Just finished reviewing the Hal Leonard Guitar Tab Method Books 1 & 2.
I think I'll use this book for young adults and "young at heart" students. The song index of well known pop, rock, metal and TV melodies is extensive (over 100!). That's what makes this book so much fun! It minimizes the need to know music notation, just rhythms and time signatures. But, it does teach the "names" of notes as a secondary learning event. The primary push is to get hands on the guitar and PLAY! It will bring up a new student fast and teach TAB to a more experienced student even faster. It has a CD so you can hear how it should sound but it becomes unnecessary except for the more complex rhythm licks/melody lines or for songs that you don't already "know". There's even entire songs at the end when standard chords are introduced. By that time, your hands should be use to holding down single notes and 2 or 3 note chords. A much better way to introduce full up chords (all 6 strings), wait for the hand strength and pick coordination to develop first.
A great book series!
