The real question here is if I can wait until after the beginning of June for the chance of winning a free one, or do I cave in after losing the April 1st contest.

So David, I've become quite accustomed to using Amazon or Barnes and Noble. But, how does one go about purchasing an autographed copy of this book? 8)

I've been waiting for this one to come out. I've even asked about it. I do have to confess though, that this only caught my eye today. 20 days after it comes out. Meds are bad, m-kay! :oops:

Autographed copies are very easy to come by:

If you buy a copy and send it to me, I'll autograph it and send it back. Or you can buy a book directly from me and I'll send it to you autographed.

And there will be more giveaways for both of the new books. Paul and I are even thinking about doing a couple of "trifecta" giveaways (all three books - guitar, rock guitar and bass) for around the holiday season.

Hi David

Glad to hear you got the book as I had some problems with a number of my shipping overseas winners. Hopefully they're all ending up in the right places now!

Please feel free to write me if you have any questions at all and also please let me know about any mistakes you find or corrections you think could be made. Either post here or PM me or email me directly at dhodgeguitar@aol.com

Congrats again!

Peace
