          Musicroom Reviews

          This book is good if you are sick of playing the same old scales and want something different. The only let downs are that there are no scale shapes, only formulas (which makes life difficult for those of us who are lacking in the theory side of things) and the backings are a bit on the poor quality side. To be honest, I think this is aimed at the jazzers, but as a death metal player I have managed to pick some bits out. Worth a shot!
