Really nice
Victoria Kane, 07.08.2017
This book makes studying soooo much easier. It gives you a daily excersize to start with, to focus on, rather than sitting and feeling overwhelmed with all the things you want to study.

Very interesting exercises, they work, they keep you fit, they make your hands faster and stronger and gives you lots of resources from different techniques and styles. Then you can go deeper on your own, but it's a great start and stay focused.

The exercises are grouped in different styles, but they are techniques that you can use on any other style. For example, I play jazz, blues and surf music and I hate heavy metal, but the first exercises are grouped in this style. Still, you can use them in any other styles.

Visible progress!
Bob81, 11.02.2020
I've tried to follow all the exercises for the requested year (365 exercises, one per day).

Pros: after and also during the entire period you can really see progress in your playing such as dexterity and sensibility.

Cons: maybe too much "metal" licks if you don't love this genre... but all in all it doesn't matter if the final result is to improve your playing.

After a year of study my opinion is very positive.

Great for keeping playing standards up
16.05.2015
I've been playing for the best part of eight years, this book has helped me immensely in just making sure that I don't stick to one style of playing or develop bad habits. Wouldn't make a good book for beginners as some of the economy picking/sweep picking exercises are quite hard. Accompaniment CD is a bit rubbish but it doesn't matter as long as you can read tabs you can just practice with a metronome
