Could not use this book. Most books display the chord diagrams in one of two standard ways: 1) upright - as though the guitar head is facing up, or 2) sideways - with the highest sounding string (high E) on the top. This book is the first one I've seen with the chord diagrams drawn out sideways, but the lowest sounding string (low E) on the top. For someone who is used to the other way of seeing the chords (#2 above), it was disorienting to see them this way.

NOT for BEGINNERS. The title is very misleading: "10 Easy Lessons..."
Not easy. Exampe: Lesson 3 covers every single major, minor, seventh, minor seventh, and major seventh chord! (That would take like 5, or 10 real life lessons!) Including some barred shapes that I've never played in my 45 years. But it doesn't stop there. It covers strumming and finger picking too! Wow! All in the third "easy" lesson. Ridiculous. Lesson 4 covers music theory, from arpeggios to inversions, diatonic, chromatic... I would say this could work for an intermediate to advanced student who is scholastically inclined. For others, find another book. By page 63, he still hasn't taught you to play a single song. Not for beginners.
