Reviews of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Guitar”

David Hodge’s book has everything I need, and most likely anything you’ll need, too, to grow in skill, confidence, and ability. In the two months since I’ve been using this book I’ve gone far beyond anything I used to do — or even hoped to do.

As I progressed in the book (and accompanying CD–so helpful!)I have upgraded to an Ovation guitar, joined a band and played my first solo gig at a Memorial Service for a friend. This book is a resource I highly recommend! I think I would still be floundering without it.

Get an idea what this book is like by checking out some of David’s free guitar columns on Guitar Noise.
