        Amazing!! if you want to know some quick skills on the guitar when you already know how to play the classical guitar this is for you. This very helpful as it gave exercises that really stretched you and this can prepare you for anything!

        This was bought for my eldest who has been through all the Rockschool Guitar Grades from Debut. He says that the tunes are really good, and actually not that much harder than Grade 7 in the old syllabus. Mind you he has only just started them! My feeling is that they leave more room from personal expression, while developing that extra level of musicianship.
