    You quote Philip Hii.

    Have you seen his “Art of Virtuosity for Guitar” and “Art of Virtuosity”?
    I have not, and wonder what it’s all about.

      Actually, the quote is from that book. It’s quite good, but not for beginners. I haven’t looked at his “Art of Virtuosity for Guitar,” though. The “Art of Virtuosity” is more philosophical, and goes into some basic things behind being a virtuoso.
