Learning to play guitar is not about studying---it’s about playing---so it should be FUN! If you’re looking to rock out, do you want to spend hours trying to figure out how to read music, and then plunk away at "The Old Gray Mare?" We didn’t think so. No, we think you should play right away, first by learning basic chords and tunes before tackling any music reading or theory. Then, you’ll learn lead guitar techniques, power chords, scales, improvisation, and other exciting rock guitar concepts. In short, this is not your dad’s guitar method. Pick up that guitar, open this book, and PLAY!
