5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful, 12 Jan 2010
This review is from: IZNAOLA: ""KITHAROLOGUS"" The Path To Virtuosity (Spiral-bound)
An extremely useful help, but not sufficient in itself. These exercises are all very useful as an aid in daily study of the guitar, and definitely help to improve technique. However, one needs to vary the exercises oneself to really derive all possible benefit from them.

Some exercises are insufficient to develop the technique they claim to develop. A great example of this is the tremolo. Only two exercises on tremolo are included, which I find is not enough to learn a truly great tremolo. Rasgueado technique is also not well covered. Not enough build-up exercises for either are included. Topics that are well covered though are the left-hand shifts and extensions, and slurs.

Well worth possessing, but if you are a serious student make sure you have other sources of exercises as well. If you are not a serious student, and do not intend on becoming one, you will probably derive very little benefit from this, and I would not recommend it. It consists entirely of difficult exercises, none of which are musically interesting in any way whatsoever. Hardly any explanations are included, so you need a pretty thorough knowledge of the instrument already to get started.
