      This is a great exercise book for guitar players. It is basically broken down into a few sections.

      The first part of the book covers basic guitar fundamentals like how to read tablature and gives a few basic warm-up exercises for you to play.

      Part II we move into covering the major scale and minor scales. The exercises cover five patterns of the major/minor scale and each pattern has an exercise you can play that shows you how to

      use it in everyday playing. There is also a fretboard diagram above each scale so you can visualize it better. The next section shows you how to play each of the patterns in sequences.

      At the end of each chapter there are a couple of pieces you can play that use the scales you just learned.

      Part III moves into Major, Minor and Seventh style arpeggios again offering patterns for each arpeggio and exercises followed by a piece of music you ...

      • can play. The Arpeggio section is very good and would benefit everyone.

        Part IV covers chords and shows you several ways to play major, minor, seventh and the altered chords using the key of F as the example key. This is also very good and goes beyond the typical cowboy chords found in most books.

        Finally at the end the book closes out with some more drills and practice tips to help you improve. The book also comes

        with a CD and plays each example for you so you play along.

        Although the pieces of music given as examples are just Christmas songs and classical style pieces, it is well worth the money I spent. I would of liked to of seen some rock style riffs or something.

        I would recommend this book to any guitar player. The exercises, scales and example are all laid out in an easy to follow method. It is a great resource for guitar players.
