I'm currently using the Modern Method For Guitar Vol. 1 by William Leavitt to improve my sight reading and some of the Troy Stetina books (which seem excessively easy to me) just to recap some of my technique. I'm self-taught you see so I just want to make sure what I'm doing is right. Basically I just want to know how to make the most of these books. I've heard from before that you shouldn't memorise the Modern Method For Guitar books as that would eliminate the need for sight reading so how should I go about with this then? Same with the Troy Stetina books... To be honest the licks and songs in the Stetina books are much too basic for me (I've been playing guitar intensively for nearly 5 years now) and I'm only really interested in correcting minor details about my technique. Any help is much appreciated, Sid.
