About this item

The bestselling music guide - now updated and with a FREE DVD!

Have you always wanted to learn to play guitar? Who wouldn't? Think of Jimi Hendrix wailing away on his Stratocaster... Chuck Berry duck-walking across the stage to "Johnny B. Goode"... B.B. King making his "Lucille" cry the blues. No doubt about it--guitars are cool.

Guitar For Dummies gives you everything a beginning or intermediate guitarist needs: from buying a guitar to tuning it, playing it, and caring for it, this book has it all--and you don't even need to know how to read music. Full of photo-illustrated exercises and songs you can play to practice the techniques discussed in each section, this step-by-step guitar guide will take you through the basics and beyond before you can say "Eric Clapton".

  • Helps you choose the guitar and equipment that best fits your needs and budget
  • Shows you how to build strength and dexterity while playing
  • Teaches you to play in different styles, including rock, blues, folk, jazz, and classical

Fully revised and updated, with an all-new interactive DVD packed with video and audio clips that help you learn, tune, and play along, Guitar For Dummies is the perfect introductory guide for any novice acoustic or electric guitar player.

CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of the e-book file, but are available for download after purchase.

Customer review by 2Delsol

5.0 stars by 2Delsol

I've tried simpler guitar lesson books, but they did not go into detail or explain things for complete beginners. I had almost given up on learning guitar. However, after reading the first few chapters of this book, I was able to learn some chords and play simple songs within 3 days. It has many useful tips for practicing. Contrary to most lesson books, this one also includes information on how to maintain your instrument.
