Influential books on guitar

Over the years of studying, practicing and teaching guitar I've come across several advanced texts that have been helpful to myself as well as some of my students.  I thought it might be useful to compile a list of some of these:

  • "The Advancing Guitarist" -Mick Goodrick
  • "Sight Reading for the Contemporary Guitarist" -Tom Bruner
  • "Approaching the Guitar" -Gene Bertoncini
