Reply To: Guitar Method Book
I use Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Vol. 1 for note reading and melodies on guitar. I like that they use lots of diagrams and pictures and introduce notes in the first position one string at a time, and use familiar melodies that progressively add the new notes in. But, I don’t like the book for chords at all.
I absolutely love, love, love First Year Guitar Method from Class Guitar Resources. Great comprehensive method presented in units and includes a lot of fun lessons on power chords, blues progressions, fingerpicking, barre chords, and I love they way they introduce chords – always in I-IV-V7 progressions. I use it for my 7th and 8th graders and it’s amazing!
