    This book is truly incredible! It gives the modern guitarist all the intervals, chords, scales and modes needed for jazz and jazz fusion. Within just 96 pages the author has created a masterpiece! The section on the modes of the melodic minor and harmonic minor are long overdue. Finally, someone...

    has presented a way for all guitarists to play all over the neck, in any key, with any mode. After the guitarist completes the section on the modes of the major scale, the melodic minor, and the harmonic minor, there's still more. The author presents the diminished and whole-tone scales, which is inspiring. Simply, a great book for every improvising guitar player!
