I spend 15 to 30 minutes with this book each day and notice clear progress by the end of each session. Excellent drills.

I've been playing guitar since the early 1980s as a hobbiest and songwriter. I'm a decent rhythm guitarist, but I never quite understood how to improvise on lead, and my dexterity wasn't good enough. I could accompany myself singing but was never what I'd call "good" on guitar. I bought this book to improve my skills as a lead guitarist. I've only been using it for a few weeks, and it is tremendous!

I've worked through the first few weeks of lessons, and my skills already show a marked improvemen

These exercises won't serve as a complete

The exercises that Nelson provides turned out to be very useful. I saw a significant improvement in my technique over the months I worked on this book and I practiced only about 30-40 minutes a day. The only negative feedback I can give is that some of the exercises simply cannot be played on the acoustic guitar since there aren't enough frets (e.g. I could only partially go through the exercises that include the 20th/21st fret since my acoustic guitar only has 21 frets). Otherwise, the whole co ...more

If there’s one thing certain about Troy Nelson—a life-long guitar player and author of top-selling instructional books Guitar Aerobics, Fretboard Freedom, and Rhythm Guitar 365—it’s that he knows how to keep busy.

Born in the small town of Viroqua, Wisconsin (population 4,000), Nelson picked up the guitar at the age 14, after months of begging his parents for an axe. He tapped into his savings acco
