"How to Play Guitar" contains everything the new or intermediate guitar player needs to know to really get to grips with making music on this most popular of instruments. Highly practical, it leads you from the basics of how to strum, pick and play simple chords, through the various elements of playing rhythm and melodies, to more complicated chords and tunings. It includes further techniques from slurs to harmonics, and a section on performing. The clear text is accompanied by illustrative photos and diagrams, and the guide is complemented by a useful chord finder, examples of scales and modes, a glossary and further reading.
