    A great set of guitar materials, especially for the beginner and the intermediary artist. There cannot be two opinions about that. Tennant has a fine, not too formal, but very paedagogical approach. The repertoire sections are carefully chosen, and the DVD is top notch as well. Full kudos to Scott...

    for this guide, which will be a helpful tool for budding guitarists for years to come. It's worth every penny several times over.
