"Children really love playing along to the backing tracks. The content of is well thought out and each musical aspect is introduced gradually as to not swamp the child with too much too soon. I recommend this book to both teachers and learners." -- Ben Parker, Bachelor of Musical Arts - Jazz (CPIT Jazz School New Zealand) “Gareth has written a really well thought out first book for teaching young children how to play. This one is definitely the one I'll be using.” -- Bob Lucas, Bob Lucas Guitar Studios (Missouri US) Guitar for Kids is a fun all-colour guide on the first steps of learning to play Guitar with over 70 photographic examples, purpose-made diagrams and cartoons. Starting with advice on buying your first guitar, how to hold the guitar and how to tune it, the music then begins with easy-to-play melodies using only open strings (open strings means only the plucking hand is used), before moving to simple pieces in which the fretting hand is also used. The book goes into detail for some basic techniques because you're better off getting it right from the start rather than develop bad habits. Tablature Based: Guitar for Kids uses mostly guitar tablature making this popular instrument more easily accessible for beginners (as do most adult guitar method books). The rhythmical aspect of Sight-reading is covered within the Chords section which eases-in the later Sight-reading section because the only new thing to learn will be reading different notes from the musical staff. Audio Tracks: Guitar for Kids comes with 47 downloadable audio tracks with musical pieces in styles such as Rock, Blues, Pop, Flamenco, Jazz and Reggae. Each piece has a full band demo track and accompanying backing track with guitar part removed for you to play over. What Else?: EZ chords are covered (easy chords with less notes) and are accompanied with diagrams of the full versions for later on, or if you feel like a challenge. There’s an introduction to Power chords with Rock pieces to play named after healthy greens “Broccolli Rockilly” and “Rocket Salad”. There's a Blues and Rock duet with backing band tracks to play with a friend, and at the end there is a Quiz, no cheating! Grab a copy today! Please Note: The eBook includes musical pieces so is not suitable for smaller screens. "I looked through Guitar for Kids thoroughly when I received it and I think it is really cool! I will be recommending that my students buy one. I would be happy to recommend." -- Chris Nastri, Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) Arizona US "I think it is very well done. The layout is definitely kid-friendly and I like how it starts with TAB before jumping into standard notation. The guidance on holding the pick like holding a pencil is very good. I am going to steal that if you don't mind. I would say that some of the text might be a bit much for some younger students. This can distract from the primary task at hand. I think, with young students especially, it is difficult to find the right balance between providing enough information and giving more than needed. I would err on the side of less-is-more. As far as the overall layout and approach, I think it's an excellent job." -- Curt Brady, Professional Guitarist & Teacher (Virginia US) "The book is bringing very fundamental steps in learning how to start playing the guitar for its readers. Readers will get acquainted with a guitar as a tool and learn how to play it in the correct way. The most important point for beginners, which concludes the guitar technique of balancing right and left hand as well. Readers are able to learn how to play music through tablature, how to read conventional notation and how to play basic chords. Guitar for Kids is also providing very useful audio samples of presenting sample melodies so that they will hear how the melody should be performed when they are playing the guitar. Readers of this book who want to know how to play the guitar in a professional way should pay extra attention to guitar techniques, which is presented here. It is very important to get the right gestures in holding the plectrum, how to pluck the strings and how to use the fretting hand. The only thing that the book lacks is explanation of need of using the metronome when practicing guitar technique. The book Guitar for Kids is written in a very acceptable way accompanied by lots of pictures. I am recommending to read this book not only for kids, but also for everyone who wants to start playing the guitar in the right way." -- Tomas Schmidt, Guitar teacher & Recording artist (Slovakia) "Really detailed and thought out well. It's good that this book presents the easy to difficult chords. I like the introduction of notation as well. When you present it in stages, it's not too hard for people to pick up." -- Michael Hanna, Grade 8 RS.Guitar - Larne Guitar School (N.Ireland) "It looks like Gareth spent a lot of time writing Guitar for Kids. I think the illustrations are very helpful in keeping people's minds interested and engaged. The fact that it also includes audio will help them understand how it should sound as well." -- Tim Woosley - Music Director, Lincoln School of Music (Nebraska)

Whether they are learning to speak, write or perform a sporting activity, young children learn physical skills naturally by imitating those around them and they often learn to read words through repetition and association. These are the same approaches to learning that this book, 'Copy, Play and Learn Guitar the Easy, Fun Way for Young People' uses in teaching children how to learn to play the guitar and read and interpret music. Based on songs designed to engage and appeal to young people, this book aims to develop musicianship, note reading, fine motor skills and encourages children to recognise and play recurring rhythmic and melodic patterns in varying harmonic settings as they piece together an evolving story based on a boy, his friends and family. For the teacher, finger dexterity exercises of both hands are isolated and drilled and for the student, these are turned into real songs. By observing and imitating a visually logical pattern of notes as demonstrated by their teacher, a young person can confidently play the easy and fun pieces to a vibrant backing track. The child develops the ability to process and interpret pitch and rhythm as they play the guitar!
