Good book for all levals learn lots of cord i use it daily to practice
Great book but it might not be basic enough for the novice who knows nothing about music or the guitar. It is directed and worded for us "dummies" but it assumes some rudimentary knowledge.
The writing is very hard 2 understand and not as easy as it says it is
I disagree with you bc it means that they are bad at it. Nobody would call anybody dummies unless they know but that is pretty much very unlikely.
You are better than that
