Over 60 pieces, including many original compositions by the author, together with new arrangements of well-known standarts such as 'Ain't No Sunshine', 'Blueberry Hill', 'Blue Monk', 'Got My Mojo workin', 'Honky Tonk Train Blues', 'How Long Blues', 'Just a Closer Walk with Thee', 'Pine Top's Boogie Woogie', 'St Louis Blues' etc.• Authentic left-hand patterns and bass lines• Professional chord voicings, blues scales, licks and riffs• Co-ordination exercises for both hands• Suggested listeningEach chapter is graded within itself, providing some challenging pieces towards the end.

Explains Tim Richards' approach to playing in easy to understand bites and therefore excellent for beginners to get started. A good scheme for launching however the real secret of playing anything is practice practice. The book lays out definite instructions of how to start the said practice.
