Read full description of the books:
Probably the most meaningful praise I can give for this excellent book is to say that it's a book I wish I could somehow transport back in time and put on the shelf of my early teenage self. Alas, my learning materials at the time were limited to the (fairly awful) Ernie Ball 3-chord books; the odd issue of Guitar World / Guitar For The Practicing Musician; Ralph Denyer's respectable, but hardly pedagogical, Guitar Handbook; plus whatever materials I could scrounge from my best mate -- who was doing the smart thing and actually taking lessons, and was kind enough to share the goodies.
Speaking of lessons, Guthrie Govan comes across as an extremely humble, down-to-earth character -- the kind of guy who would be an inspirational teacher. His style is very conversational, and he dispenses many nuggets of wisdom and guitar lore without ever giving the impression that he's coming from some inaccessible higher-plane of understanding. This is quite remarkable, since even a casual listen to his guitar playing (starting with the practice tracks on the CD included with the book) reveals that he IS in fact on such a higher-plane.
I've marked this one as "read" since I've finished reading it from cover-to-cover, but the exercises and ideas will be on my "currently-practising" list for a long time to come.
