I purchased lots of instructional books at that time. Matter of fact, I was obsessed with instructional material. VHS tapes, books, music magazines… anything to help me get to grips with the mysteries of music. All of my other instructional books presented some sort of solution. They provided a method, a certain way of doing things.
Learn this chord voicing and Miles Davis will call you to join his band. It made me quite irritated at first. Why spend my money and then still have to deal with all those questions about music?
Explore counterpoint and harmonic material from all above modes and scales for at least 20 years. Now, all those years later I simply have to smile because I know that 20 years of exploring counterpoint and harmony only let you realize you are scratching the surface of the surface. A ton of information is packed into the pages. More than enough to keep you busy for a lifetime.
This is not a book for an absolute beginner, although it would put you on a great path. The lack of tablature might make it difficult to apply the material directly to the instrument and large parts of the book might be way over your head, at first. At least once a year I pull out the book and skim through it. Something that I simply did not catch, or was unable to comprehend the last time.
The Advancing Guitarist is a book full of wisdom that does not force anything upon you. It does not try to convert you to a certain view or push some special playing technique or gimmick. Just have a look at the title of this site to confirm that suspicion. A visual overhaul would spruce up the feel of the book and make it a tad more friendly. But all the topics like slash chords, progression cycles, vamps, fragments and permutations could really benefit from some demo tracks with the material in use.
Even if you play another instrument you should at least check it out. Buy The Advancing Guitarist from Amazon. Want More? I only publish an article when I have something to say.

My copy is getting close to falling apart as well.
I totally agree with you. When I got the book a couple of years ago, most of it was way over my head. But every time I work with the book again I discover new things.
So, definitely a key purchase for me. Is there a book before this that you would recommend for someone picking up the guitar again after a few years not playing but still a beginner trying to get somewhere? Creative Guitar covers the basic theory, chord voicings as well as the standard scale choices for improvising which you can apply over the added backing playbacks.

I completely agree with this review. I have had this book for about 10 years and it comes out from time to time and it inspires me or sets me on the path to learn something new. It is kind of like having an old guitar-playing friend who gives you some valuable advice. What you do with this advice all depends on your current playing level and understanding of music and your commitment to practicing and exploring the suggestions.
Personally this is one of my top ten guitar books and I have shelves full of music books. Thanks for taking the time to share — and for your approval. Reading the reviews I have decided to give this book another go. You are probably thinking that you need a 24 fret guitar due to the high E note in the example. However, that note is to be played on the A-string — at the 19th fret.
The lower note of the 2nd-octave-stack is a D, which is on the 22nd fret of your low E-string. So, you only need a guitar with 22 frets to play the exercise as suggested. Initially, when I got started on guitar I was very much into all the technical players like Satriani, Vai and Greg Howe. Hi, my name is Marko.
