      South of France GB I'm just an amateur
      Very interesting piece of knowledge.
      This is really a must have.
      Every song is introduced by a short biograpy or context, and some advices on amp or guitar settings. It covers most of the greatest bluesmen. The proposed solos sound very much alike the original style of the master, but not being a copy.
      All the pieces are on the CD.
      I'm just waiting for volume 2 ...
      it's not a bad point, rather a remark, this book is not for complete beginners.

      No generic blues here, just tasty licks and ideas that really help your playing. With great insights into the differences between players, bios and playing tips, and backing tracks that allow you space to expand and improvise the material.
