    This is a fantastic scale book for guitarist and one that I submit to often. I still haven’t found the ONE perfect scale book (therefore only four stars), but this one comes close. It is one of three scale books that I use, and because of its compact size, it is usually the one that I have handy when I need it. Troy does a fantastic job of explaining the scales and giving some exercises for practice. What I like best about this book is that it shows the scales in all positions across 22 frets with the root clarification highlighted. Also, many scale books only show fretboard diagrams of the scales in one key, usually C or E and then clarify how to go them around. This book includes diagrams of several keys (including G and A, which are favorites of mine). The only other thing I wish about this book is that it was spiral bound so it would lay flat when open, but I would rather have this book than any of the other gig bag sized ones that are spiral bound. All in all a fantastic small scale reference and cheap too!

    By far it contains a wide diverse set of scales, fingerings, and even a few exotic scales at the end. It is small enough to fit in any gig bag or guitar case, making it very conveninet. Unlike other scale/method books that present one scale and make a few variaitions on it, this one uses entirely different scales in different keys…..another fantastic book by Troy Stetina

    I like this book. I just read the 1st couple of pages and “click”, I am starting to see the relationship linking clarification on the fret board. He shows the shapes and clarifies how to go them on the fretboard. This was something I was tiresome to get my guitar teacher to show me and all I got was “memorize the circle of fifths.” Stetina’s explanations about scales, how they are used, and his exmamples are clear and concise. I highly reccomend this book to anyone tiresome to learn guitar.
