5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on guitar I read so far Feb. 12 2003
This book is the best book I ever read on the guitar. It starts at the basics by explaining how the major triad is derived from overtones and subsequently explains the CAGED system and essential scales in blues and rock. Stuff that never made sense becomes clear when reading this book. Buy it if you want to understand what you're doing.
I also recommend The guitar handbook by Ralph Denyer.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's great! - But he has an ever better book. Aug. 20 2002
WOW! What an intense piece this is. You cannot just read this book. You must read it and then study it, to take full advantage of this work. I believe that is what the author intended - a knowledge-based textbook. However, Richard Daniels wrote "Blues Guitar - Inside and Out" which far surpasses anything on music of which I am aware. It (Blues Guitar) maintains the reader's interest in order to teach of the art. It too, is not a book to be just read. You read it, and then study it. Anyone interested in music, especially guitar, must read these books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Loads of Info- Horrible Organization June 11 2002
Learning to play guitar from this book is like reading stereo instructions. This book is obviously written by a true guitar lover- it has interesting drawings, a piece on the history of string instruments and loads of diagrams... BUT this book is rendered to near-incoherent status by its poor organization. The book is organized in chapters, with big headings and loads of diagrams, but when you read the book, you begin to notice that the writing is attrocious. I have read and re-read chapters a half a dozen times and still find myself confused as to what the heck he's trying to say. I was so enthusiastic when I first bought this book because it looked so thorough. I'd get so frustrated, however, my girlfriend finally resorted to hiding the book from me. Finding a good guitar instruction book is SO hard- I feel your pain- but take it from me that this is not the sort of book any beginner would want to own.
