Up until a few years ago, finding guitar players who could sight read melodic lines was about as rare as sighting a whooping crane. Today, because of widespread study and the use and popularity of the guitar, melodic sight reading has become an essential part of guitar playing. It is now important for a working guitarist to be as proficient at sight reading as any brass or woodwind player. Rhythms in this book are extremely complex, compelling the player to focus on learning the guitar fretboard.
