I had never previously had any exposure to musical instruments. I get 30 minutes a week with my teacher who is fabulous but he throws a lot of information at me and I don't always immediately grasp what he is saying or demonstrating.
This book has been a godsend in that it very comprehensive and explains chords, scales, and music theory concepts in an easy to understand manner.
The illustrations are clear and extremely helpful. I find that I use the manual constantly to reinforce or clarify my learning and it has - along with a lot of practice!
If you are already an accomplished player, you may find this to be redundant of what you know, but for me it has been extremely helpful. A friend of mine picked this book up out of his local library in and we spent the next decade swapping it back and forth. Needless to say, his copy is now almost three decades overdue. Everything I know about music theory and modal playing is contained within this book.
Get this book. It is amazing and you can own it for the cost of two issues of any guitar magazine currently in production. This is my second Guitar Handbook. My first one served me well for almost ten years.
This speaks to the fact that the information in this book is as relevant today as it has always been. I still refer to it regularly. And every time I read it I learn something new. I use YouTube and other resources, of course, but this reference book is hands down the best, quickest way to reference chords and scales. What I like about this book is that it covers basically everything about the guitar. The first section is "Guitar Innovators".
The list includes all styles of guitar players and even bass players. From there the author heads into types of guitars- acoustic, electric, and bass.
And that's not just a history lesson, he goes even deeper on the subject including the construction or anatomy of guitars. The real meat of this book is the "Playing The Guitar" section.
It's all in here: tuning, technique, scales, chords.. It's written for everyone from beginners to advanced players. There is also a "Guitar Maintenance" section which is another bonus in this book.
As well as a "Chord Dictionary" in the back. This is the most well-rounded guitar book that I have. This is a fantastic overview of the guitar. It's perfect if you already have a background in music, and want to know more about the guitar. It doesn't talk down to the reader, nor does it start with lame beginner exercises. It gives a very self motivated reader enough information to teach themselves what they need to know about guitar, including history and styles.
