Is it worth buying? Im really in need of a good book. I've always been a metalhead and always dreamed of being the lead guitarist of a metal band. Will this book help?
Crappy Gear:
Ibanez RG350DX
Ibanez RG7321
LTD F-10
Dunlop Jazz III's (Black)
D'Addarrio .09-.46's
probably not, just get lessons
Epiphone Les Paul Special 2
Samick Corsair (custom evh paint job)
Bever Creek Acoustic

Yeah i'd get it, i'd get it even if you were having lessons aswell.

Its a good book to learn from.

As for not playing metal...............
