Hello to all.
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 23, 2018
Okay, hate to tell you, but if you came to this article because of the title, I need to direct you to another page – the January 1, 2018 column, “One More Time” has (as of a few moments ago) all the right links to the four Idiot’s Guides that everyone seems to be missing the audio links for.
As always, I thank you for your patience in dealing with these matters!
UPDATE – AUGUST 6, 2017
Thank you everyone for writing. It seems like the folks at DK keep moving the audio files online! Try this URL for the “Idiot’s Guides: Playing Guitar“ book
When you get to this page, you should see a note at the bottom called “book extras.” Put your cursor over the “download the audio tracks” (it should appear with an underline) and click on that to start the download to your computer. I’ve not tried this URL yet, so please let me know if it doesn’t work.
Should it not work for whatever reason, give this link a try:
This is the “properties” URL when I click on the “download the audio files” I mentioned earlier. Hopefully one of these two will work. If not, just drop me another email.
I’m still trying to get the audio for “Idiot’s Guides: Guitar Theory,” and I will post it up here as soon as I do.
As always, I cannot thank you enough for your patience.
And my apologies for not posting this a lot sooner!
It’s been a very weird and busy year (more on that soon!) but I’ve been getting a lot of emails about not being able to find audio files online for my last four books.A
- The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Art of Songwriting (written with Casey Kelley)
- The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Playing the Ukulele
- Idiot’s Guides: Playing Guitar
- Idiot’s Guides: Guitar Theory
Unfortunately, the URLs for the audio files got changed when DK Publishing took over the “Idiot’s Guides” from Alpha Publishing. When DK changed their website (almost over two years ago now), not all the audio tracks made the switch. They are still available, just at a different URL than that listed in the book. Here are the ones you want:
Art of Songwriting
When you get to any of these pages, simply look for the “Book Extras” section, where you’ll see a link to download ZIP files to your computer of choice. Let me know if you have any difficulties downloading the files.
And also please feel free to email me anytime with any questions that you may have concerning the book. As with almost all books, there are a few typos and such in there, so if something doesn’t quite make sense, just drop me a note.
Thank you for picking up any of the books. I look forward to chatting with you all again very soon.
