4.0 out of 5 stars A reasonalbe springboard, 13 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Lead (Guitar Method) (Paperback)
i picked this book after some years away from the instrument.

the book not only teaches the begginer some techniques used for solo-ing (i.e bending, sliding) but also, simultaneously teaches you how to read music notation, if that interests you. the book is divided into sections whereby you will learn a set of techniques then you will be given a solo that incorporates the techniques. the solos themselves are not wonderful, but they do provide a few licks and solid examples of techniques in practice.

if you feel so inclined, try to read the music instead of the tablature and test yourself

this book will dust you off and leave you ready to go onto some sexier material.

i would heartily recommend this book to begginers and intermediates alike. Even the simple riffs (and they are ridiculously simple to begin with) are taught alongside music notation so there's a bit for everyone.

I dropped in learnin the notation, and i found that it not only improved my technique but also my ability to read tab. it's possible to rely less on the cd when you can read rhythem notation which is, with the help of this book, easy and enjoyable to do.

i wont give the book five stars becaquse of the general unsexiness of the material. the licks just arnt very sexy and they could leave the less commited student to jack in all together. i recommend that you have another book on the go with this one, say 101 blues licks or something. just to keep your ear interested.
