Essential for beginner to intermediate and even advanced may learn a thing or two. Works as reference and instruction. Very well done.
I recommend the spiral bound as it is a study book and needs to be used, not read and put on the shelf.
Similar to Fretboard Logic and I recommend both. This one goes into more depth and can be a bit more difficult to find a certain reference point but the devil is in the details.
The lists of songs in keys is a great idea! Beginners and even advanced have difficulty figuring out keys of songs. This gets you started and provides examples to jam with and start getting into the mechanics of guitar playing.
Desi has done a wonderful job and I look forward to buying more of his material as I complete this.
The biggest selling point for me is that the book does an excellent job of relating music theory to guitar.
You will understand why it helps to know these things and will want to learn as a resul.
The lessons are laid out to nicely build on the knowledge from previous chapters. The book made me learn things I was not able to process before.
However, there are two things to keep in mind. One is that this is not for total beginners. You need to have some guitar basics and most of interest in learning theory.
Second is that the book encourages you to buy the online videos and it's true that they will accelerate your learning process significantly. So treat this book as something that will build up your appetite.
Why do I value the book. Well, the CAGED system is made very simple but the key for me was his approch to chords and songs. I felt that the book gave me an insight into how to visually recognise chord progressions. I suddenly noticed the logical patterns behind what I saw when watching vidoes of guitar players and I really do feel that he has opened up the guitar neck with the Cage approach. Now I understand the guitar and how songs are played on it. As a beginner I could not see beyond open chords but now I see how many chords are available when you start mastering barre chords and looking at fragments of them in songs which are played live. After 6 months of really putting time into learning guitar I now have a good grasp of what is going on. Before that I spent a year learning chords and mucking about with techniques/scales which did help but I learnt no real songs. I was very stuck and this book has been the second beakthrough for me (which I purchased after the Dummies book he wrote dug me out of my frustrations).
I am a beginner but moving very fast and learning songs will be my mission this year. This book is great if you are serious. There is no quick fix with learning guitar. However, any player who can't use this book in some way needs to question what they are up to. Many thanks to the author for being pedagogically superb and supplying quality videos. Would love to see a guitar for kids version.
