    This book is for those who want to explore in a general overview the rhythmic guitar playing. I specially liked the Latin-Brazilian and the Funk sections.

    If you have no idea what kind of music you want to play, or if you want to play it all then this book will give you a good head start into playing alot of cool stuff in many different styles, but I reccomend you have a pretty good knowledge...

    of chords, and how they are made, but if not then you can still gain from this as it's all written in tab format.
