The Hal Leonard Blues Guitar Method is your complete guide to learning blues guitar. This book uses real blues songs - no corny arrangments of nursery rhymes here! (well, except "Mary Had a Little Lamb," but this is NOT the version you learned in kindergarten!) - to teach you the basics of rhythm and lead blues guitar in the style of B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, and many others. Lessons include 12-bar blues, chords, scales, licks, vibrato and string bending, riffs, turnarounds, boogie patterns, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, standard notation and tablature, and much more! Songs include "Boom Boom," "Born Under a Bad Sign," "Double Trouble," "Killing Floor," "Sweet Home Chicago," "You Shook Me," and more.
