excellent work on conditioning and fundamentals June 12 2008
By Aubrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jody Fisher is a good teacher. Patient, methodical, not assuming you already know things, he walks you through basics, from how to sit to how to hold each hand and finger and how to pick, and he provides and demonstrates exercises which have been very good practice for me in fundamental technique.

Like many older guys taking up guitar again, and having learned in a pretty casual manner, I am weak on fundamentals and have bad habits which impede my progress and even caused tendonitous in my left elbow - very painful, I don't recommend it! Jody is the man, I feel better and play better. Thanks, Jody!

Appropriately named. Dec 21 2011
By Minnesott Sailor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is aptly named because it will definitely give you a workout. The four warmups in here are excellent. those exercises actually took me about a week to do correctly and at the end of that week, I could not believe the finger strength and dexterity I had gained. It really spurred me on to tackle the workouts. The "workouts" are also very excellent. As an aspiring guitar player, this book has shown me exercises that I could have probably never found anywhere else. This book helped me discover a lot of new ground in my technique. Sticking with the exercise, I have developed a set of guitar hands that I never would have thought I have. I generally play each exercise for a week before I move on to the next one. I try to perfect it. I use the exercises as warmups because they are about the most effective warm up excercise I've discovered.

The "Chordiac" workouts are the 2nd part of each workout and are also excellent, each one building upon the last and opening up new harmonic ground on the instrument. This book is fantastic and is helping me develop a more technical and musical playing style. It's work, but it is well worth it in the end.

Excellent Technique Builder July 20 2010
By thedukewestern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a professional guitar teacher and performer. The four warmups in here are excellent, and the "workouts" themselves are also excellent. This book helped me break alot of new ground in my technique, and through the excercises develop, as jodi refers to it, a more balanced set of hands. I started with this book four years ago and revisit it often, and use the warmups religiously before gigs.

Being originally a drummer by education, a guitarist would compare the chromatic excercises in this book to "rudiments", as they often force you to perform unusual position shifts and picking/ finger combinations. The "Chordiac" workouts, (chord drills) are the 2nd part of each workout and are also excellent, each one building upon the last and opening up new harmonic ground on the instrument. This book has and still helps me eliminate technical and musical learning gaps in my playing.

Good book but the DVD is incomplete Jan. 10 2010
By harrythompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very few of the examples in the book are demonstrated. The DVD focuses more on developing correct picking technique and only demonstrates several of the 50 or so exercises. However this is still a good book as is Jazz Chops by Buck Brown.
I would say that Jody concentrates much more on chords than single lines in this workout book, as the single lines are mindless permutations for beginners while the chords are at an intermediate level. Strange mix of ideas here. Maybe Im biased because Im considered a lead guitar player though I believe that is a polite way of saying my rhythm is weak.

Should of been a five! March 8 2012
By Tim D. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book seems to be well written and useful. The only reason it did not get a five is because it comes with a DVD, (if you order the one that does.) It comes without the DVD as well, Be careful when ordering and watch for misleading advertisement.Also watch the second hand vendors. I bought it second hand the vendor stated if it comes with DVD it is their but sent one did not come with DVD. Misleading (to sell) advertising. You might as well get a DVD as well.
