    More than any other blues theory or technique book, this blues bible really took my playing up two or three notches. Not only do you get the licks and riffs, but the theory behind them, technique tips, a brief note on the specific blues musician that embodies the style of the bit, and a CD so you can hear exactly how it’s supposed to sound – the timing, sycopation, etc. It’s been a TON of fun to go through this book and work on each lick – studying the theory, getting the picking just right. Plus, it’s just a beautiful book – great pictures and the paper has a good feel. If you play guitar, and play the blues, this should be a required purchase.

    I own several “blues” guitar books. But I have to say that this book is the book that I’ve had the most fun going through. Each page has a different lick, it tells the background of the lick, who originated the lick, what type of blues it is commonly used in, and also little tips to watch out for like which strings to dampen or to let ring. I’ll pick one each day, work through it slowly to get the finger memory down, and within an hour, I’m making that lick sing. Then as I’m soloing during a blues progression, those licks come to mind and I will throw them in. It has a great CD that comes with it so you can see how the lick is supposed to sound. The most FUN blues lick book I have ever owned. Get a copy now !!!!!

    I think I appreciate the book itself more than the guitar licks. I haven’t played through all the licks yet because there are so many of them, but those that I have worked through are good. They aren’t amazing, but they are decent to good. I prefer the licks from “Blues by the Bar” and “Blues Licks You can Use” over these so far. But again, I haven’t tried them all. There are definitely some good ones and there are licks that are from every possible style so the variety is awesome. The book itself is beautiful and laid out well. The pictures, colors, organization, etc. is the best I have seen. The spiral binding is also nice. The included CD is great as well.
