Written by a professional, full time guitar teacher, 15 Essential Guitar Lessons for Beginners, teaches you to play the right way from the first time you pick up the instrument.
"The most common scenario I come across as a guitar teacher is the adult who is self-taught with bad habits: Things that should be sorted out on day one and have been left unchecked for years have developed into brick walls stopping any progress.

I wrote this book to try to help people get things right, right from the start".
