Intermediate topics include hammer-ons, pull-offs, cross picking, rolls, and more. The book concludes with advanced concepts like advanced harmonies, 12-bar blues, rhythm changes, chord-melody playing, modes, improvisation, and much more.

An MP3 CD with demonstrations of the examples in the book is included.
