[Book reviews] Arpeggio's and Tapping techniques
 
Hi all,

I'm searching for a good book to learn arpeggio's, different scales, tapping techniques, with both hands, ...

I saw these:

- Metal Edge: Extreme Tapping Techniques (lick library)
http://www.licklibrary.com/ProductD...%2BMIkT%2FG0%3D
(but there are a few variations of books with the same content ?...)

- GUITAR TAPPING: FROM THE BASICS TO THE HOTTEST LICKS AND TRICKS BK/CD (Guitar Instruction) by Chad Johnson
http://www.amazon.com/GUITAR-TAPPIN...02230963&sr=1-1

- Ultimate guitar techniques: two handed tapping
http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/store...ts+Item-_-Title

- Terrifying Technique for Guitar
http://www.amazon.com/Terrifying-Te...r/dp/0793551641


Anyone experience with these books? Wich one is the best? Or the easiest or with best practice examples etc...

you shouldn't waste your money on those instructional books. learn the theory behind arpeggios and the likes, and you won't need to learn how to incorporate them. and tapping is fairly self-explanatory.

not trying to be an arsehole here, just trying to save you a few bucks.
but if you do want to invest in a book, the Mel Bay Chords Galore is a great introduction to the formation of extended chord voicings, arpeggios, inversions, and the likes. the knowledge in that book will far surpass anything a book with a few tabs and video can. you will know WHY and not just HOW. Hope that makes sense.
