Good book for beginners in the blues world

Santiago M., 21.10.2009
The Hal Leonard Blues Method is a good book for anyone who already knows the most common chords on the guitar and who want to study the basics of the blues in self-study.

The book can be divided into two parts, the most important chords and the simple Blues accompaniment are presented in the first half. In the second part you learn small solo licks, moveable chord sequences and turnarounds.

You are never overwhelmed, you play old blues classic. Unfortunately, there is no accompanying CD, but in times of the Internet you can quickly find interpretations of well-known artists. The pieces sound good both on the acoustic steelstring and on the electric guitar. A nice bonus is the good discography attached.

Tabulos and notes on classic blues songs

Friedhelm D., 28.10.2009
The BLUES METHOD from HAL LEONARD offer several blues classics and some short texts on blues playing techniques. Tabs to Corinna, Kansas City, Sittin 'on the top of the world, etc., can be very useful, especially if you are not particularly trained in the notes.

The short texts on techniques such as hammer-on, pull-off, etc. are, however, not particularly revealing, the drawings for hand-holding and the techniques often do not help particularly and are sometimes, just as with the bendings, simply wrong. But the price / performance ratio is still good.
