Finally, after plugging away for 18 months on Barrett Tagliarino's <i>Guitar Fretboard Workbook</i>, I've completed exercise #59, the last in the book (except for a "final project" he leaves you with at the end), I can report on my experience with it. I would say that thanks to this book, my guitar-playing has improved more in the last 18 months than it has in any comparable period since I bought my Sigma acoustic guitar in 1977. Speaking for myself, Mr. Tagliarino's objective in writing this workbookhelping ...more

Before I started to read "Guitar Fretboard Workbook", I would usually search for the tabs of my favourite songs online and start playing. Then I would encounter a difficulty and in a frustration from trying to understand how I could play it correctly, put my guitar aside. I came to realize that learning guitar by myself on trial and error takes too much time and decreases my confidence in mastering the guitar. When I saw this book, I knew it was how I should be paving my way to guitar mastery.<br />A ...more

I always preferred learning the guitar from magazines rather than books. It always seemed books were out dated and wanted to teach you boring songs from the 20s and rarely discussed any advanced soloing techniques. This book is pretty good for the advanced stuff, but to really learn the guitar you will need the book <b>How to Become a Guitar Player from Hell</b> by Jason Earls. Google the title to find out more.

MI always releases good material for learners. After struggling with a few other books, I happened upon this one. Boy, was I glad! Barrett Tagliarino structures the information effectively. Follow the instructions in the book, spend time mastering the lessons and you just might give yourself a chance at becoming a musician. I like the emphasis he places on developing sound fundamentals. I find this book far more cogent and lucid than most others in the market. I did not finish all the work in this ...more

This book rocks! Hard to imagine a better introduction to the instrument. Builds a solid foundation for fretboard memorization, scales (theory and practice), chord construction, triads, arpeggios... simply put, going beyond the beginner's plateau of basic major and minor chords. Id recommend going through the author's <i>Guitar Reading Workbook</i> at the same time, since the two books are complementary. Great stuff!<br /> ...more

It's a very interesting book with approaches to how we see the fretboard, but if you really want to understand the music theory behind it you'll have to buy another book because on MY opinion the book lacks a lot information and sometimes gives you shortcuts of things that you can't really grasp what they are.
