I've been playing guitar for 3-4 years and I think I'm an intermediate player. I decided to stop taking lessons because I don't think I was getting much out of them. So...now I'm looking for a book of exercises, scales, and things I can do to get better at guitar. Someone recommended the Guitar Grimoire but I found some bad reviews for it too. Any other suggestions?
try the "for dummies" series....no kidding here I bought the music theory for dummies and it is really easy to follow and there is so much information...besides that I just have a bunch of "pocket chord" and "pocket scales" books.
Modern method for guitar by w. leavitt it's all notes though
Speed Mechanics is really good. Another option is Rock Discipline by John Petrucci.
Thanks for the help guys. I think I'm gonna go with the Speed Mechanics book.
the guitar grimoire is one of the best books i have you should get it make sure its the scales and modes edition. I dont really use the modes but the book is basically an encyclopedia of scales. its not demonic although it looks like it
you shouldnt be buying stuff cuz other people give good or bad reviews on it. you should check it out first. whats crap to someone is someone else's treasure
I have Creative Guitar 2 by Guthrie Govan and Thrash Guitar Method by Troy Stetina, between these two books I have made more progress than anywhere else, possibly even lessons. Anything by either of those guys is worth the money.
Joe Satriani - Guitar secrets, that has alot of helpful excersises
