  • February 26, 2012 A solid boogie study book

    This is a terrific book for developing a good foundation of boogie styles. There are 18 exercises, generally progressing in difficulty, developing riffs and phrases for both the left and right hand. All 18 exercises are in written in the key of C, and for a reason. At the back...

    of the book the basic riffs from all 18 exercises are summarised together, for left hand and right hand. The idea then is for the reader to try mixing combinations of left and right hand riffs from the 18 original exercises. You really need to have mastered the original riff pairs in order to start mixing them. Great exercises, some nice riffs, and mixing the combinations at the end is a real plus. The only improvement I can think of is to add more groups of exercises doing similar exercises in keys like G, E and A, which is handier than C when playing with such as guitarists. Or maybe publish separate versions in a few other keys - I'd but them.
