    I have bought both Gitar Theory and Playing Guitar but have been frustrated in trying to access the audio files, the reason I bought the books in the first place. Your Dec 29th note doesn’t clarify things because when one clicks on Book extras, it does nothing. Below that bold-faced heading you can sometimes catch a ghost-like text (only half of the letters showing) which disappear when the cursor approaches. Help!

    Hi Frank

    When I look at the page (my browser is Internet Explorer), there is a line directly under “Book Extras” which reads “Download the audio tracks” which gets an underline when I put the cursor on it. Clicking on that should create a zip file for you on your computer. Please let me know if this works for you.

    Thank you for buying both books. Now let’s get you set with the audio!

    Peace

    I am having the same difficulties and frustrations when attempting to access the audio files. There is no line under “book extras”, and no apparent way to download the audio tracks.

    What browser are you using? I understand that it’s different depending on which one you use. I can work it in either Internet Explorer or Firefox. You may want to try one of those. Let me know if you’re still having problems with it.

    Peace

    Downloaded the tracks and went to play them and there is nothing there. No recording get for each lesson. Really disappointed because this book has a lot of great things in it. Just wish I had an audio file to help me along.and I’ve tried all the different browsers you’ve suggested in your previous comments.

    Went to web page for “Playing Guitar” above and it reports that the page doesn’t exist, any idea where the audio files can be found?

    Hi David

    I am having exactly the same problem. When I click on the link for Guitar Theory, I get a message that says:

    404: DOES NOT COMPUTE!
    Sorry, the page you’re trying to reach is temporarily unavailable or the page may no longer exist.

    I have also bought the book and I cannot use the links; it is quite frustrating.

    What can you do? Those DK lawyers have to respect former customers. This is no far-west.

    Hi Mr David Hodge,

    I’m having the same problem as well. I cant seem to download the audio files for your book, Idiot’s Guide to Guitar Theory. Your book is really useful so it would be even awesome
    if i can get the audio files. When i click yr link, it shows error 404,a DK webpage. I stay in Asia so I dnt no is it because of the global directory thing. Any ways i can download your audio files?

    Look forward to your reply very soon!
    Many thanks!

    Cheers!

    Hello,

    I just tried to access the “Playing Guitar” content at the link you provided above, and got a “Sorry, the page you’re trying to reach is temporarily unavailable or the page may no longer exist” message.

    My email is gabrieladler@gmail.com.

    Would be grateful if you could email me the files or point me to another URL. Your book is excellent!

    Thanks,

    Gabriel

    Hi David

    I bought your Guitar Theory book but the link you provide here did not work. I finally found it here: https://www.dk.com/us/9781615646364-guitar-theory/?Format=eBook
    Maybe you want to have a look at this and update your page.

    Thank you
    Alfredo

    Just purchased Idiot’s Guides Playing Guitar. Tried to access audio content files via Firefox and am unable to get to online audio tracks. Error message says site is unavailable. I will be returning the book to B & N as it’s not complete without the audio tracks.

    Hello David, I followed your instructions, using firefox, and it worked perfectly I now have the files downloaded to my PC. I am not sure that this is the correct forum to ask a question BUT I will anyway in the arpeggios section, page 117 in the book, the tabs for the D chord are different, which is why I wanted the music to check.Apart from extra notes they sound the same to me

    David, ALL the links you gave above are dead ends. All the links from dk either present as “Sorry, the page you’re trying to reach is temporarily unavailable or the page may no longer exist.” or the links download a .zip file with no file inside.
    Could you please fix this. I have been unable to find the audio files from “IG:Guitar Theory amongst others at ANY links online.

    The link to the audio files for Idiot’s Guides to playing guitar is not working. It says the page is not there. Please send me the audio files soon or I will have to return your book. Thanks

    So the first two links (Songwriting & Ukulele) take you to the right website, but the .zip files do not contain any files when you try to download them. The second two sites (Playing Guitar, Guitar Theory) load to a 404 page.

    Hello David,

    I recently received “Idiot’s Guides: Playing Guitar” as a gift from my friends and am having trouble accessing the audio files. When I click on the link that you provided above (http://www.dk.com/us/9781615645701-idiots-guides-playing-guitar/) I get the following message on the webpage: “Sorry, the page you’re trying to reach is temporarily unavailable or the page may no longer exist.”. Is there any way I can get access to these audio files? Many thanks in advance for your time and help.

    Best,
    Effie
