“Chris Brooks can take the most complicated and advanced of subjects, break it down to the easiest thing possible and help you become a master! I recommend this book and everything else Chris has written”

“The best book on sweep picking I’ve seen. If you’ve never looked at the technique, it’s perfect to gain significant skill in the technique. If you’re quite experienced, then you’ll still learn a lot from it, and if you’re a teacher, it’ll give you some great ideas on how to show this to other.”

“I cannot recommend this book highly enough for any guitarist wishing to begin sweeping or even wanting to improve their technique.”
