Gareth Evans

Author Gareth Evansabout this book: Guitar for Kids features explanations of basic playing technique, reading and playing music from guitar tablature, chords and plenty more. For ages 8 and up. Photo examples and purpose made diagrams are included with explanations to make them clear. There are musical pieces in various styles to play, such as Pop, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country and more. The musical pieces include downloadable mp3 audio with example tracks and backing tracks.

Featured in side are cartoons of the "Jumbalees" cartoon characters. The cover image is of Leo the blue Lion (on the left) and Elvis (to the right). Elvis is an Elephant with bird's legs. Pippa (on the back cover) is a Hippo with Tiger stripes. Perhaps you can see why they are called the Jumbalees? a jumble of different things! There are also videos of the musical pieces with a short animation of one of the Jumbalees (Leo) counting in.

"Gareth has written a really well thought out first book for teaching young children how to play. The fact that he teaches tablature and takes the time to find a logical way to add rhythm makes this method a step above other similar books. I've taught guitar for 30+ years and it has always been a challenge to find a book that doesn'ttalk down to the students. This one is definitely the one I'll beusing." -- Bob Lucas - Bob Lucas Guitar Studios (Missouri US)
