5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start Aug. 27 2003
By A Customer
Format:Plastic Comb
The 3 book/3 CD compilation of the HL Guitar Method is where I began and what I use to teach students how to master the guitar and to become... musicians. The book methodically relys on learning to read actual music (later in the book the tab method is introduced) and slowly, patiently develops the student's fingers, ears, and appreciation of harmony and melody. Theory is introduced ever so subtley and enjoyably.
The CD tracks are excellent and make quality self-study feasible. Many of the songs or exercises are presented in slow and up tempo versions.
This is a treasure chest for the teacher and student or the student who is teaching himself. The supplemental HL "pop melody" books enhance the entire method, but this compilation volume is itself complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners Feb. 16 2009
By SJ
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I'd picked up the guitar and was taught a few chords by friends, but found I needed more of a direction in which to learn. Everyone learns differently, some people just have an ear for it, but sadly I'm not one of those! Then someone suggested this book. It teaches you the "proper" way to learn. You learn scales (and chords) which tells you when and what to play which was perfect for me. It slowly builds upon earlier lessons and eases you into playing. You can use the book with an electric or acoustic. I'd recommend this to everyone like me out there that needed a direction in learning to play.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not easy! Jan. 4 2014
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
Not into this book at all. I already know how to play guitar well enough to skip a bunch but even then this book glosses it over and the explanation of musical notation is not great.

Beware: The "CD'S" it comes with are AUDIO not VISUAL. In fact, they are just repetitions of the same chord etc.

Try something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Progression for Beginners Dec 30 2010
Format:Plastic Comb
I am teaching myself quite slowly as that is unfortunately my pace and I had tried three guitar methods before this one:

Progressive Guitar (Bk/CD/DVD)
I used this for a while and learned something from it but eventually lost interest.
Modern Guitar Method Grade 1, Expanded Edition, Book/2-CD Set
I could not get into this one. It did not inspire me. I did not have the version with the CD so that might have helped.
From Liverpool to Abbey Road: A Guitar Method Featuring 33 Songs of Lennon & McCartney, Book & CD
I still use this one as a supplement. It is a lot of fun and very accessible to beginners as well but not quite as smooth a progression as the Hal Leonard series so not perfect as the only method book.

The Progressive Guitar series was going fine but it did not introduce chords early enough. The Mel Bay series does but I didn't enjoy it. However the Hal Leonard series is great for my learning style. It is a very gentle progression and introduces chords early on. The exercises are fun enough but not as fun as "From Liverpool to Abbey Road". Most importantly they are very well sequenced and paced to improve a beginners technique.

As one reviewer has said a drawback of this volume is that some of the exercises are not on the CD including most of the rhythm exercises. This forces you to get out a metronome sometimes but that is good practice too. Also, if you purchase some of the supplements you will get around these issues.

Starts simple and gradually adds on different not combinations. The theory will help you learn more songs in the future. The CDs are great companions

Right from the very basics of how to tune a guitar to beginning to play, this book is awesome. With the companion CD's and some perseverance, you really can teach yourself guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginners
It has many practices and it's a great deal with book 1-3 combined, but I wished book number 3 would have been a bit harder or had longer songs.
