The Subversive Guitarist is for any intermediate or advanced player who feels like they are stuck in a rut. If you’ve ever thought, “I always play the same things whenever I pick up a guitar,” this is your remedy.

The book purchase includes audio downloads for the hundreds of musical examples and links to relevant videos.
