    John Thomas is a genious! I´ve had the pleasure of studying for him in person and he really takes guitarplaying to a whole different level. As a piano player would, a guitarist should beable to comp useing the proper voiceings and likewise ading melodies at the same time. Due...

    to the complexity of the instrument this has been forgotten somewhere along the road by the players that choose the easy way out. If you REALLY want to learn how to play guitar I suggest you not only buy this book but also take your time to learn it!
