        Eddie knows his stuff, and has a nice sense of humour as well. Some very useful ideas, songwriters would benefit too. The book does get very complicated in the later chapters though (the dreaded modes...). You will need some basic music theory to get the best out of this book. I found some of his cords a real stretch too.
