Media Santorella's New Teach Yourself Guitar

Teach Yourself Guitar published by Santorella Publications is the first in a series including CD that was initially created as an impulse product for a typical independent Guitar & Amp shop. In a market flooded with similar products, we swiftly learned that this edition was more than just a quick fix for the beginner. Although titled Teach Yourself Guitar, it contains much more than basic instruction. Accordingly it has become the standard for countless educators as a private lesson study guide. Our challenge was to create an approach to guitar that was easy to understand and followed a logical step by step progression. To truly master the guitar, one must have their eyes set on short-term goals in order to achieve long-term results. Santorella met this challenge by providing a proven curriculum to learning the many facets of playing the guitar in this guide.
