    Great Book for Teacher or Student

    By GuitarJim

    from Arlington, TX

    Pros

    • Great Blues Book

    Cons

    • Would Like More Lead Info

    Best Uses

      Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method - Blues Guitar Book/CD:

      Great book on the history of the early blues works of Robert Johnson and others like B.B. King. Also has some Claptonish riffs. It has some great old tunes like Sweet Hom Chicago and others. It will help with lead playing in the E Blues scale but doesn't go into great detail for lead. It has a lot of Blues riffs and turn arounds. It will definately get your fingers moving and give you confidence in your playing.

      Get the Blues

      By the81charge

      from Columbus, OH

      Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method - Blues Guitar Book/CD:

      I picked up this book and while the licks are pretty basic it really drives home the elements of blues. I had a great time listening and playing along to the cd, but that might just be the way I learn. Get the blues. Get this book.

      A good beginner's overview

      By Gettinbetter

      from near Chicago

      Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method - Blues Guitar Book/CD:

      Hal Leonard Guitar Method - Blues Guitar Book/CD is a good basic overview for the aspiring blues guitarist. I've had this book for two years, and come back to it from time to time. The book is fairlr informative, the cd tracks are=fun to play along with, and there are some ok arrangements of blues standards. This is a good starting point, but you'll want to go elsewhere for an in-depth study.

      Too small

      By Squintsquint

      from Farmington CT

      Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method - Blues Guitar Book/CD:

      The 6x9 size of this book is awful. I would need a magnifying glass to read the music if the page was further than 6 inches from my face.Content and CD are great, but save your money for this book's big brother at 9"x12".Hope I can exchange it, cause I can't return it.
