I play blues and jazz and am very interested in increasing my speed (who isnt?). I heard about this book and I was wondering if anyone has used this method and if it is good for building speed

I'm working my way through it now. I haven't gotten very far, but it's really good.
Just be prepared to scrap your technique and start all over again.

It's a sick book if you're really strict with it and work hard on it

does it teach me just to shred? I am not interested in shred music. My goal is to be able to solo over fast blues and jazz. That "clean" shred I guess you would call it haha, like Stevie Ray Vaughan type speed.

It doesn't teach a style of music, it teaches technical skill.

oh ok because some of these guitar books on speed just teach you how to play shred licks and thats not what I want

What are the differences between this and the Rock Discipline book? also, how does it make you want to change your technique?
#13
^This>Rock Discipline. It goes more in depth in the mechanics of picking and fretting and just doesn't give you a ton of exercises. It makes you change your technique if you're not play efficently enough, like using too many fingers to hold the pick,or you're not accenting right, ect..
#14
This book is much better than Rock Discipline, and Rock Discipline is a pretty damn good book.
