I have a number of thoughts about it.
Mostly, that I wish I had had a book like this when I first started playing guitar.
It's Pete's banjo book...only for guitar...with a little extra.
It's all about playing a guitar... not folk stuff.
It is very basic, but also it has some very complex stuff.. complex for me.
Lots of technique....
3 ways to make a particular chord.
What I believe it does more than anything is organize things.
Most of you who are better guitar players know just about everything that's in this book....
Except, I'd say...one or two things.....
And those one or two things makes it worth having.
If you have a kid or grand kid....who is interested in guitar, or might be, this is a great book...because of its content... and organization.
You could get on Skype with your kid and go through this book...
