    Jody Fisher is a excellent teacher. Patient, methodical, not assuming you already know things, he walks you through basics, from how to sit to how to hold each hand and fiddle with and how to pick, and he provides and demonstrates exercises which have been very excellent practice for me in fundamental technique.

    Like many older guys taking up guitar again, and having learned in a sweet casual manner, I am weak on fundamentals and have terrible habits which impede my progress and even caused tendonitous in my left elbow – very painful, I don’t recommend it! Jody is the man, I feel better and play better. Thanks, Jody!

    Brilliant Technique Builder, July 20, 2010

    This review is from: 30-Day Guitar Exercises (Book & DVD ) (Paperback)

    I am a professional guitar teacher and architect. The four warmups in here are brilliant, and the “workouts” themselves are also brilliant. This book helped me break alot of new ground in my technique, and through the excercises develop, as jodi refers to it, a more balanced set of hands. I started with this book four years ago and revisit it often, and use the warmups religiously before gigs.

    Being originally a drummer by education, a guitarist would equate the chromatic excercises in this book to “rudiments”, as they often force you to perform unusual position shifts and picking/ fiddle with combinations. The “Chordiac” workouts, (chord drills) are the 2nd part of each exercises and are also brilliant, each one construction upon the last and opening up new harmonic ground on the instrument. This book has and still helps me eliminate technical and musical culture gaps in my playing.

    Excellent book but the DVD is shared, January 10, 2010

    Very few of the examples in the book are demonstrated. The DVD focuses more on developing right picking technique and only demonstrates several of the 50 or so exercises. But this is still a excellent book as is Jazz Chops by Buck Brown.
    I would say that Jody concentrates much more on chords than single lines in this exercises book, as the single lines are mindless permutations for beginners while the chords are at an intermediate level. Weird mix of thoughts here. Maybe Im biased because Im considered a lead guitar player though I judge that is a polite way of saying my rhythm is weak.
