5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Collection, 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is trully an amazing collection.The quality of the recordings is also very good considering some go back nealy a whole century.
Great remastering/remixing without having to alter anything,the tunes sound as they should and trust me i grew up with this music surrounding me,i know what it should sound like.
If you like real roots world music than this is trully the thing.
I was initially very sceptical about purchasing it,after reading the press promo,as i thought i had all the recordings of that era,some original and on vinyl some on cd issued by the ministry of culture itself,very hard to find these days...well THIS collection is an absolute gem and there is no exageration on the promo press info,as a matter of fact it should have praised it more.
I dont know of any other remasterd recording of these themes and dances from that era,that captures the sound of the instruments in such a natural fashion.
The irony is that most of the musicians in these dances and songs are and always have been underated,as this stuff is essentially festival music,yet the musicianship and virtuosity in some is superb.
Simply excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars really great seller and service, 14 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
really great seller and service,was dispatched very fast.
as for the book itself...well i been playing for three decades and i really wish this book was published,or i knew of its existence 30 years ago.
its absolutely fantastic and i highly recommend it to players of any level.a lot of the exercises,especially the ones in the beginning of the book are based on E.Pujol's method for the guitar,which was published in the 18th century but with a more modern approach regarding hand positioning.
Simply faboulous book,without a doubt it will make you a better p

4.0 out of 5 stars nice set of strings, 19 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
these strings were purchased for an entry level instrument and so far have lived up to the expectation and beyond.the quality is the usual d'addario just like their guitar strings,i expect them to last for a long time.generally speaking when it comes to MOR strings d'addario are a major contestant and personally i use them on all budget instruments.they might not be the best for tone and certainly wont add personality to the sound,on an acoustic instrument,but you get a lot of string for your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i was never fan of tintin and this movie didnt do it either.but kids liked it i think.having said that they only watched it once and from my experience if kids like a movie it doesnt move from the tv cabinet,this one is lost somewhere on a shelve.

4.0 out of 5 stars good one, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
it has a lot of good licks in there thats for sure.i would not necessarily agree with the title as some riffs that i consider blues landmarks are not in this book.
however there is a lot of cool ones in there and gets better the further you get.
most licks are quite easy to play and about half of them,or at least their motifs,are instantly recognizable.
its not a beginners book though and if you have not been playing for 4-5 years at least start with something easier like beginners blues guitar or something.
or to put it differently if your string bending,vibrato and slide techniques arent up to scratch you wont benefit much from this book and it wont help you to improve them either.


The Acoustic Guitar Bible
The Acoustic Guitar Bible
by Eric Roche
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this book as i heard good comments about it.ironically i met the author at a Vinnie Moore gig some fifteen years ago and we had a long conversation,and possibly far too much to drink or so i did,he was a great guy to chat to.i was not familiar with his work as a musician nor as an author and i dont even think he had anything published at the time.anyhow,i been an electric player for 3 decades and for what i do i am really good.as a matter of fact i will keep up with any accomplished lead player.but obviously as an acoustic player,it was a side i always overlooked.until i bought this book.this is a study for life...if like me you been playing lead and thought acoustic guitar is easy think again.try to get by with some of the left hand exercises in this book and you ll discover so many flaws to your technique,everything your right hand needs to master is there too.its no accident that its forwarded by Tommy Emmanuel.but this book goes even beyond all that,its like no other method i've come across.it goes into great depth in all popular styles and more.a true acoustic guitar bible.but dont expect an easy ride with this one.
just one tip,dont buy it from the retailer i did,one disc is missing and they completely ignored my emails.

the story is classic and Ladybird books are as always unique in terms of illustration.this is testimonial of an era that without these books would be as good as lost.
