Reviews of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Playing Rock Guitar”
“In my opinion, this book is a very nice balance between readability, music theory, and guitar technique.”
“I have been a fan of David Hodge for sometime now after seeing one of his lessons on guitar noise, a website I cannot speak highly enough of. David’s way of teaching is very simple and effective. When I found out he was doing a book it was a must have. The book leads you through chord progressions, time signatures, rests, string bends, double stops, triplets, scales and modes to name but a few.”
