Has any one used the Alfreds Max Learn to play guitar complete book and DVD. It teaches you to play string by string and mostley notes. You learn notes on each string and when you get to the third string you learn very simple one finger or two finger chords. You don't really learn the basic open chords(c,d,a etc) and you learn measures,rest etc. Is this a good way to learn because all the other books and dvds go right into open chords,barres,power chords.Am i wasting my time on such simple stuff or is this good to know?
I think it would be easy to learn it yourself
