"This book is a must have for all touch guitarists, whether they live in the progressive music world or just want tips on some great techniques. The score to Trey's part on The ConstruKCtion of Light is, alone, worth the price. (Good golly, I'm still trying to learn all the intricacies of that, and I play it every night!)" – Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Paul Simon)
