    I would agree with this. I have both books and would say that book 1 is good for beginners and book 2 builds upon what you learned. As JJFN mentioned, these books are rather difficult to find.

    I currently own a KS-1 and had a couple vintage Martins in the past. I would agree completely with Ukaster's comparison of the two. The Martins definitely have a more complex, rich sound. Amazing...

    I put these strings on a couple days ago and wasn't sure at first, but they are really growing on me. For the most part, the "squeak" has gone away. It was so bad at first that I almost took them...

    I use traditional DGBE baritone tuning. Some people like using the first 4 strings (DGBE on a classical guitar), but since the scale length is ~5" shorter than a classical guitar I found them too...
