    Having been a private teacher for 30 years, I use this book with some of my students with at least three years of experience. Mintzer makes use of interesting melodies which incorporate the tensions in the chords, showing students what a #5 is. It's an interesting and fun book...

    , and my students really enjoy it. All of his books are great. Yes, I think Mintzer is a genius!

    Great book. Inventive melodies that use limited number of notes at first, then gradually get a little more complex. I donn't know if Bob Mintzer is a genius, but he sure is close
