    A reviewer

    My experience with this book has been very positive. I have owned it for almost 8 years and I still work with it daily, both by myself, and with my students. Don't expect much in the way of theory, and don't buy it if you are looking for a collection of licks (although it does have some good licks in it), but if you want to improve your physical technique, gain speed, etc., this is the book.

    Amazing book! A definate must have!

    If you have been playing guitar for years or even if you're just starting out, this book is a definate must have. The exercises in it will blow your mind. You'll be able to have much more control over your hand and will also gain speed that you never thought you had. This book will also enable you to see how to really have a concept for playing the guitar, specially for those who are interested in solo guitar. The mastery of the author is incredible. His renderings of the classical pieces are amazing on the guitar, and this book will also help you be the guitar player that you want to be. It gives you a whole new array of ways of looking at the guitar and how to practice the guitar. It is a great book to have. Take it from me, I've been playing for almost six years now and I just love that book, it's just amazing. It will help you improve a great deal.
