    I have finally completed and mastered all 18 chapters of this book over a 2-month period. I consider myself an intermediate-advanced fingerstyle guitarist with ~ 20 years of playing under my belt. I felt this book provides a lot of great exercises and workouts which have improved my playing...

    . I thought the song selection wasn't great, although there were 2 songs that I have added to my repertoire. Overall, this is a good buy and I recommend it for improving your playing.
