    Review:  A Wonderful Book of Ragtime Music for the Advanced Guitarist. This is an excellent book containing arrangements of ragtime music for guitar from the period of 1915-1930's. I will try to objective in my appraisal of the book.

    Pros: 1) The book has arrangements you probably won't find anywhere else. Obscure songs by Scott Joplin and others are covered. 2) The author breaks down the songs in segments on the cd so that you can practice each section until you master it.

    Cons: 1) The songs are for advanced guitarists. The arrangements are very difficult and will definitely be challenging. 2). The arrangements require the guitarist to utilize the entire neck of the guitar. 3) The movement of positions is rapid. You don't stay in one position for more than 3-4 measures - Big D/Amazon Customer Review
