Led Zeppelin Guitar Method: Immerse Yourself in the Music and Mythology of Led Zeppelin as You Learn to Play Guitar (Book & Enhanced CD)

Led Zeppelin Guitar Method: Immerse Yourself in the Music and Mythology of Led Zeppelin as You Learn to Play Guitar (Book & Enhanced CD) by Ron Manus and L.C. Harnsberger was released on April 1, 2012 by Alfred Publishing & no, this is no April Fools' joke, this book is impressive.

The book is geared towards those people that are Led Zeppelin listeners that want to take the step forward to be like Jimmy Page and play guitar. It does a very thorough job to instruct the reader on the basics, like how to hold the guitar, how to hold a guitar pick, different parts of the guitar plus how to read guitar tablature and various parts of the musical staff. This is all before one note of a Led Zeppelin song is transcribed.

Led Zeppelin Guitar Method features 26 Led Zeppelin songs to learn. Now, if there's anything you retain, please understand that you must use the included Enhanced CD to play along with and not the original studio CDs. The tablature in the book is written in a different key and would not sound right to your ears. The book starts out very basically with one-note melodies and builds up to multi-note chords and fingerpicking exercises.

Whether you have never picked up a guitar before or are looking to hone up on your skills, Led Zeppelin Guitar Method is a very thorough book to learn from.
