Comments about Hal Leonard Rockin' Blues Licks Learn from the Blues Greats Themselves Book/CD:
"Scale-itis" is the enemy of any aspiring guitarist, that point were you realize you are playing the same licks over the same scale yadda yadda. This book is fantastic at dispelling this! The licks are medium to hard difficulty (tempo more than fingering) and vary widely in tone and content. They are set up from bars 1- 12 to give some good "seeds" to start branching off of with your own variations. I would recommend this to anyone. Expand your box!
