to the tunings and techniques of playing in open tunings with regards to regular 6 string guitar. If you're looking for a book that digs deeper in to traditional lap steel tunings for Western Swing, Hank Williams, or even Hawaiian lap steel, this is NOT a book for you. This book does not cover the 6th tunings that I was looking for. That being said, if you know nothing about lap steel or slide guitar playing, this is a great book to learn from. The book is very good, it's just not what I was looking for ( I should have researched it a little more.)
    Book comes with a CD, and the book itself is easy to read and understand.
    Well written and easy to read and understand.
    Great price here at Musician's Friend.

    Comments about Hal Leonard Lap Steel Guitar Method (Book/Online Audio):

    I bought a music instruction book, that was supposed to come with a CD. It arrived promptly without the CD. I called and spoke to Taylor who promised to send me another book with the CD. It took a lot longer for the second book to arrive and again there was no CD. I called back and spoke to Greg, he promised to send me a CD in a few days. So far no CD. I will return the books.

    Great starter book!

    Comments about Hal Leonard Lap Steel Guitar Method (Book/Online Audio):

    Good basic instruction. Gives some initial tunings and scales to get you started. If you're already familiar with guitar basics, this will give you the basis to get out of the gates with a lap steel!
    It's a book! But also comes with a CD!
    Great MF price!

      I needed something to get me started on Lap Steel. This book is a good BASIC beginning. It allows you to learn some fundamentals and gives you a good start. With any amount of practice however, it doesn't take long to "outgrow" the book.
