  • August 10, 2012 Best Blues Songbook Ever

    One hundred ten of the most popular blues tunes in lead sheet format for under $8. And in a well printed and organized book small enough to carry in a guitar case or gig bag. It doesn't get any better than that! Just what I have been looking for...

    . Hal Leonard, you did it again.

    Every morning, I listen to "Breakfast with the Blues" (KRVM.org) to start my day on a boogie beat. This book provides verses and simple melody notation of many classic blues tunes that I translate into banjo tablature. I love the clawhammer blues sound and found this book a solid...

  • January 17, 2008 Wang Dang Doodle

    Awesome eclectic little guide to about 100 blues tunes. All authors properly acknowledged. Accurate lyrics and melodies. Cost next to nothing and, best of all, fits in a guitar case. If Robert Johnson had this he may have cut a few more albums...
