  • Great book

    As reviewed by Fluffy on 1/16/2011

    Okay, so I just purchased this today, so it maaaay be a little too early to tell how amazing this book may be, but while taking the train home from Guitar Center I was reading it and a guy asked me about the book and took a picture and told me that he's a classical musician and that he's "never seen theory explained so easily." Upon coming home and taking a deeper look at it and using it with the Guitar Grimoire Scales and Chords books, he's right. This book is very useful in conjunction with the other two, and I feel MUCH more confident in my knowledge on theory and I'm starting to work on my own little progressions. I'm also being turned onto jazz as a result of wanting to learn how to improvise more, and this book can be thanked for that inspiration. There's even a little section on how to read sheet music, which was something I wasn't looking forward to doing anytime soon, lol. Either way, I can already tell that the $30 I spent on this was completely worth it, and hope my skill will keep on improving as a result of the Guitar Grimoire

  • Grimore for Students

    As reviewed by AznJazz on 5/31/2007

    I never really liked this, due to the fact is it hard to understand their explanation on chords and progression. It's scale chart is really good, but the price brings it down and not really interested me because anyone get these scales for free in the net and is better explained. A waste of money if a beginner, and as well if an advance player. It doesn't even teach the most basic of music and that is reading it, it just goes of in the scales and chord structure, which I doubt that any beginners would understand it. Grimore is at most is a reference of scales that could be obtained in any other guitar instructional book. If you got cash to burn then buy it, but I don't advice it. I would invest in college music books than this thick book.

    Carl Fischer has done it again with another great product. Chord structure and progressions are well defined and easy to follow. The explanation of the chord formulas are extremely helpful. I own just about the entire Grimoire series. This is a must have for your music reference or beginning learning tool. You'll have this book and keep it with you. Awsome product.
