After viewing the videos and reading the book that’s included in the Learn & Master Guitar course, I quickly learned that this is a must for any artists or songwriter. I would highly recommend this product. It’s first class."
- Sandy Mason, Hit Songwriter (Garth Brooks' #1 Hit, "Two Pina Coladas" #1 and Crystal Gayle's "When I Dream")
A perfect complement to the Lesson DVDs, Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar Lesson Book contains all of the songs and exercises demonstrated in the video lessons, as well as several more, so you can continue practicing at your own pace for as long as you need before moving on to the next lesson.
The Lesson Book follows the same path as the DVDs, starting you from the very beginning and continuing to a master level.
Here is an outline of each session in the lesson book, along with one page from each session. Each session has many pages but this will give you a preview of what is inside the lesson book. Click on each small image for a larger view.
