If you want to be more than a guitarist but a overall great musician you need this!I will admit this book is tuff they show you the very basics of how to read music and such and such and then they just expect you to know it. The content goes by fast and you may find yourself reviewing a certain section or exercise a few times before feeling comfortbale moving to the next I do.Let me get this out the way too this books contains NO TABS everything in here is written in music notes. Don't worry if you can't read music this will teach you how.
This book starts out with some very basic sight reading information. However, I would strongly reccomend that you have some experience before starting this book due to a very steep learning curve. The book takes you through various exercises and teaches different rhythmic techniques and chord forms. This book gets very difficult very quickly and can take months to complete. It is for sure the most informative method book that exists and it is definitely going to improve your playing signifigantly.
