This is not your typical technique book with a bunch of non melodic, unusable ideas. They are all melodic, which can be applied for song writing, improv, and everyday day guitar use. It's a perfect book for building your chops and mastering the fingerboard! Great for all styles of music, from classical to metal, rock, latin, jazz, and country.

They are also spiral bound, which makes it stay open when laying flat or on a music stand! Why all music books aren't made this way is beyond me!
