i think its called "guitar reference guide-scales" and i got the chord one too. its a really good book. it has all of the scale formulas, and about 100 variations on how to play each scale (well not that much but theres more then i ever thought there would be). i havent even put a dent in that book yet.

Back on topic.  On a whim I recently picked up one of those blem Washburn HB15s on fleabay.  Less than $200 with shipping.  Astoundingly good jazz box.  Seriously.  Its a dead knock off of a 1950 Epiphone.  On Harmony Central the concensus is that with a bit of work it goes from being very good to being great.  Bang for the buck quotient is a solid 10.  I haven't had the frets dressed or a refined setup yet, it was pretty darn good right out of the box.  Being old and stodgy, I find that different guitars feel differently and make me play differently.  Having a bona fide old school hollow body jazz box in the arsenal is just great.  More colors and flavors.  Yum.  If you have a local music store with one, check it out.  The gig bag is crap but so what - for another $60 you can get an Ibanez case that fits like a glove.

 The Joe Charupakorn book is great! I didn't know there was a chord version. I'm going to go pick it up. Thanks!
