Thread Name: Learning to play the guitar
Subject: RE: Learning to play the guitar
I'd like to suggest a book I came across a while back--Guitar From Scratch by Bruce Emery. If you want to start with the typical folk approach--to accompany your voice singing, it looks very good. In particular, he takes great pains to discuss some issues that (I suspect) most books assume your teacher will tell you, like efficient fingering of chord transitions. I wish I'd started that way.
