  • April 26, 2008 Back to square one

    I have been playing the guitar, both classical and electric for a number of years but my ability to read music had always been slow and tedious. Difficult pieces would be broken down and memorised bar by bar, a story I'm sure you've heard before. I recently purchased...

    a book called "The secrets of successful practising for Guitarists" were in the author highly recommended this book and so far I find it a great help. Even though I have only reached page 23 I find myself reading and playing directly from the sheet music. So far I am very pleased with my progress.

    i was very pleased with this book unlike other books it throws you in the deep end of the pool and you just gotta swim! this book doesn't really have much text, its a beginning guitarist book and it doesn't really have recognizable songs because they are all...

    originals or something to that effect, ughs i really don't want to give a review i just moved a fridge and yeah; just checking my email... so its pretty good if you want to be a guitarist(like actually play not know a couple of rock riffs and how to read tabs) and know a thing or two about music.
