  • February 17, 2016 Excellent book

    I've been playing the guitar most of my life, but not jazz guitar. It's something I've always wanted to learn, and over the years I have bought many books - which I found either too difficult or boring. I like this book because right from the beginning it...

    made me think about the guitar differently. It made me see how chords are laid out on the fingerboard and how they relate. So far, my progress has been relatively slow, but I'm OK with that. I'm truly enjoying going at a slower pace and absorbing the lessons as I come to them.

    I have purchased many jazz guitar books and this is one of the most comprehensive it really covers nearly everything from beginner to advanced, especially when it comes to The advanced section. The information on everything from arpeggios to scales and the harmony theory and melodic minor scales et cetera...

    is excellent. The information presented is much better than the performance examples on the CD but if you take the information and apply it to songs from a fake book et cetera you really have everything you need.
