        Musicroom Reviews

        Allan Holdsworth is a guitar genius and is a giant in the world of music. This book offers insight into his strange technique and different ways of thinking about the guitar. Allan is not bound by major scales and modes but sees his guitar as a whole in all positions. This book is not for the faint hearted nor is for a beginner. This book explains the guitar, how he sees it and encourages you to think well outside the box of standard thinking. It also has excellent transcriptions of his tunes.
