Guitar For Dummies

Embrace it if that's what'll motivate you. I personally prefer the classical emphasis of the Idiot's Guide alternative. That said, I always enjoy picking up options in both series for kicks and catch whatever the other left out. Dummies is more mainstream genre and dummed down of course!

Wording wise, I have found the Dummies to try too hard to spell things out like a casually-spoken textbook while Idiot's has this more overarching understanding, which I tend to learn better from.

Both books also use an almost completely different set of practice songs, furthering the fun of studying both. I just want it known that both are good books, but for my own style the Idiot's Guide shines and the Dummies was an expansion of content. What I did want was a good source on reading music, and the book doesn't disappoint. Rather than simply provide a reference to the symbols used on a musical staff, it walks you through the process of reading some simple tunes, and includes tablature for comparison.

Aug 24, Zevi rated it liked it. This is a decent book for those just starting out learning the guitar. But don't expect to go too far as many, many intermediate and advanced topics are not included. Once you are finished with this book, if it helped you, be sure to go on to the book How to Become a Guitar Player from Hell because it contains almost all the concepts this book leaves out, such as arpeggios, finger tapping, artificial and muted harmonics, exotic scales, modes, advanced chords, "outside" playing, and more.

It's relatively understandable and mostly focused on strumming songs in popular American and British rock and country music, which is likely what the average American beginner guitar player wants in their learning experience.

Music notation is in the appendix rather than the main book--standard notation is often seem as an annoying obstacle on the way to actually playing.

Most techniques are relevant to rock and country--techniques for less-popular genres were left out or briefly and ineffectively mentioned in a later chapters on folk, classical, and jazz. Not to make fun of the stereotype, but this is for the ol' fast and lazy American approach. Embrace it if that's what'll motivate you.

Thank you! The Complete Idiot's Guide felt more like my old guitar teacher when I was a child, an old fart that made me play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star a hundred times before he thought I had it right.

Thank Goodness he was a sweet year old, because it was creepy enough as it was, being in that little room with the dark paneling in that cellar of that quaint music store. As this older gentleman taught me how to tap my foot and strum my cheap wooden guitar that my father had downloadd for me in the guitar shop above, I had great day dreams.

In other words he bored me to death, yet he could have made a better effort at keeping my attention had he at least told me some funny stories, even if they were made up. Maybe then I would not have been day dreaming that I was on a beach splashing through the waves of salty sea water and collecting seashells and would have learned something. Maybe I would have become the next Johnny Rodriguez, who was a cousin of my fathers when I was a child, who actually had his own record albums then. Johnny Rodriguez came to visit one summer and that was it, that next week I was at the music store with my dad.
