Unrated Critic Reviews for Guitar Method

Seattle PI

Intermediate players could use this book for review and to increase their skill in the later sections, and advanced guitar players might not find the beginning sections to be of much value and might want to just stick with the single Mastering Acoustic Blues Guitar Method.

For that beginner guitarist who’s interested in learning the guitar, choosing the wrong or too difficult guitar method book could discourage them completely from learning how to play a fantastic instrument.
