My Dad is nearing retirement and has decided he wants a guitar for Christmas. He played a little when he was (much!) younger but is essentially a total beginner.
Anyone got any recommendations for a "Learn to Play Guitar" type book?
I have been out of the guitar-based loop for a long, long time so have no idea what's current and as I live in France I can't really get into a shop and have a thumb through a few to see what's good.
He just wants to strum along to the Stones* / Beatles etc, not take up jazz or classical or anything daft like that!
*note to anyone with the same idea - accurately reproducing what Keith Richards is playing is **** hard. The same does not hold for Lennon/Harrison!
