Comments about Hal Leonard Play Classical Guitar:
I have been playing guitar for about 30 years (electric and folk) and wanted to improve my sight reading and learn the basics of classical guitar for home recording. This book / CD is great for both and it has extensive explanations of theory. The format is really great; hard cover with spiral pages and CD.
