Comments about Musicians Institute Ultimate Guitar Technique Book with CD:
I liked very much how it gave you a TON of exercises to do.
I didn't like how they weren't always the coolest sounding riffs, sometimes they were kind of boring and redundant.
They WILL however, really improve your playing ability, so put up with the few boring ones because it'll pay off.
Overall great book for the money, I've had the book for over a year and i still pick it up and learn new things from it. There are almost TOO many lessons in it.
This book is packed with tons of practice riffs and lessons from alternate picking to fret tapping to whammy bar techniques.
It covers everything you could possibly use as a lead guitar player, and everything you'd need as a rhythm guitar player as well.
Things like different strumming patterns, arpeggiating, and a bunch of power chord exercises. It also covers the very basics like how to hold the guitar, pick, and how pressure to apply to the strings
The CD is pretty good to if you like hearing what the lesson is supposed to sound like, each track is played to a metronome.
It's a paper backed book.
Hours and hours worth of lessons. I promise you won't be able to learn everything from this book within 2 months. I've had it for over a year and I am still finding new things to try.
