Chris Letchford's technique book?

Sup people!

I have a question for you guys that have seen or own Chris Letchfords (Scale the summit) technique book. Is it a good book worth of buying?

He is an amazing technical player and i love their music so i thought since he got good technique the book must be good, but i want to make sure.

Thanks in advance.

Never heard of a technique book from them. I got the tab book for "The Collective" though, that was definitely worth it.

I've heard it's good and there's some useful stuff but there's not much writing and it's pretty short. If you want to learn some new stuff for improving your technique and also want to support the band, go ahead.

I took a look through it at their merch table a few months ago, and it looked pretty sweet. I would get it if I had some extra money to spend.

Okay, It's been a little while since you posted this question, but I have the book. I think it's worth it. Just don't expect it to teach you anything about theory and writing. It is simply a book of (challenging) exercises.
My upcoming album.

I love the technique book personally, extremely informative and fun to learn.

I just recently got my copy of The Migration - I hope to find tabs for this album soon too! This album is soooo good. My favorite out of their releases thus far!
