Format: Paperback
Here's the deal. I've been blessed with a good ear - good enough that I have little trouble learning pretty much anything I could want to play by ear. However, if you serious about being a musician rather than just a guitar player, you need to learn to read music - I liken this to being able to communicate verbally but still being completely illiterate.

I am currently working through Bill Edwards' Fretboard Logic series (THE last word on learning the guitar - period). Arnie Berle's New Guitar Techniques for Sight Reading is an excellent companion to the Fretboard Logic books. Mr. Berle's book treats sight reading on the guitar in the same no nonsense manner that Mr. Edwards teaches the mechanics of playing. I love Arnie Berle's articles in Guitar Player and this is book is not a disappointment.

I have not found any better method for learning to sight read - period. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. It will take some work but it is worth it!
