    This book and CD set introduces students to the basics of jazz guitar. (Please note that this is not a book for complete beginners to the guitar; rather, it provides instruction to help intermediate students branch out into another genre.). The first chapter provides an overview of concepts students need to know before proceeding into jazz-specific techniques - open position and barre chords, reading music in standard notation, blues progression/strumming, and pentatonic scale fingerings. The rest of the chapters teach students how to play jazz, one lesson at a time. Each chapter is divided into lessons, and each lesson is further divided into two separate sections. The "A" sections deal with harmonic and chordal topics, and the "B" sections teach about single line improvisation. (This allows students to focus just on chords and harmony, or just on improvising, if they wish. Of course, studying both sections in each lesson is recommended for the most well-rounded jazz education.). The lessons build upon each other, covering basic theory, scale fingerings, triads, types of chords, and more. The book features easy-to-read chord and scale diagrams, plus a full-length song or etude to accompany each new concept. The book uses standard music notation only—no TAB—to encourage students to become strong music readers. The audio CD corresponds to the lessons, allowing students to hear how the songs and examples should be played. Finally, the "Coda" section in the back gives suggestions for practicing, honing techniques, and performing solos that can be applied no matter where you are in your studies. A fun, accessible approach to jazz guitar that will inspire a lifetime of music enjoyment. ~ Lisa

    Start ‘em young with this kid-size, real wood acoustic guitar from Hohner. Nylon strings are easier on young fingers than standard steel strings, and the geared tuning system is the same type used on full-size guitars. 30” length is a good size for young children, and it comes with a song book and color stickers to make learning the basics a little easier.

    Playing music together as a family sounds quite lovely, but what if you don’t even play an instrument? Not a problem with this simple guitar book! This book is formatted with a child’s lesson on the right hand page and a parent’s guide on the left hand page. Think of it as a teacher’s manual and student book all in one. The best part? This book assumes that you, the parent, have no prior musical knowledge – only the ability to read and relay information. It also comes with handy teaching tips and practice suggestions so you can help your child develop good playing habits without even knowing them yourself. While you’re at it, you might as well learn alongside your child!

    In terms of structure, this series takes a slightly different approach than other Alfred books, starting with chords and moving into notes on the strings rather than the opposite. All in all, the amount of information learned appears to be the same at each book level. Included is a CD to play along with for extra practice. 80-90 softcover pages. – Laura

    I met the author of this book at a home school convention and explained that I had tried and failed several times to learn to play the guitar. He showed me this book, which claims to teach you how to play over 30 worship songs on the guitar in just 12 weeks. The book starts with the basics: how to hold the guitar, how to position your hands, which strings are which and how to tune them. It then presents three basic (and easy) chords and launches you into an easy arrangement of Amazing Grace. It is exciting to quickly be able to strum a familiar tune that you and your family can sing along with. The book continues to present a couple of new chords every lesson (week) with several more songs that can then be added to your repertoire when those chords are mastered. This book is also nicely sprinkled with Bible verses and quotes from Godly people. On 3 -...A-maz-ing grace, how sweet... ~ Jerry
