Ive been playing for over a year (not a long time in guitar years), but Ive learned a lot very quickly (e.g. megadeth soloing, ascending tapping runs, steve vaiand theory) And I have a hell of a lot of learning material (tab books, lick library dvds, guitar instructionals, chopbuilder, Music theory books etc) This book is set out so that no matter what, every day you play something new. Monday - Alt picking, tues - string skipping, wed - String bending, thurs - arppegios, fri - sweep picking, sat legato and sun - rhythm. It starts off from beginner progressing to very advanced at week 52. Even if you are an intermediate/advanced player and feel like skipping a few weeks and heading to e.g. week 18, youll miss a lot since it's always good to go back to basics and find weak points in your playing. Out of all the materials available, this one already ranks as one of the must haves if you are a dedicated player. Frank Gambale - chop builder on dvd, this book, Fretboard mastery by Troy Stetina, Metal lead and rhythm books by Troy Stetina, Mike clasaick's books (if you can ever find them) and the RGT books for learning through the grades set out by Registry of Guitar Tutors. Ive only had this book for a day but even still.... Very impressed. The licks are also very relevant and not just boring chromatic runs. From Week 1, you'll learn a few licks you can incorporate into your playing or use as bases. You'll enjoy playing these. Two cds come with it. 1 for the lick demos and the second disc has drum backing at various tempos and different styles. The licks each have a good explanation, tips and a particular style from funk, metal, blues, rock, country etc. It's set out very well. BUY BUY BUY!
