    Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1:

    Maybe not exactly what I was looking for but I am also working with a musician so the combination is good. This manual lays flat nicely so it's easy to use and the content is basic and straight forward.

    Just Okay

    Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1:

    I had a few lessons under my belt and I felt like this book and CD just skipped from super easy to more advanced without anything in between.

    Great for Serious Beginners

    By

    Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1:

    Been playing over 43 years, now in retirement and teaching guitar for fun. My students range from 7-20 years old, most with less than a year on the guitar. Unlike many who demand instant gratification, the Hal Leonard books don't just teach you how to play, but really teach MUSIC (what a concept). The exercises are presented in a logical and effective order, and a dedicated student can learn very quickly. The songs reinforce the lessons and provide a sense of accomplishment for the student. These books are not the end-all / be-all for learning guitar BUT they're very good, teach you real music (not just banging-out power chords) and provide a solid foundation upon which to become an accomplished guitarist.
