Comments about Hal Leonard Power Plucking - A Rocker's Guide to Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar - Book/CD:

I bought this to try and go a little beyond basic strumming in my accompanying. It is nice to see a book on fingerstyle that isn't reliant on classical pieces or going over the same arpeggios 2000 times, but the book doesn't go into a lot of depth with the material. You get one, sometimes two examples of each new idea.

So if you're looking for a giant book of excersises to memorize and add to your playing go elsewhere. Same for if you need a ground up approach to fingerstyle. But if you're looking for a quick and dirty look at some possiblities to add to your playing, this book is worth a look.
