Comments about Music Sales Solo Guitar Playing Book 1 - 4th Edition Book/CD By Noad:
I picked up the first edition in 1982 after my teen years of playing rock. Classical guitar has opened a whole new world of guitar playing for me. As I play with other "strummers", I can see their envy as I fingered-pick and bring music to life. Do yourself a favor and learn this valuable method of playing, it will give you a life time of satisfaction.
