REVIEW by Bryan Felt:

“This book is seriously good.  Especially page 33; you spell it out as simple as pie – Step 1, Step 2, Step 3.  This method is quite approachable, and not at all intimidating.  It’s not scary for a young person.  It’s not like they have to work at it for 20 years before they try this on-stage.  It’s perfect for less-experienced players!   Step-3 in the book is so good; it demonstrates to any musician that they CAN do this!”
