Hundreds of Reviews for each Book include:
  • As a seasoned performer and teacher we all get a bit rusty and maybe lose focus when it comes to learning things and/or explaining things to students. Joseph has given me in this book a breath of fresh air and re- ignited my passion for learning more complex manoeuvres. He has also made me realize that I have always been on the right track with my thinking, but sometimes I derail and can't get back on. This book gets you up and going straight away and helps you target your learning and stay focussed. Like all good books they take a lot of work but the rewards are more than worth it! Well done Joseph.
  • Just the first few pages are worth the price of the book. There, Joseph explains how important it is to see chord shapes or "boxes" not for just what they are but for what they CAN be i.e. possible extensions for soloing.
  • Required for any guitarist. Explained perfectly for all guitarists!! Would recommend any of his books m/ buy and learn now!
