5.0 out of 5 stars excellent!, 12 Nov 2006
This review is from: Fast Forward - Rock Guitar Improvisation: Riffs, Chords and Tricks You Can Learn Today! [With CD] (Fast Forward (Music Sales)) (Paperback)
This book is enlightening, educational and has great artistic merit. I am a classical guitarist and once had a strong prejudice about the electric guitar, yet was still curious as to how it was played. I've seen many books that were pretty disappointing, but this is very different. The techniques and theory are well explained and the music itself is so good, you just have to get on and learn them. Some are so melodic and expressive, I get goose bumps!! The author has shattered my prejudice that electric guitar is for morons with no musical talent. Unfortunately, young people learning the instrument may not have the patience to really do it properly and musically as this book demands. In my experience, they just want to thrash chords and play 'smoke on the water' over and over again. This book really shows these thrashers that you must understand rhythm and the theory to get any real music out of the electric guitar.

My only gripe is the photos. They serve no purpose in such an educating book and just make electric guitarists look like posers and nerds, as well as wasting space that could have been filled with more of the author's excellent compositions.

This book has all the rock chords you'll need. It has chords, riffs and a lot more. This book is great for beginners just starting to play guitar.
