The How and the Tao of Folk Guitar
Volume One: Getting Started
by Patrick Costello
This is the free online Creative Commons licensed edition of "The How and the Tao of Folk Guitar
Volume One: Getting Started".

"The How and the Tao of Folk Guitar" is a genuine, printed on paper and sold in stores around the
world "book". You can buy a copy at the Pik-Ware Publishing web site or fromAm azo n. It is also available
from your local bookstore or music store. You can even get a copy of this book as a CD ROM "Deluxe

Edition" packaged with a video workshop.

The only difference between this document and the book sold in stores is that this one is free. You can read it, send it to a friend, display a copy on your web site and, most of all, use it to learn how to play the guitar without spending a dime. You can even print it out if you wish. However, you will most likely spend more on paper and ink printing it yourself than you would by just buying a copy of the book.

The next volumes in the "The How and the Tao of Folk Guitar" series, "Volume Two: Getting Good"
and "Volume Three: Be Cool" will be available sometime in 2005.
Bucks County Folk Music Shop supplies us with top quality entry-level guitars for our workshops. We
confidently send our friends there for any guitar or banjo related needs.
There is more I'd like to say. When it comes to the guitar I could literally talk all day, but it's probably best
to let the book do the talking right now.
Let's tune this puppy up and get picking.
