    Just got mine(10 days ago) and I really think its a great learning tool, I can read and learn with or without my guitar, the lessons are clearly explained and it seems as though Joey is a great guitar/music teacher. The book covers everything from beginner/intermediate to advanced studies.

    I could see how his method would make a great guitar player.

    Thanks for the recommendation!!

    Purchased it today...thanks for the headsup. Hopefully this will work well in conjunction with Sheets of Sound allowing me to finally keep up with 65 year old father while jamming on the standards. :dude

    I just never figured out how to have two or more separate price categories for a single product with PayPal.

    So I use 1 price ($30.00 US) for surface shipping anywhere, worldwide.

    The only option for airmail shipping is to mail me a certified cheque or money order in US funds for $40.00 US.

    Not a very elegant setup but it's worked so far for me. Not too many complaints yet.

    I received a copy. It does not have tab. You have to be able to read music to be able to use the book.
    My reading is pretty poor. I will have to brush up before I'll be able to take advantage of the book.
    It has a weath of information in it.

    I got my copy. I had a flick through it. It should help me loads with my reading but currently I am going through SOS and I don't want to many things in my mind at once.

    I think that those two books work really well together....plus spending 50% of the time on Joe's book will help ward off the tendonitis that SOS can contribute to if you go overboard.

    would a beginner that is not with a teacher fair well with a book like this ??
    sounds complex......though in a good way.
    just don't want to go over my head.
