Add one guitar and this ultimate course to become an accomplished musician in no time at all! Whether you're dreaming of being a professional, or just want to have fun singing and strumming, you can trade air guitar for a real one with this guide full of instruction and inspiration. The heart of the book: a playing section, divided into 20 self-contained lessons, each introducing new ideas and techniques. And, they cover a range of styles: rock, folk, country, jazz, blues, and classical. You'll start right at the beginning, with how to stand and sit properly while holding the instrument, and find out how to tune it, do fingerpicking, master timing and rhythm, and improvise. An extensive chord dictionary contains over 1,000 chord fingerings. "Bonus" biographical portraits of the pioneer greats, like Les Paul, Jimi Hendrix, and Keith Richards, with details of their equipment and a discography of their key recordings.
