    Excellent beginner book information on the artist and song is a nice touch. This course should keep me motivated. Will be purchasing book 1 soon

    Unlike one very negative reviewer (don't know what he was expecting) I'm happy to say this book is excellent. It's a course book for the Debut grade exam, containing six pieces, along with artist and genre notes. There are also exercises, scales and arpeggios, together with examples of exam questions on chord voicing, sight reading, improvisation - all the expected things for a music exam. Your purchase also includes MP3 downloads of backing tracks, but I've not tried that yet. Don't hesitate.
