Admittedly, I may have rounded up this rating if I didn't read The Idiot's Guide to Guitar Playing first. Reading them one after the other makes it hard to review them beyond comparing and contrasting.

Guitar For Dummies seems to be designed with the same audience in mind as most YouTube beginner guitar tutorials. It's relatively understandable and mostly focused on strumming songs in popular American and British rock and country music, which is likely what the average American beginner guitar player wants in their learning experience. Music notation is in the appendix rather than the main book--standard notation is often seem as an annoying obstacle on the way to actually playing. Most techniques are relevant to rock and country--techniques for less-popular genres were left out or briefly and ineffectively mentioned in a later chapters on folk, classical, and jazz. Not to make fun of the stereotype, but this is for the ol' fast and lazy American approach. Embrace it if that's what'll motivate you. I personally prefer the classical emphasis of the Idiot's Guide alternative. That said, I always enjoy picking up options in both series for kicks and catch whatever the other left out.

I would say the Idiot's Guide and Dummies have a 50% overlap in this case, so you definitely can't go wrong with trying either. Dummies is more mainstream genre and dummed down (of course!), whereas Idiot's is more nerdy, frankly. Wording wise, I have found the Dummies to try too hard to spell things out like a casually-spoken textbook while Idiot's has this more overarching understanding, which I tend to learn better from. Both books also use an almost completely different set of practice songs, furthering the fun of studying both. I just want it known that both are good books, but for my own style the Idiot's Guide shines and the Dummies was an expansion of content. ( )

Guitar For DUMMIES, 2nd Edition VS The Complete Idiots Guide To Guitar

I found the Guitar For Dummies to be more lighthearted, while The Complete Idiot's Guide To Guitar to be worded more serious and to the point. The Complete Idiot's Guide felt more like my old guitar teacher when I was a child, an old fart that made me play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star a hundred times before he thought I had it right. Thank Goodness he was a sweet 70-year old, because it was creepy enough as it was, being in that little room with the dark paneling in that cellar of that quaint music store. As this older gentleman taught me how to tap my foot and strum my cheap wooden guitar that my father had purchased for me in the guitar shop above, I had great day dreams. In other words he bored me to death, yet he could have made a better effort at keeping my attention had he at least told me some funny stories, even if they were made up. Maybe then I would not have been day dreaming that I was on a beach splashing through the waves of salty sea water and collecting seashells and would have learned something. Maybe I would have become the next Johnny Rodriguez, who was a cousin of my fathers when I was a child, who actually had his own record albums then. Johnny Rodriguez came to visit one summer and that was it, that next week I was at the music store with my dad. God Bless his heart!

I really liked how the CD that came with Guitar for Dummies contains "Tuning" for your guitar right on Track 1. Track 1 that is perfect for someone like me who loses interest quickly. In Part II of Guitar for Dummies you will find "So Start: Playing the Basics, " three songs you can easily play as a beginner. My favorite is Kumbaya, and again I thank the good Lord that Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star is not included here or I would have stopped reading this book immediately, not kidding.

I have found that both books give you the basics in learning how to play guitar, although The Complete Idiot's Guide has a slower approach in teaching those basics. I found both books to be easy to read and understand and the diagrams clear. But If you are looking for a guide for your E-reader, I can tell you right now The Complete Idiot's Guide To Guitar is not available on Kindle or Nook, however the Guitar For Dummies 2nd Edition is. If an E-reader edition is not your purpose, and instead you are easily irritated by jokes or any non-serious style of learning when it comes to a book, and have lots of time on your hands then go with The Complete Idiot's Guide To Guitar, otherwise grab the Guitar For DUMMIES and have fun with it.
