I picked up a copy of this famous UK guitar instructional book a few weeks ago. Just knowing that Harrison, Lennon and McCartney as well as many other UK greats studied from this book made me want to get a copy.

We're very lucky that today we have thousands of books and internet websites to assist us but back in Britain in 1957 there was only Bert Weedon and his `Play In A Day' book.

I've often thought about grabbing a copy just to check it out. What do you think of it?

It reminds me a lot of the first Mel Bay book I studied from. It's pretty bland but certainly covers all of the essentials. Not something I would use for a student today; there are certainly better ones to use in 2017. But I wanted a copy for historical and nostalgia purposes. Like I said, knowing that so many of my guitar heroes used this book made me want to get a copy.
