    What I like most about 2000 Blues Guitar is its diversity. I play fingerstyle, 2000 Blues, will introduce you to all styles, genres, from delta blues to swing blues to jazz blues. Take your pick. The 2 cd's accompany the book nicely, allowing you to learn at your own...

    pace. I would have given the book five stars if it weren't for some interesting omissions. One is, they obviously pay homage to one of the greatest ragtime blues artist in history "W.C. Handy", but his music is not included on the cd. This is true of two other artist who's music is in the book but not on the cd. Also some tab is not included with some of the songs. Again, these points are minor compared to the overall makeup of 2000 Blues Guitar. If you decide to purchase the book you will not be left wanting. It provides a lot of bang for the buck.
