    Well worth the money

    I got my first guitar in 1965 and took 6 months of lessons. I've been playing off and on since then, self taught and with the help of friends. This book filled in a lot of holes in my knowledge of guitar. It's well laid out with lots of examples and exercises. It's helped me learn some music theory, blues scales and some great techniques. The only thing you have to add is practice practice practice......
