5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 13 Jan. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ive been playing guitar for about a year and half and i understand everything but scales...until i bought this book that was. this book is clearly layed out with a nice beginning section to ease you into scales, steadily offering you less support as you go through the book until you reach the end where youre alone with just the scale box and your guitar.
I have picked up scales really quickly in the five days ive owed this book and am already progressing to blues scales and major. Its an essential MUST HAVE for anyone attempting to learn scales. Worth more than the seling price in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good scale-learning material 11 Aug. 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is definately a handy little book for learning scales! It Starts with all the basic stuff of pentatonic scales and so on. then it takes all the way up to the more complicated scales like the phrygian dominant scale - and diminished, whole tone and so on.

In general Troy Stetina is a good teacher. In the book he talks about good methods of learning the scales(not just scales written down in tablature with no supporting words about how to use the scale paragrams best)and in general the book is quite easy to read and understand.

If you are up to some scale knowledge and practice this book is a great instrument of helping you on the way.

And as a nice bonus the book is at a quite low cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crikey, what a great little book! 3 Dec. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This "fit-in-a-guitar-bag" sized book is excellent with useful diagrams and very helpful text. In fact there's more text than we'd imagined but it's really good and adds to the tuition. A useful book too in that we can keep it in the guitar bag. Didn't cost the earth so why not get a copy. we'd recommend it. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing aid to progressions 16 Nov. 2012
By awollin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing aid to learning scales, even scales which you already thought you knew. It is easily laid out and a joy to follow, the box system used in the book is accurate gives you a basic understanding of how they are formed and used in real music. I would recommend to any guitarist at any level who is caught in that rut of self taught knowledge; theory is where the journey begins.

This book is a fantastic aid. After failing countless times to find a good resource for learning scales, this proved to be just what I was looking for. If you buy it, be sure to look online for backing tracks in different keys to experiment with, and after a few days of practice, you'll be on your way to some good soloing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ultimately confusing! 20 Mar. 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having only been playing guitar for a year and being completely self taught, I thought i would get a book to explain and help me learn scales. This book seems to me that it's aimed at players who know an awful lot more than i do. It hasn't got detailed explanations and the jargon used is not explained fully nor is what sequence to play the scales in, It could be that you can play the scale in any sequence but this is not explained. In essence i found this book to be very confusing and no help at all, luckily it was cheap and i've not wasted that much money.
