Good Guitar Workout
01.04.2015
This book contains a great program which focuses on finger independence, technique building by employing unorthodox techniques. I found this book was a huge benefit to the development of my playing.
The book also contains an insight and helpful tips on how to approach each lesson correctly.

Articulate and punctual!
Juha-Pekka, 04.08.2014
Though I've played guitar for many years I've never felt the need for "learn how to play like Steve Vai" (or who ever you find interesting). Simply because I don't want to play like they do. I just want to sound and play my own way.
This book is to my liking simply because it doesn't saturate you with "the famous licks and riffs" of Mr. Vai. Instead it focuses only on the techniques and practice routines that many players tend to oversee and think of as something "for the beginners". I think this book is suitable for all guitar players who are looking for a ready "practice routine manual" to learn and keep their playing techique alive.

Workout für Ambitionierte Gitarristen
21.01.2016
Wer auf Steve Vai steht oder generell gerne shreddet, dem kann ich dieses Übungsheft mit voller Überzeugung empfehlen.
Anfangs sind die Übungen noch relativ überschaubar aber der Anspruch wird relativ schnell nach oben geschraubt.
Ich selber arbeite erst einige Tage daran, wobei ich den 30h Workshop auf 5 Stunden pro Tag aufteile, da mir 10h pro Tag im Moment noch zu viel des Guten sind ;-)
Für Fortgeschrittene Gitarristen die ihr shredding ausbauen wollen, aber auch für Leute die einen Plan brauchen, wie sie üben können, ist dieses Heft optimal. Jedoch lohnt sich dieses Workout auch nur wenn man dran bleibt und viel übt. Ich ebenfalls spüre schon nach einigen Tagen von intensivem Üben Fortschritte.

Bekannter Steve Vai Workshop in gebundener Form
Philipp344, 11.05.2014
Vorliegendes Gitarren Lehrbuch ist die gebundene Form des in der Guitar World erschienen Workshops.

Vai zeichnet darin auf, wie man als Hobby Musiker, Profi Musiker oder Gitarrenvirtuose seine Ziele erreicht und sich ein Übungsprogramm zusammenstellt.
Das Übungsprogramm unterteilt er darin in einen 10 Stunden/Tag Rhytmus und einen 30 Stunden/Woche Rhytmus.

Ich persönliche ziehe in erster Linie wieder neue Motivation daraus meinen Übungsalltag zu pushen und ihn besser zu Strukturieren.
Die Übungen an sich sind für viele nichts Neues.
Zu empfehlen sind seine Kommentare, die zwar ein bisschen Hippieesk anmuten aber dennoch sehr Motivierend sind.

Das Buch ist eher für ambitionierte Musiker zu empfehlen.
