The complete guitar method together in one volume. Practical advice, clear layout, and a play-along CD give you all you need to know from when you first pick up a guitar. Step-by-step pictures take you from first-day exercises tuning and setting up, to playing riffs, chords, and whole songs with a backing track. Develop your strumming and fingerstyle technique, and discover the secrets of hammer-ons, pull-offs, vibrato effects and string bends. Includes a "Guide to the Guitar" pull-out chart.
