- What people are saying:
- Essentials was a great choice for me. I had played a bit back in college and wanted to refresh my memory on how certain chords where played and get more into soloing. Essentials is a short little book but it had everything I needed and more. Personally I got into the lead patterns and the MP3s of the chord progressions so I could start soloing right away, and it got me right on track ... N. Thorson
- I'm so glad I found this little gem. All the on-line materials via the member's area and having contact with Bruce was awesome he really got me thinking more about how I was playing and making sure I was using the right technique. Bruce recommended Guitar Physiology his DVD production with truefire.com which knocked me out, since I saw clearly a lot of bad habits I was already getting into. I'm starting 1st Steps for a Beginning Guitarist now that I feel prepared by Essentials.... M. Tuttle
- Got a guitar for my birthday-- thanks Mom! Then I got this book as a download. For 3.50 it was well worth the price because it got me "up and running" right away which is very encouraging for a total beginner. It was great to have all the chords I need to know on just a few pages, it really made accessing them much easier. I also purchased the Jam Tracks Volume One with Essentials which is lots of fun to play along with now that I know what I am doing. Essentials has jam tracks too but the big download of Jam Tracks Volume One has some rad sounds .... F. Franklin
