    Such an Excellent gift!!!

    I bought this book as a gift for my husband this holiday , he was so excited when I gave it to him he's been teaching himself how to play the guitar and piano all in a 11/2, after he got this book Iv'e noticed a huge improvement in his musical skills, he's more motivated to branch out and compose his own songs and much more confident in hid playing when we have guests; I highly recommend this book for anyone who is practicing the musical arts and would like to learn a little more of compositions this book will surely help!!!!!!!
