-Over 200 useful, digestible, exercises-
-Comprehensive coverage of Picking, Legato, Rhythm and Expressive Techniques-

There’s a myth amongst many guitarists that excellent technique can only be achieved via years of practice.

Complete Technique for Modern Guitar destroys the notion that aspiring players must spend all their practice time accelerating through progressively more difficult and obscure exercises. This book focuses on only the exercises that most quickly develop the fundamental four areas of guitar technique: Picking, Legato, Playing in time, and expression.

Each exercise is accompanied by a full explanation, practice hints, and an individual audio track to make sure you are making the most of your practice time.

Only exercises which generate immediate, tangible improvements are included so there is always an immediate, musical benefit to your playing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Concise, clear and inspiring 23. April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Before launching into the material Joseph Alexander gives you some food for thought. What do you want to play? How much practice do you need? Remember, it's all about playing music! Not about performing finger acrobatics.

In the content part, there is loads to choose from, even if the book is not thousands of pages thick. I'm a hobby guitarist, who can't afford hours of practice a day, so obviously I had to focus on a few exercises, if I didn't want to end up only practicing. For the fretting hand I chose finger independence and strength excercises. From the expression themes I picked vibrato. The excercises are explained in a clear and concise way. The credo is maximum payoff for your effort. The audio samples are downloadable. For vibrato, Joseph Alexander has posted a video showing the technique live. The exercises are definitely paying off. They are very effective and you definitely feel pumped out after 5 minutes of training any one of them. Stick with them and the abilities will manifest.

This book together with the "The CAGED System and100 Licks for the Blues Guitar" has taken my playing far further than I had hoped for. If you follow them, you will be able to improvise, jam and really enjoy your guitar. It's up to yourself to set your goals and the proportion between skill building and reaping the results. For skill building, I've found no better books nor media on the Internet than the ones by Joseph Alexander.

5.0 von 5 Sternen superb technical foundation for guitarists 14. März 2013
Von Andre
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is the answer to allmost all questions dealing with deficits in technique.
There are exercises targeting allmost every common lack you can possible have playing your instrument.

The exercises are quite simple, so you can easily learn them by heart and repeat them everyday prio to your "normal" practicing.
A few minutes every day are enough to make sufficient improvement within a short time.

I love it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! 13. September 2013
Von Animate Reality - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am fairly new to guitar,having been playing off and on less than a year. I get frustrated and quit for a bit then pick it up again. I've tried many different books and internet videos for help over the course of a year.

I'm at a point in my playing that I can play well many open chords, barre chords, and have memorized the 1st 4 positions of the Am Pent. scale.

Sadly, I've been unable to do much with it. As I have many issues with timing. Its very poor, and I struggle with it. Constantly falling out of time, having issues if going from 1/4-1/8 - 16th notes etc.
Pick control - Pick/Hand co-ordination has also been a huge fail for me. Specifically when picking individual notes and string skipping.

Basically, when it comes to memorizing a chord shape or scale pattern, I pick it up rather quickly. Beyond that its been a tough road for me.

I picked up this book, since it claimed to target the specific areas I need the most help in. And I'm glad I did.

Ive only been at it for 3 days now, but already showing improvement in my weakest areas.Though I still need to do a lot of work, I am no doubt seeing results.

Mr. Alexander does a great job explaining what and why you are doing what you are doing and how to properly do it. And it works.

I've also learned that I'm simply trying to bite off more than I can chew by playing too quickly too soon, thus building bad technique and habits.

So, I have been doing several 15-30 minute practice sessions a day thus far, doing exactly as instructed. And a few minutes of just whatever.... but slowing it way down and implementing picking/timing lessons Ive learned so far.
There really is an improvement.

He also was kind enough to send me a PDF copy so I can print out for my music stand. Sometimes its easier than the Kindle version.

I highly recommend this book. I will be trying others as well once I get a better grip on my biggest issues, which this book covers.
Very satisfied and will buy more of Mr.Alexanders books in the future.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great excersies 8. Mai 2013
Von Johann - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This guy really knows how to write an instruction book that is actually useful. After buying a few titles on Amazon and being disappointed, Joseph's books have been by far the most useful (at this time I have three of his books).

I have been an acoustic-strumming-only guitar player for years. I bought an electric a few years ago, but I have basically been playing it like an acoustic. Now I'm really trying to expand my playing. I have been really stuck in finding good exercises for someone of my level. This book gives me a ton of stuff to work on and explains very well the benefits of learning these techniques.

It would be great to have a companion book over different picking techniques. This book talks about the concept of alternate picking, but I would like to have some good exercises on picking patterns (both with a pick and finger-style).

Most instruction books like this have a CD with the physical book, but offer nothing for Kindle versions making the books worthless. However, with this book you get to download the audio from his web site. Very awesome. And if you want the book as PDF, he'll send that also.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Develop technique that will put you heads and shoulders above other players 23. April 2014
Von Humbert - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Most guitarists are able to distinguish between very good or even great players and those players who are just AMAZING. And the primary thing that makes the difference is that amazing players possess a highly developed sense of rhythm (besides possessing all of the other qualities which makes one amazing). And of course this includes very clean and solid picking techniques and developing your ear in order to apply just the right rhythmic approach and technique to any given situation. Obviously, you do need to know the right notes to play (scales, arpeggios, licks against chord changes). These topics are covered very well in many of this author's other books. But once you feel confident that you know the fretboard relative to chord changes - then this book (or the things covered in this book) need to be your focus. This book covers in perfectly clear detail, many exercises to help you build and use technique in many different scenarios. Once you begin to master what's offered in this book, you will have achieved a level of real musicality in your playing instead of vanilla, rote executions of scales and licks - no matter how smooth and fast you are with these executions. And as you use this book, just remember to stay experimental and above all, have fun!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great addition to the collection! 1. Februar 2013
Von Vekster - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book, focuses on what most of us guitarists tend to not concentrate on. That is the technique, technique and technique. I've been playing guitar for 10 years now, and at some point we all get to the point we're we feel like we're not improving, we've reached a plateau. We wonder if it's our own limitations that prevent us from being the guitarists of our dreams. This book is wonderful for any level of guitar player. Honestly, you follow these exercises, and page by page you'll see yourself improving day by day. I've only started it but it's already making me look at the way I play. If you want to be the 'perfect' play it's all about technique guys. Get on it!

I've been playing guitar for 20 years or thereabouts and still have problems with my many deficiencies.
This is the third book I've bought by Mr. Alexander, and as with the other two I am very impressed. The ability to break things down into their necessary components, makes it so much easier to move around the neck and understand exactly what's going on at any given time. This book is invaluable to me as far as clear, concise and constructive practice are concerned. I cannot thank the author enough for his wonderful series of practical and instructive books.
