This book is meant to take an instrument and musical style and teach it to the people who made it so popular, the blues listening public. A comprehensive lesson and study book for the intermediate and advanced diatonic harmonica player, Classic Chicago Blues Harp presents techniques, progressive examples and accompanying twelve bar blues exercise and examples. Special attention is given to the accurate reading of blues rhythms and each notated tune is carefully marked with tablature indicating precisely where to find individual notes. Each chapter concludes with a chapter review of what was taught in that section. This book is best suited to the intermediate player rather than the beginner, and will appeal strongly to those with a genuine desire to learn the Chicago blues harmonica style. The book is excellent for self-teaching, yet is comprehensive enough to be used in a private instruction format. The included CD recording insures accuracy of interpretation and ease in learning. Most of the exercises and examples are included on the CD with split-tracked back-up music. Each song is played once with harmonica and then without. A great all-around study book for blues harmonica players at any level.

    A great all-around study book for blues harmonica players at any level. It is the best self teaching book for Chicago blues I have had so far. Of course you have to be at least intermediate player on mouth harmonica, it is not for beginers.

    series starts you out with the basics of 12 bar blues and takes you on an overview of all the positions, in detail with the different books, and licks for incorporation with jamming. cd helps a lot
