Have you always wanted to play guitar? Who wouldn't? Think of Jimi Hendrix wailing away on his Stratocaster. . . Chuck Berry duck-walking across the stage to "Johnny B. Goode". . .B.B. King making his "Lucille" cry the blues. No doubt about it—guitars are cool. 

Guitar For Dummies 2nd Edition tells you everything a beginning or intermediate guitarist needs to know: from buying a guitar to tuning it, playing it, and caring for it, this book has it all—and you don't even need to know how to read music. Full of photo-illustrated exercises and songs you can play to practice the techniques discussed in each section, this step-by-step guide will take you through the basics and beyond before you can say "Eric Clapton." You'll learn how to: 
Match yourself with the guitar and equipment that fits your needs and budget 
Select the right accessories: amps, picks, pedals, capos, cases, and other goodies 
Pick and strum to produce a clean, clear, buzz-free tone 
Know whether you're really in tune 
Play melodies without reading music 
Perform basic guitar maintenance and repairs 
Build strength and dexterity while playing 
Play in different styles, including rock, blues, folk, jazz, and classical 
Make your guitar talk with bends and slides! 

Fully revised and updated, with an all new interactive CD that allows readers to listen, learn, tune, and play along, Guitar For Dummies 2nd Edition is the perfect introductory guide for any novice acoustic or electric guitar player.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and everything.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals
or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content
is excellent but with images and video clips, this website
could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche.
Great blog!
