About the Book
Learning to play the guitar has never been easier! Idiot's Guides: Playing Guitar begins with an introduction to different types of guitars and their parts, followed by helpful information on how to choose a guitar. You'll learn how to tune the guitar (supplemented with online audio), how to correctly hold it, how to read tablature, and about basic rhythm. Much of the remainder of the book gives you easy-to-follow instructions on learning chords, and each lesson is followed by a fun practice session and a simple song with which to practice the newly learned chords. In addition to over-the-shoulder color photos showing fingering positions and accompanying two-color chord charts that show exactly what to do, you can hear the chords, exercises, and songs performed from additional content online.

My Take on the Book
I have been wanting a book for sometime that simply puts together the facts about how to play the guitar without a lot of technical information that I cannot understand and this book does it! The book was easy to understand and provides everyone, from new to old with some great basics. Everything from chord progression to tuning and so much more, this book has a bit of everything in it.
