    The vast majority of guitarists learn scales and end up blasting around the fretboard, so this book is extremely important for advancing the goal of melodic improvisation. I have found that the missing piece of the puzzle, to get guitarists to really progress is to give them examples of melodic...

    lines and to get them to visualize the chord/arpeggio shape for a chord while learning melodic lines. Just knowing the appropriate scale and chord tones does not usually lead to melodic lines, although they will usually be better than playing scales alone. Students also need examples of lines to use while visualizing the arpeggio shape so they can see how the line works around the arpeggio. These are often moveable to other keys/chords increasing the use of the lines.
