First and foremost, my review of this classic book is coming from the perspective of a primarily a jazz guitarist coming from a classical guitar background. Please do read the review within that context! For classical guitarists, you may see the book from different perspectives.
A few years ago, I saw an Adam Rogers video mentioning this same book and how it helped his technique. Knowing that Adam was classically trained and is also a world class jazz guitarist made me want to reexamine this book again.
In my opinion, the fingerings in this book are useful for developing: 1 Fluid scale technique 2 Position changes 3 Balanced tone production. From the angle of a jazz guitarist, this book was more a useful technique building resource than for developing strong fretboard visualisation skills for melodic single note improvisation.
That same angle makes this book useful for guitarists of all styles who play in standard tuning as long as they are aware of it.
I also realised that the book is most effective when actually practiced every exercise in the book in one session rather than just playing it in one or a few keys. Going through the entire book provides a strong workout that has been helpful every time I practiced from the book. Pros: Concise short book. Cons: Results may vary depending on how you practice the material.
