Ah, The Ultimate Guitar Book. In many ways, this is where it began. I was still working for Making Music magazine when Nigel Osborne and I were commissioned by Dorling Kindersley to produce a stunning guitar book. I don’t think those were their exact words, but it was along those lines. I think we exceeded the brief. Not that I was ever happy with the Ultimate title, but that was the DK series into which this book fitted, so we had no choice. Few things are ever ultimate. But it did create some waves
