Knack Guitar for Everyone is a self-instruction book for beginners to intermediates, fully illustrated with 350 full-color photographs and more than fifty exercises and songs in musical notation. By Dick Weismann, who is the author of numerous successful music books and has performed on the Today Show, it covers everything one needs to know about the instrument itself-the parts, different kinds of guitars, care for guitars-and provides the basics of reading guitar music and playing. Lessons are geared toward achievable results, and sidebars address various styles and techniques. Plus, there are a book's worth of play-along audio tracks available for free at knackbooks.com/guitar.
