The book is more of a compilation of different author's tips and tricks on playing blues guitar than it is a systematic outlay of blues guitar music theory. I mention this only because I thought it would be more of the latter from the excerpt of the book I saw on line. A question I had was whether the audio materials on line were going to be available buying a used book. The answer was, thankfully, yes, so I was pleased with that fact, but working the website did require a phone call to the company to download the materials. The book is definitely put together by a group of musicians who know their stuff, and the materials range from basic to advanced, so if an eclectic array of tools and techniques is what you are looking for, it's here in the book.

This book instructs through the use of short example licks from famous licks. There is a diverse set of licks to inspire creative playing. The book also demonstrates the use of the blues scales and turn arounds, and that is just the first quarter or so of the book. It is a valuable resource to pull from to learn some blues. The only drawback I would site is that it is not as cohesive from one section to the next, I believe because it is a compiled set of magazine articles.

At any rate I borrowed this from the local library and then ended up purchasing it pb amazon because I liked it and am interested in improving my blues chops. I would recomend it to the late beginner to intermediate just starting in the blues or wanting some licks and explanation for the more experienced player.

As others stated, it's a collection of articles, not a comprehensive how to play the blues book. OK addition to my library, but would not order again.

This is an excellent reference and I have been learning a great deal from it. The only problem is the age since it was published in 2004. I am hoping I will find the sound samples of the lessons for examples still online. I do best with visual and auditory instruction, though the written explanation gives the complete picture. Best part of this book-- the guitar and gear suggestions of the great blues guitarists... really a fun and accurate reference!

I guess so I sure dont remember using it except maybe once when i got unimpressed You can do better on You tube for free
The blues, on the surface, is deceptively simple. This is particularly noticeable if you look at the tab for, say, your average BB King lick.
But... the nuance, the bends, pre-bends and all the rest can make those four or five notes unique and sometimes even hard to duplicate.
So, for beginners, despite the simplicity of the basic licks, understanding the tab's notational symbols will truly make-or-break your success with this book. Also, this book only really covers small parts of your soloing - if you don't know what a turnaround is, this book is one notch higher than you are.
That said; the folks at guitar player have put together a good group of bluesmen to emulate and discuss however, being a 'lesson and tips'
kind of book, everything is short and not covered in much detail.
Still, if you can tighten-up a flabby solo, this book can be worth alot more than its cover price!
