This an instructional book. The book also contains an instructional cd. The author of the book is Troy Stetina. My favorite aspect of the book is that the book comes with an instructional cd. One can hear the tracks played in the book, therefore, he/she can have a better understanding of what is being played.

I will say, if your purpose is mastering alternate picking and developing speed and ease over the fretboard, and learn most popular licks, this is a nice and compact book for that. You wont get burned out or frustrated in the middle, and yet you will definitely find a noticable improvement in your speed and ability. There is not much theory included, though. In a way, that makes it easier to follow for the beginners.

Althought I will not recommend it to someone who is holding a guitar for the first time, I will say someone who has fooled around the fretboard for a few months should be a perfect candidate.

this was very similar to the first book i ever bought. i got it the day i got my first guitar. this book is a must for lead guitarist wanna-be. within the first day i had learned so much from the book. it covers a lot of ground to leave the beginner wanting to read on.
