    I am currently working through this book, and I give it five stars. It teaches you the notes on the first four strings, it introduces you to chords in the keys of a flat, and it has great technique building sixteenth note studies. It also some nice guitar solos, which...

    are intermediate in difficulty. When you complete this book, you are well on your way to becoming a good guitarist!
