Reviews - What do customers think about The Guitar Book: For Those Who Have Just Landed on the Planet Earth!?
This is a great book !! Jul 25, 2001
I have learned more from this book in a far shorter amount of time than I have learned from a guitar teacher I am taking lessons with. I tried other books and this one blows them away. There's not alot of technical talk or theory in this book, just good solid hands on instruction. This book is very similar to the Author's other titles: " The Pre-Stage"... & "The First Stage"... I highly recommend any of Chris Lopezs' books !! GET THIS BOOK !!
A great way to learn how to play guitar..... Sep 29, 1999
This guitar book is very clear and to the point with bold and easy to understand illustrations. I also highly recommend The 'Next Stage' Guitar Book - Learn How To Play Scale Patterns & Tabs Easily & Quickly! Both these guitar books make a great package in learning how to play guitar.
