I want to master acoustic fingerstyle guitar and this book/CD fits the bill perfectly. I ordered it online from his website and had no hassles at all, delivered on time, etc. After a month, myself and others can definately see an improvement in my fingerstyle playing. The CD is a real plus, as Mark plays all the examples, as well as the 14 songs so that you can compare against the tab/standard notation. The songs are played at both half speed and then performance speed and this has really made a difference for me. The songs are great, not your typical, "Mary Had A Little Lamb", stuff, material that I will be proud to eventually master and play for myself and others. The book lays flat so it is easy to place on a music stand or flat surface and makes the practice sessions easy. Definately should be part of any aspiring and/or accomplished acoustic fingerstyle players book arsenal.
