I was wondering if anyone else has read this book. It's not really an instructional book. It's sort of like a martial arts discipline, approach to music/guitar. I know that probably sounds strange. But I found it very helpful.

One particular section dealing with the discipline, describes discipline as this;

"Do what has to be done, when it has to be done, as well as it can be done, and do it that way every time."

As a guitar instructor, I see students who practice some things with a lot of enthusiasm. Yet when it comes to learning say, scales. They just go through the motions.
I think reading Zen Guitar, helped me understand focus and balance. I would encourage everyone to check it out.
It's a very easy read. I'm not a big reader, and I finished it in two days.
There's my way and the wrong way.

I haven't even heard of it, was it written by the same author?? Or are you just saying sequal because it's similar? In anycase if it's similar i'm interested to know about it.
