            Great Book - You need this book to understand the precision with which Rocco plays Okay no-one will get near to being as good as he is (unless you lock into these grooves for as many years as Rocco as) but the side effect is that you learn about how to push your own playing to integrate some of Rocco's brilliance on the instrument
