General Method Books

Hal Leonard Guitar Method Books 1, 2, 3 and Completed Edition

All three books in one is available.  I recommend getting the editions that come with  CD’s and tracks to listen to and play along with.  They are available at Guitar Center, Amazon, or call your local music store.

Hal Leonard- Guitar For Kids.

Available as either a method and sonfbook, or songbook alone.  Great introduction to playing basic chords and songs!

Classical Method Books

Charles Duncan, A Modern Approach to Classical Guitar, Books 1,2,3

Great method book for introduction to classical guitar.  I use this with many beginners of all styles because it provides such a great foundation.

Suzuki Guitar Method Books by  Suzuki.  All very good,  although I feel best used with a supplemetary method.

Frederick Noad, Solo Guitar Playing Book 1, and 2

Great book for beginners of all ages, but pretty meaty.  Not recommended for the young beginner.  Ideal for adults and older beginners.
