  • 2012-01-09 00:00:00.0 Complete Country Blues Guitar Book/2-CD Set

    This is a wonderful source book full of generous ideas about playing acoustic blues and rags. A tried and long standing method of writing tabs that are clear and easy to follow. A method that enables you to develop your own response to what is on the page through translating...

    it up and in to a full song using the tab as a fundamental foundation and guide towards your own expression. The CD's are just another layer of cream on top of this well baked cake.

  • 2007-03-30 00:00:00.0 This book was my teacher

    My personal bible. These carefully explained lessons guided me line by line, song by song, till a level I had never dreamed of. The writer really put it all there, knowing exactly all the challenges beginners have to face to become intermediate (if I can be called that!). No abrupt...

    increases of level, no surprises. Each song a delightful present for your hands, covering almost every style I know of. John Hurt to Son House, Bukka White, Leadbelly and more... are waiting there for you. (I SWEAR I'm not the writer, just a thankful buyer that has bought this for a few friends since I first had it.)

    Difficulty Level:
  • 2005-09-01 00:00:00.0 His DVDs then this book

    This is a really nice book with lots of old songs that I might be able to attempt at some later date. I've seen clips from his DVDs and I think I need to see how to fingerpick before I could understand the descriptions of what to do in...

    this book. His instructions are for how to play each song, not general exercises for beginners. The CDs that come with it are really great and can be listened to on their own. If you are an intermediate fingerpicker this would probably rate 5 stars.
