I’ve read Zen Guitar by Phil Sudo at least seven times. Every time I need to be inspired or feel that I’m stuck in the box, I look for the book underneath my bed. I’ve owned two copies over the last eight years as my music took me across the country. The book encourages the reader to grab the guitar as he or she did when they first picked it up. To hear each note as they did in the beginning, when it resonated with endless possibilities.
I’ve taught guitar on my off time over the last nine years. I’ve recommended this book with every student and have yet to hear about someone who hasn’t finished it within a week. Phil Sudo provides a great tool to gain confidence in your playing and take pride in your own musical voice, regardless of what instrument you play.
