HASH(0x9c6c4210) out of 5 stars 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!

HASH(0x9c6c445c) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9c6c4420) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9c6c4918) out of 5 stars Doesn't read well on the Kindle Sept. 13 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been using this book for a few days now and find that the exercises are very good. However, because the publisher put the left hand fingering in the black fret-position dots on the chord charts, the charts are very difficult to read on the Kindle. I even put them on the Kindle reader on my desktop machine with a large display and the fingerings were still hard to read, although much better than on the Kindle's small screen.

For that reason only I give the Kindle edition a three-star rating. The Kindle edition is much less expensive than the print edition and comes without the DVD. But still, a book of exercises written out in diagrams should have completely legible diagrams. If the left hand fingerings were written under the string on the diagram as I have seen in other books it would have worked better. I would have much preferred the classical guitar method of writing the fingerings next to the notes on the musical staff to this.

HASH(0x9c6c47b0) out of 5 stars An Athletic Workout for Guitarists May 28 2012
By D M Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Imagine you're a pro baseball player. When you play a game, you don't really get much practice batting, catching, throwing, or running. You need to practice those skills seperately and intensely so that when you're called on to use them in a game, you can do them well.

The exercises in this book are for what's essentially that same purpose. There are workouts that build the strength and dexterity your left hand needs for playing single notes and chords, and ones that develop the picking and plucking skills your right hand demands. I find that with this training, playing tunes comes more easily, and I sound better too.
