After abandoning every other guitar book because they didn't show me what I wanted to learn, I started to teach myself a quick and dirty method of chord-melody by practicing all the triad inversions and then trying to play stuff from the realbook without voice leading considerations, just fingering the triad with the melody note on top.

Then I found online a book ('Fretboard harmony') that seems to follow the same basis. After a theory section which I liked very much, it goes on with a lot of studies on the inversions on the various sets of strings. Both parts resonated very much with the way I imagined learning the guitar. I did some research about the author, Eddie Lang (yes, I hadn't even ever heard of the father of jazz guitar. shame on me), and began listening to his recordings.

But when I looked for informations about the method I could find nothing. Amazon doesn't carry it, there are no reviews on the forums, it's only available in ebook format on some sites.

So I was wondering if any of you guys has any experience with this method or knows anything about it, especially what is the part that Lang played into its creation (sometimes, it seems that the real author is Dave Berend, credited as the editor).
