This review is from: The Acoustic Guitar Bible (Paperback)

Starting in the mid-’90s, I regularly bought the English magazine ‘Guitar Techniques’ whenever I could lay my hands on it here in Germany, simply for Eric’s great acoustic section and beautiful playing on the CD that accompanied the magazine. The few short remarks that introduced each piece conveyed a great warmth and quiet humour; Eric was, even at a distance, a great teacher.
I was delighted to find this book – as another reviewer says, Eric’s originality and the completeness of his mastery of fundamentals are reflected in its structure and writing.
I had bought several other guitar books before this one, but for acoustic guitar, along with Jamey Aborsold’s, this is the one I reread most often.

THE BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR TUTOR EVER WRITTEN, June 4, 2006

This review is from: The Acoustic Guitar Bible (Paperback)

Eric (R.I.P.) was a great musician and a great teacher (please see his web-site) and unlike most other tutors, this has been very carefully thought out and worked up from scratch. Any guitarist would benefit from owning this I think, regardless of the stage they are at. It is outstanding and comprehensive and comes with two CDs.

I have owned this book for a little over a year now, and still go back to it all the time. Very well written, very informative. Still working on learning some of his transcriptions.
