“This Book is the Best Guitar Book I bought Out of all my Guitar Books and I’ve been playing Guitar since 1985. The Book Describes everything you need to know on speed picking, like holding the pick certain ways that I didn’t know before. I’m only on the first Chapter .. The Techniques it shows you are things I never knew before.”

“It’s obvious that this was written with the utmost care. I can’t imagine that one could ever find a more detailed book about picking techniques, and there’s certainly no way one could get a better value than this. This is without a doubt the most useful guitar book I’ve ever had the chance to read. If you’re serious about improving your mechanics, this is a must-buy.”
