    With a good teacher this is a great book! Learn pentatonic, modal, and exotic box patterns, and solo over given chord progressions. Knowledge of key signatures and note reading required.

    a worthwhile book in the long run;especially for the exotic scales in the back as I said for beg,inter,or advanced guitarist this book is truly worthwhile

    skips the endless waste of ink and dead trees that comprise the bulk of most books on scales/modes, with repetitive scalar patterns repeated ad nauseum (you only need to learn in one position!)...introduces cool synthetic scales and exotic modes that will greatly aid in breaking up the monotony...

    of ionian/aeolian (major/minor) scales that 99% of guitar players use.
