    I purchased this book for myself when I stared teaching a beginning guitar class for seniors to get ideas for how to present different techniques and subject matter. I ended up purchasing copies for the class. It is a great book for beginners for reference and for practice. The material...

    is easily understood and the CD is good for practice at home. I recommend it for beginning guitar players and for those needing music reading info.
