    I think what i wrote on the headline is tehe main difference betwen this serie and many others I´ve tried before. It´s written in a clear way and the topics covered are sufficient for an Intermeditte level book. Of course, if you are loocking for just a bunch...

    of licks you should lock in other books, this is for people who wants to follow an school-like program. I´ve also brought Complete Blues mehotd and complete keyboard method and I got the same opinion about them, thats why you might see the same review about them.

  • September 06, 2007 Intermediate Rock Guitar Review.

    I recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn Rock guitar in general. The CD that comes with the book lets you hear the exerices in the book, and the examples are parts of real hit songs from rock n roll. All of the Complete Rock Guitar books (National Guitar...

    Workshop) are great to learn with.
