Blues Guitar for Adults (The Grown-Up Approach to Playing Blues Guitar). Composed by Wayne Riker. For Guitar. Book; CD; Guitar Method or Supplement; Method/Instruction. Blues. 96 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.40178).

ISBN 0739092871. Blues.

This fun and friendly step-by-step introduction to blues guitar is written with the adult learner in mind. It is both a great self-teaching book and a great method for use with an instructor. Blues Guitar for Adults covers scales and techniques for blues lead guitar, important blues forms---such as the 12-bar and 8-bar blues progressions---and even provides licks in the style of the most important blues guitar masters. Easy-to-read examples are written in standard music notation and TAB, and there’s a special section at the end showing all the scales and arpeggios you need to play the blues. Large diagrams and detailed photographs help simplify the learning process. A CD demonstrating all the examples in the book is included, making learning easier and more fun. This is the perfect "how to" book for the grown-up who wants to play the blues!
