Reviews - What do our customers think?
very comprehensive  Apr 14, 2008
I've been playing guitar now for 15 years. I have taken college courses on guitar playing and chord theory and I've tried to follow other books that would enlighten me in relation to the guitar fretboard. No other book is quite as thorough as this one in opening up the fretboard's mysteries. It provides exercise after exercise and drills ideas into you by making you practice them a certain way. The first few pages provide exercises that are difficult but learnable. This book is not for a novice, or someone picking up the guitar for the first time. You need to know the basics of note reading in the first position and some background in scale and chord theory. You need to make sure that you learn each exercise before moving on to the next one. If you follow each exercise and progress through the entire book, there is no reason not to believe that you will become a very accomplished guitarist and musician. However, I believe that it could take a beginner or intermediate guitarist a few years to learn (really learn) each and every exercise presented by Vincent Bredice.

If you are a novice guitarist I would recommend: The Guitar Handbook (by Ralph Denyer) and/or any version of: The Complete Guitarist (by Richard Chapman). Please keep in mind these books are for the novice or beginner. Bredice's book is for the intermediate guitarist or the advanced guitarist.

This book will open up the fretboard to you in a new way, a way that does not cut corners but makes sure you understand what you are doing and why you are doing it from a musical standpoint. If you are looking to cut corners (tab reader) look up the Guitar Grimoire series. If you are dedicated (as any true guitarist should be) you will love this book and what it has to offer you.
Mel Bay's: Complete Book of Guitar Improvisation  Nov 14, 2003
A great book only if you are serious about learning guitar and music. If you just want to play a few chords, this is not the book for you. I bought it as a study aid to use in my guitar lessons. My teacher uses it as the bible for serious students. There is no fluff in this book, it is all scales, excercises, licks, theory, reading music, understanding music.

It will be a grind to go through this book. I am only on page 30 something of 200+ pages but I know if I learn the material (and it will take years to really learn it) I will be a player. I will probably buy a second copy because this thing will be rags before I get through it.

Excellent  Feb 8, 2003
After studying with Mr. Bredice for a few years, I can say hands down this is one of the best methods out there for mastering the fretboard. In his words, "If you can do all the exerscises in this book you are literally a virtuoso."
Amazing!  Jun 11, 2001
As a guitarist I have sought out various books to help me in my endevour to learn the guitar. This book is astounding!

I have always wanted to just pick up a guitar and play, or play lead while another person is playing rhythem.

I highly recommend this book for anybody seeking to learn scales, chords, and just about anything else!

I love it!

I'm sure you will too!
