  • September 06, 2007 Long overdue

    Likely the most useful book I have purchased for this area of music. I'm very happy with this selection! There are areas which are very basic, but others which can challenge any nimble fingered person. The CD is super excellent!

    Tucson, Az
    Difficulty Level:
  • August 29, 2007 Excellent overview of Jazz Licks

    This is an excellent book if you want to incorporate some great jazz licks into your own personal style of guitar playing. It is useful, not only for jazz, but can be adapted to country western and rock styles. The CD accompanying the book is excellent and plays each lick...

    twice, once a normal tempo and one a a much slower tempo to facilitate learning the lick. Highly recommended.
