in blues we trust :)
I saw the book in my friends place and borrowed for couple of days, I like it, it explains also some techniques such as where to put the finder and how and so on. Just remember that this book is not someone that who does not play the guitar at all, you should at least know the most common chords at it also mentions in the beginning of the book. They also give the code so you can download audio files of the examples and play-alongs.

Blues solo

I bought Blues Guitar Soloing from Keith Wyatt because I want to focus more on blues solos. Although I own some more guitar schools through blues, they are mostly collections of riffs and licks. They are certainly synonymous useful. The school of Keith Wyatt is of course not around Riff and Lickbeispiele around. However, what makes up the school is a very methodical and didactic construction. You are led through the topics and not thrown into them. It is in my opinion suitable for beginners and advanced. It covers both the technique of playing and the music theory of the blues. Of course, the playing styles of great blues musicians are also discussed. Instruments and devices are treated only briefly.
The examples can be downloaded as * .mp3 files on the Internet. Here I would like to make a small criticism. The file names are unfortunately chosen so that they can not be easily sorted in the order in which they are used in the book from beginning to end. But the filenames can easily be changed in a few minutes. Many examples are designed in such a way that one or more bars are played and with the underlying rhythm they follow the same number of bars without a solo track. So you can replay the pre-played bars directly below.
The school is written in English. If you have learned a few technical terms for your ABI English, then it is relatively fluent to read. The author turns to students and also explains terms in simple paraphrases.
It would be nice if the book also provided some video examples that you can download. This would also be helpful for those who are not very proficient in English.
All in all, I can recommend the school to guitarists who want to train in blues solo playing.
