This short but sweet book is a compilation of all of Joe's columns from the classic Guitar For The Practicing Musician magazine. Most of the lessons are nice and short but contain great exercises and ideas from this master teacher who taught Steve Vai, Alex Skolnick and Kirk Hammett. I like the fact that you do not need to go through the book in order. You can simply open it to any page and grab a cool concept to work on. This is so reasonably priced you would be foolish not to grab it. Whether you are an intermediate or advanced player you will find something to spur your musical creativity.

This book does have a lot of excellent exercises, but what makes this book really great is the fact that some of the "lessons" go more into things like music theory and getting to know the fretboard inside and out. There are many sections that are intended to help you know more about your guitar and how to get it to do what you want it to do rather than just learning scales and picking exercises.

Overall this is an excellent book for guitarists who want to understand the best ways to really get to know their instrument and to improve playing as well.

I've been a fan of Joe's playing since 'Not Of This Earth' and used to follow his old column religiously. This is all of them put together with a liberal dose of his esthetic thrown in (don't look for tabs from songs, all lessons and creative process here).

This is an excellent lesson book and it IS a LESSON book NOT a SONG book. I had this book before and loaned it out and never got it back, so I had to order it again. You cant go wrong with Satch!

Short but sweet. Packed full of useful information from a modern master. Every serious guitarist needs this booklet. I would have liked to see the index linked in the text. As it is, the index only shows the page.

This book takes a lesson a month for a total of 41 private lessons. Everything you would need to become a better player: chords, articulations, octaves, modal/triad arpeggios, and a bunch more great lessons! And Scales and Modes, and he touches on the Hungarian mode and the Gypsy mode a little bit! Great instructional tool!

Hey everyone. I've been playing for about 4 years now and Joe Satriani is by far my favorite guitarist. If you can master the techniques that Joe uses (MANY of which are outlined here), you will be able to make the music you dream of. Many of the exercises in here are things I haven't seen or done before, many that I have, but all of which can really improve your skills. If you're looking for a good, cheap, quick way to expand your practices, grab a copy of this.
