    I am very disappointed with the purchase of this book. The cd is only sound with no instruction at all. The book is more on reading music then fingerstyle lessons.

  • November 08, 2008 Starting Guitar

    I just love finger-style guitar as played by artists like Chet Atkins and I have been trying to learn finger-style guitar by book for years as teachers have always been too expensive. This book and CD are pretty good, but, it assumes a prior knowledge of music. The...

    exercises make you concentrate on the finger work, but if you don't know music this becomes very difficult. Experience has taught me that slow progress is best. With this system going slowly is the key, but I really believe that a very simplistic, almost child-like approach to teaching guitar is still desperately needed for struggling beginners like me. Teachers and musicians who demonstrate methods like this have been familiar with music and their instrument all their lives and forget us dumbos who are only beginning.

  • February 05, 2008 Great start to fingerstyle

    This has been a great book to get me started with fingerstyle but it really isn't for beginning guitarists. It is beginning fingerstyle for sure, but you need to know a few things before you play their stuff. For me, it was great. It forced me to unlearn so...

    much and it messes with my head as I try to play with the proper fingering. Good stuff! And it is good music to play...some of it is really beautiful and some has a good groove. It covers so many styles of music. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait for the intermediate book!

  • May 03, 2007 Good Primer

    Of all the books around, amd I see a lot as a guitar teacher, this is the one students seem to make the most progress. It stasrts fairly easily (I'd suggest Basix TAB book 1 and 2 if you've done nothing before) and progresses steadily to quite a...

    good level of playing. This is book 1 of a three part series. You might also like to look at Travis Picking by Mark Hanson or the old classic - Chet Atkins Method - still a great source of nice tunes to play in the early stages.

  • May 25, 2006 Excellent Intro to Fingerstyle

    If you are looking to get started in Fingerstyle, this is a great resource. It starts out with some simple patterns, progresses to slightly trickier timing. The next step is to combime the patterns into very enjoyable etudes. The accompanying CD illustrates how beautifully musical these exercises can be. The...

    music offered is a good variety of instumentals: folky, blues, ragtime, bass melody, harp-style and more. I bought this book/CD for an alternative to the other fingerstyle lessons I have that feature the boom-chuck sound of country blues. The music in this book also features an alternating thumb-picked bass, but the bass lines are more integrated into the music, so it is an excellent change for me - just what I wanted. When I finish working through this book, I will definitely buy the intermediate part of the series.
