Ralph Denyer Guitar Handbook

I couldn’t begin to imagine how many times I have opened this book, I’ve owned it for around twenty years and I still use it today. If something happened to it I would immediately order a replacement. So what’s so cool about it? Well to be honest it’s not particularly exiting or anything like that, it’s also not exactly a guitar teaching book either. Read more…

With that, I put on the bookshelf and decided to look at it another day. Okay, that was about three years ago and I wanted to write something about it for this website so today was a good day to take another look at it.

You can never have enough straight up lick, exercise and workout books for guitar. Of course out of those three, licks are going to be the most exciting. I’d probably buy this book but I am a guitar lick junkie and I’m sure I’d get something out of it. Read more…
