Guitar Man, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Will Hodgkinson dreamt of being a guitar legend but never got round to it.

Now in his thirties and married with children, he still nurtures hopes of emulating his heroes.

So he decides to learn the guitar from scratch, start a band and play a gig before it's too late.

On his journey of discovery, he picks up tips along the way from Johnny Marr and the Byrds' Roger McGuinn, and attempts to play Davey Graham's 'Anji'.

Will his debut gig end in bum notes, 'musical differences' and disaster?

An annoying book, in the way of so much nowadays, a butterfly, skipping from scene to scene without really settling on anything for long enough to attract any interest. I gave up after four or five chapters.

Read it in one go. Then dusted off my guitar and tried learning some new songs.
