    Contains both introductory and more advanced material in the blues/swing style. Don't underestimate the difficulty but if you've truly mastered the basics of technique and enjoy the genre then this contains some refreshing additions to your repertoire. The accompanying CD is a real help and the pieces...

    themselves are skilfully composed, with plenty to keep your attention. Bottom line: well worth the effort.

    Excellent book + very helpful CD,I recommend it strongly for teacing first steps of blues; some basic knowledge of playing classical guitar is required, though.
