The Total Latin Guitarist is an exciting journey into the world of Latin guitar playing.

Other Latin styles featured are meringue (Dominican Republic); calypso, soca, and bachata (Trinidad); tango (Argentina); and ranchera, mariachi, norteño/conjunto, and tejano (Mexico). The included CD features a full band demonstrating the examples in the book.
