    Comments about Alfred Guitar Method 1 Book:

    I teach & perform full time, and have used this book since 2001. I've also used Mel Bay and Hal Leonard methods. Those are good, but Alfred's Method 1 is a good, basic reference for the fundamentals of guitar note reading and rhythm. The book uses first position fingering, which is essential for beginning students. With teacher supervision (if you teach), I'd recommend this book for beginners. If you're just starting out, use this book and read every word; go slow, and don't cut corners! A great book, and the advice and fingering information are most helpful.
