Ive just started learning the guitar, and this site is really helpful :) I just wanted to know, can the above e-book be downloaded?

Dr. Arindam Sarkarsaid...

Thankyou Saurya! The ebook was available in pdf format before. Due to continuous revisions and elaborations they became outdated. So, I have removed the PDFs. You can now download and print these pages. This allows for corrections and updates on old posts. So, when you come back to read it again, you read the correction. This works well with the 'referential' nature of the whole blog. That's not possible with PDFs that you may download and keep reading. I can't update the pdf you have.

So I realized that its better to have easily editable pages than difficult to edit PDFs. As I said, you can still print and read for free. The post index is above.


IndianGuitarChords Tip:

Tune your guitar before you start playing.^Top^
