Item description for Musicians Notebook: Guitar (Musician's Notebook, the) by Matthew Teacher...
These notebooks are sure to inspire some beautiful music! No one knows better than Matthew Teacher how to create a successful music journal-his first, The Musician's Notebook, sold more than 200,000 copies. Now, for the first time, he has developed notebooks for the two most popular instruments: the piano and the guitar. Each one will feature inspirational quotes, words of advice, and wisdom from leading players, along with pages of sheet music just waiting to be filled and a section for note-taking. And they're both elegantly designed with rounded corners, and priced attractively for the gift-giving shopper. Musicians will especially appreciate the user-friendly, lay-flat flexi-bind format that's easy to write in and to work with during a performance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Musicians Notebook: Guitar (Musician's Notebook, the)?
Does the job, but could have a couple more features Aug 20, 2007
Basically, it's a bunch of staff paper with TAB lines and guitar chord blocks... good at what it's designed for, but there's not much in the way of extras. The quotes are kind of nice, but not exactly useful.
What would have been useful would have been a couple of pages of reference up front on music notation... I only remember half of it off the top of my head, and it'd be nice to be able to look up the right symbol in a convenient location. I can find one, print it and paste it into the book, but it'd have been pretty easy to include one.
The book is a comfortable "journal" size. The cover is of good, heavy stock, as is the paper. But if this is a "lay-flat flexi-bind format", I'll eat this book. It doesn't lay flat in any sense of the word, except when it's closed. It is a good stitched and glued binding, though, and pages won't start falling out if you bend the spine a lot, though it may crack between signatures.
The author does include an email address and an invitation to suggest how this journal might be made more useful, and I think I'll take him up on that.
Overall, it's a good value, and a basic work-horse tool. Just could have used an extra or two and actually provided the binding advertised.
