This is the second book in the series that I've read and worked my way through.
The authors teach you to strum and to play individual notes as well as chords. It really does take you from the basics to a level of competence if you follow the exercises. I also liked that the audio is easily accessible on the website so you can play the audio tracks to get a feel of what each exercise should sound like and then play along with the track. That's particularly helpful to get a feel for the timings of each piece - playing along with an expert keeps you from speeding up or slowing down the song as you practise and that's useful.
My only issue with the book is that it said that there are video examples of the strumming patterns on the website but there's no link and when I went to the website I couldn't find these lessons. As I'm having a bit of trouble with some of the harder strum patterns I would have liked to see the video to see how it's done.
I also really liked the ebook version of the book. A lot of music books that are also available in print are done in a lazy manner as 'print replicas' and that makes them more like a PDF than an ebook and a pain to use on a tablet. This book has been done as a beautiful native ebook from scratch and the scrolling is effortless and the words and music flow across to the next page without awkward breaks.
