The Complete Idiot's Guide to Playing the Guitar, by Frederick M. Goad

Don't take the title too seriously because The Complete Idiot's Guide to Playing the Guitar by Frederick M. Goad is a great way to learn about the history of the guitar as well as how to play it. It covers everything from learning how to read music to performing simple maintenance. Regular music notation as well tablature is discussed, and chord diagrams are introduced. Different styles of music (Flamenco, Latin, Country, Blues and Rock and Roll) are covered. It's simply written and easy to follow. Graphics complement the text, and a special CD-ROM is included. This is a great book for the beginner or intermediate player. It should be included in every guitarist's book collection.
