    If you mean the book by Chuck Sher, then yes it's excellent.
     
  3. if you mean the one by Ed Freidland it's great too but you nedd to know standard notation and it's not basic. You need to have your ears up and runnig if you get the idea.

    Yeah I mean the one by Ed Freidland, I know theory and standard notation, I am on that part of the way that I practice and practice to develop my ear but could took years, now I don't play covers I just practice modes, triad, 7th arpeggios, etc. But my ears are a very very slow donkey, :D .

    I have it and believe it's a decent book. BUT, I've found Adam Nitti's intsruction at Music Dojo logical and the concepts building on each other. A very holistic approach if you will.

    BTW, I have NFI, just a satisfied student.

    The Friedland book is excellent. I loved the chapter on harmony grids (hominy and grits)
