On the guitar fretboard on p184 the 7th fret of the B string is labelled F and should be F#.

All this practicing has come in useful if I can recognise that!

Right column, lines 6 and 7 down from top:

If the pick is strumming flat (parallel) against the strings it often get gets hooked into the strings and make makes your rhythm playing kinda lumpy.


This is taking a bit longer than I expected.  I'll start again from page 30 in the not too distant future.  BTW, I think the book's great.  It just seems a pity that for such a good and nicely produced book that the publisher couldn't have thrown in a few hours worth of copy editing and proof reading.

That’s all I’ve found on my first “once over” of the book.  Most of the points are very minor but I thought it would be best to mention every single thing that “jumped out” at me.  Please forgive me if you think I’ve overdone the nit-picking… but I just can’t help being a detail freak.

PS
It’s a brilliant book and I’m now going back to the beginning to start learning properly.

Gudday,

I posted this earlier but it doesn't seem to have appeared so here it is again.

P. 141 the diagram for G has fingers 1 and 2 back to front

P.177 same problem with G (first G on second line)

P.178 CSus4   the A string is X'd out but has the 3rd finger down

P.179 D7 Sus4 fingers 1 and 2 back to front

The biggest mistakes seem to be on the Full Neck diagram on P. 184 which I see others have spotted. Unfotunately I didn't and tried learning it as it is...soon realised something was wrong but annoying all the same and would be good if you could come up with a downloadable PDF of a corrected page one could print out and just stick in over the present one as mine is a mess of scratching out and insertions...very confusing!

Otherwise very happy with the course although I did my left wrist and thumb in practicing too much so am now taking a break thus have time to nitpick the book!

Wow Cal - THANK YOU!

I should have seen this earlier! I've sent it to my publisher to look into, that's a lot of corrections!

On page 84 for the chord changes you have "E7 to A (mini bare)". E7 is not covered until Page 95 in the next lesson.

On p. 139, the Stage 7 practice chart, under chord practice, Dsus4 is listed twice and Dsus2 is omitted.

Beginner's Coursebook vs. Website

I'm sure this has been fixed already but just to let you know, on p. 142 (Stage8) the image of the 'Folk' G is not the same as that on the website (in fact it is just the usual G shape). The description is fine as Justin talks about just using two fingers and muting the fifth string but the picture doesn't show this. On the website it does show the two-finger G chord.

Hi Justin and Teammates!
Is it correct that on page 88 CQR, Track 32,  one of the Chords is D7 which is not covered yet until here?
Thank you and regards from Germany, Atari1985

Some people must have bought the book just to correct them.
Fretboard location 7  doesnt have any marking but is a F#
This is according to my own fretboard chart.
Check before you comment.

Have a look at the on-line version here;

https://www.justinguitar.com/en/BC-000-BeginnersCourse.php

BC117 is the list of songs for stage one - so not a lesson as such.
BC 127 is the same for stage two.

There is no BC120 in the same way that there isn't a BC110. The numbering is the answer to this. The second digit refers to the stage number and the third digit refers to the lesson.
