I have been playing guitar for the last 22yrs(I haven't actually 'practiced' all those years IMS), so most of the exercises are easy.. I started going through this book a few months ago; I do a few sessions per day starting at the fastest tempo that I can handle and work my way up to the highest tempo.
Most of the exercises are fairly easy but some get more challenging as you go through it... I was always a master at alternate picking, string skipping, legatos and arpeggios(those are very easy to me).. As you get further; the jazz exercises get to be a challenge; as I've never really played jazz chords all that much before this.. Some of the country ones are a challenge as well.. And if you're new to sweep picking, as I was, then this is also a good start to practice your 'rolling finger' technique...
With all that said it is not a 'super advanced' book. But, it's pretty good for someone that wants to hone in on their guitar playing development; or may have reached a plateau in their playing and can challenge themselves with something that they may not be used to playing.... For me it was the Jazz ones and country bending techniques....
As far as it being 'begining to advanced'.... Well... It's definitely not a book for someone who only knows a few chords.....
If your mother just taught you the basic major and minor chords; you might want to learn more first... If you took lessons for a year or so you can start with this I guess.. But, you might get too challenged as a beginner and get very discouraged...
IMO there are exercises in week 52 that are easier than in the previous weeks...
Let each guitarist make his/her discernment...

A lot to read. I've played for a long time, so the beginning section is quite slow. It also probably doesn't help that I play by ear, so to read the book and then listen to the DVD... Read morePublished 5 months ago by DaJack
