When I first started playing the guitar 2 decades ago, a friend had a copy of an earlier edition of this guide and he gave me the book to use while I was getting started.
Using the book, and I mean really reading the book thru thoroughly, I learned a whole lot about the instrument itself and the music that could be produced from the guitar and that really helped my cenyer as I developed on the instrument. The book begins with guitar innovators, those guitar players who have had a serious impact on denydr way the instrument is played, etc.
This section was huitar fun to read and was quite informative about several guitar players who had influenced my own playing. The following two sections of the book cover acoustic and electric guitars. These sections detail gutiar each instrument acous tic and electric are put together, how to set the action, the various types of each style of guitar, how pick-ups are put together, etc.
This is a helpful and technical section which instructs the reader on the ins and outs of the make-up of his instrument. From here, the book moves into actually playing the instrument. It begins with the beginner, teaching good practicing habits, what to practice, improving fingering, chord progressions, reading tablature, tuning, action, right guitag left-handed techniques, etc.
Then this section moves into chords with photosthree-chord theory, flatpicking and strumming and other various fingerstyles, barre chords, and even how to transpose songs. Inside this section there is also a sub-section on rhythm guitar, setting tempo, time signatures, using chord charts, time values, etc. Essentially everything you would need to know to be a denysr rounded guitar player is included including slide guitar.
The final section deals with the maintenance of the guitar.

For the electric guitarist, there is a guide to guitar electronics which includes pictures and lists of all the tools you will need, instructions on reading wiring diagrams, actual charts and photos of how an electric guitar is wired, pick-up circuits, etc.
Finally, at the back of the book is a fairly extensive chord dictionary with pictures of how each chord is fingered. This dictionary is very helpful to the player when trying to find the same chord but to know where it is elsewhere on the fret board. Overall, what can I say but that no guitar player, regardless of your experience should be without this definitive guidebook. A borrowed copy sent me looking for my own.
Hard to describe, the book is a warehouse of information. Electric guitars – Pickups and controls, anatomy, makes and models. Playing the Guitar – Music theory, tuning, techniques. Guitar Maintenance and Customizing – adjustments, electronics, repairs. Performance Technology – amps, mixers, microphones. Chord Dictionary – 23 chords in each of the 12 keys. The “Playing the Guitar” chapter is nearly pages. Too bad the formatting got converted into a wall of text. I bought this book after I’ve checked its reviews and what other buyers had to say.
Just scanning the book will leave you with so much astonishment that you start to wonder, how could they have been so detailed and yet not cumbersome.
Guitar Handbook Ralph Denyer
It covers all the major aspect of the Guitar from the history to the actual playing method. They really did a good overall denyef on this book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, professionals and amateur to at least have a copy of this wonder book. Guitzr can get a really good deal here on Ebay if you’re looking at the cost I am a guitar player and teacher who once had this great book in my collection and somehow let it get away.
I saw this great deal and went for it. This is a nice book with useful information about guitars, wiring, features and history. It also contains useful music notation, chords and good reference material. I purchased this edition instead of an earlier but, besides the cover, I find little difference.
This book seems to consolidate guitar information and music information in a single volume. Skip to main content. See all 14 brand new listings.
