The HAL LEONARD ACOUSTIC GUITAR METHOD by Chad Johnson is a great instructional resource because the author covers technique specifically for acoustic guitar and it gives many examples of the techniques in practice through real acoustic guitar songs.
With this method you will learn chords and strumming, fingerpicking, open tunings, and many different acoustic guitar styles. What I really like about this book is the acoustic rock feel of some of the lessons. The included CD sounds great and will help with practicing the full-length tunes in the book, as well as the shorter exercises throughout.
I wish I would have had the HAL LEONARD ACOUSTIC GUITAR METHOD when I was learning how to play guitar. It's a great method for learning acoustic guitar technique.
