    My son's (acoustic) guitar teacher was thrilled. He was expecting me to buy the electric guitar book as he didn't know that this one had been published. he says that it is very good.

    This book follows the excellent format of the existing Rockschool books and exams, with the added advantages that the songs are based on well-known songs, and that you can use an acoustic guitar for all grades (the existing grades require an electric guitar from about Grade 3 onwards). I felt it was slightly more difficult than the existing Debut Grade book.
