A Journey To Guitarland With Maestro Armadillo – Guitar Book Review

a journey to guitarland with maestro armadillo“This is very cool stuff for kids”, according to Brian May who – just for the couple of folks who read this and perhaps don’t know who he is – plays guitar in ‘Queen’.

So, if you are a skeptic and like to know things for sure, take Brian’s word – he knows what he’s talking about.

I’ve been teaching guitar beginners for a long time now. My youngest student was around 6, the oldest was a woman in her early eighties. When working with children, especially young ones, getting them to focus and keep their attention on task can be very difficult. And while there’s a plethora of children’s guitar books and other instructional resources out there, I’ve never found a single book that did such a wonderful introduction of the instrument.

Yet, in my opinion, the ‘introduction phase’, if you will, is undoubtedly the most crucial element. Because if you’re successful in that first step, chances are you’re on a good path on to your guitar journey.
