My Opinion:
There is a ton of useful information in this book. I was amazed at how well laid out it is and how much you can learn. I do believe you need some existing music knowledge to fully comprehend all the tips and even just the general talk. I had already known how to read music, so I found it easy to learn where to find the notes on the guitar. The neck became a composition of music turned sideways, and I was able to learn quickly. I think people with no prior understanding of anything music, and not just singing along with the radio, will struggle a bit more. This book, along with the DVD, are so great for beginners. I plan to use this book for a long time yet, since I am so green, but so far it has taught me a lot.

 3.5/5

Recommend? Only to those that want to learn to play guitar.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
