Learn to Play Guitar is comprehensive and clear with over 180 photographic examples, illustrations and purpose made diagrams. This guitar book includes 42 downloadable mp3 tracks of full band demo and backing track with the guitar removed for you to play over. Learn to Play Guitar bridges the gaps, explaining guitar techniques that can be taken for granted by more experienced guitar players.

- Melodies

To get you straight into playing music, numbers have been added underneath guitar tablature to assist with the rhythm. Later on, the rhythmical aspect of conventional music notation is covered so you can use it in conjunction with tablature.

- Rhythm Guitar

Changing between chords and strumming are presented as separate subjects initially, so that you can develop coordination in each hand independently. They are then brought together starting with basic exercises, getting more advanced until there is a rhythm guitar musical piece to play.

- Music Theory

The major scale, minor scale, major and minor pentatonic scales and basic major and minor chord construction are explained in terms of the fret-board and reinforced by musical pieces in various styles to make the learning process practical and enjoyable.

- What Else?

Fret-board layout, power chords, barre chords, how to string a guitar, how to practise guitar, palm muting and basic lead guitar techniques.

Review:

"We loved the book. The information was well paced and concise enough not to overwhelm. Any beginner would definitely benefit from having this book, and it's a great reminder for those who might have forgotten details or are looking for them." Nimal De Silva, The Music Garage (Singapore)

"I think this book is great. It covers all the stuff I teach, in a really clear but detailed way. I always find that different people take different amounts of theory to others, but this would be a great book to keep referring back to during lessons and song learning. It's pretty much exactly how I would make a guitar tutor book." Kieren Wade, Guitar tutor & Performer (UK)

"This top value eBook and MP3 package covers a wide range topics essential for all guitarists. Over 100 pages with plenty of information and solid advice that a player can dip into as needed. Evans does not gloss over the often neglected area of reading notation for rhythm. There are many examples to practice (melodies and rhythm patterns) with the backing tracks. I was especially interested in the final section of exercises to keep your body guitar-ready. A very useful tool to help you progress with your guitar playing." Hedley Timbs BA(Mus), Grad.Dip. Teaching (New Zealand)

"Would recommend this for anyone who is looking to get a really solid grip on how to play the guitar, and also to tutors who are looking at ways to improve their own tutoring abilities." Logan Ellis, Mgr. Spiderhands Productions Ltd (New Zealand)

"Learn to play Guitar is an ideal companion to support the beginner on their new found musical journey. Highly recommended." Liam Cain, BMus (hons) Professional Guitarist (UK)

"Had a look at the book and all I can say is....awesome. To me, it is well laid out, easy to look at and there is the supplemental material to top it off. The theory may get tedious for some...its hard to not teach theory but most people seem to have an aversion to it.....the idea of discipline I think." Gernot Schlegel - Professional Guitarist & Teacher (Canada)

"Plenty of detail that goes into posture, hand position, thumb position, etc. The notation and strumming is really good here because it builds up in stages. In a real life lesson, you can introduce it in this way piece by piece and not overwhelm the student." Michael Hanna, Grade 8 RS.Guitar - Larne Guitar School (Ireland)
