I wish I’d had this book

"I wish I’d had this book when I learned to play the guitar!

I haven’t played the guitar for quite a while. I just got fed up with my lack of dexterity and how difficult it was for my small hand to wrap around the neck of the guitar. I tried piano after that but with similar luck. However, after reading Peter’s book I really want to pick up an instrument once again.

The book covers everything necessary to make the foray into playing the guitar a lot less daunting than other books I’ve read on the subject. The information is laid out sequentially, with exercises that involve the whole body and not just learning notes and fingerings. It is written in a very clear style, with lots of images and metaphors that make the information come alive.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone thinking about taking up an instrument. Although the information is guitar-specific, the principles Peter talks about are universal and can easily be translated to other musical endeavours.
