2000 Blues Licks That Rock!

By Lawrence Fritts

Guitar. Blues Instruction, Technique. Softcover with CD. 420 pages. Published by Centerstream Publications (HL.109377).

Item Number: HL.109377

ISBN 9781574242850. 9x12 inches.

The 2,000 licks in this book are organized into 36 chapters. These chapters explore the different pitches, rhythms, techniques, and methods of phrasing found in blues and blues-influenced guitar solos and fills. Use these licks to deliver heavy, yet ear-catching riffs. These can be played along with the 43 backing tracks included on the 3 CDs that come with this book. They are all written in the key of a C blues, while the backing tracks are played in the keys of E, A, D, G, C, F, and Bb. A handy table is included that shows how to transpose up or down from C to other blues keys. The backing tracks (performed by a live band in a studio) are all in the 12-bar blues form, but the licks do not necessarily have to be played over specific chords in the progression.

  • August 26, 2018 Good idea, bad implementation

    It seem the authors were into Filed of dreams... "If we build it they will come" .. It features a lot of good sheet music with tabs and lots of good jam tracks.. BUT the CD tracks are in all keys, the sheet music is all in Key of C thus...

    to play along with CD tracks transpose! which is quite cumbersome whhe you are trying to learn the music presented in tabs, Itis if a sheet music book was created with no thought to CD's. Separate creations thrown in to sell a "package."
