5.0 out of 5 stars A gem - make sure you also download the audio files.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 16, 2021
I really wish there was a human being who validated reviews - my preceding, highly detailed review was not allowed because Amazon said I commented on who sold it. (I bought it direct from Amazon!) Even a cursory glance would show how inaccurate that was. I have neither time time nor inclination to try to repeat what I wrote before, which is a shame because I tried to show just how useful this book can be.

All I'll say now is that as long as you're willing to think, practise and learn from the basic which the author provides, this gives you a way to really get into pentatonic scales, boxes and patterns. From there he provides ways to learn how to transpose and extend along the fretboard.

Please note, this book just focuses on the standard 5 note pentatonic scale. Once you're familiar with the basic, you can extend these yourself to include the blues scales by adding a flattened 5th note. (eg: Am pentatonic scale uses A C D E G so just add the flattened 5th to get A C D Eb E G.)

Exercise tracks are similar but there are variations. All are played 'flat' with no expression - that's left to you.
Backing tracks are all 3m 3s long and use exactly the same rhythm so there's no need to cope with changes of tempo.
The writer makes it as easy as he can for you - but leave it to you to make the best of a real little gem of a book.
A good example is given of one type of 'box' for a scale and that is later developed to show you how to work out transpositions along the fretboard - but you are left do do that using the guidelines give. As the author says, this is not a beginners book. Some pre-existing knowledge is assumed.

I chose to renumber the audio files as shown in the image.

I'm sorry, but having spent over an hour writing the review Amazon declined, I'm too fed up to try repeating and adjusting it. If Amazon block this one, then they need to adjust their algorithm or employ human checkers.
