  • May 16, 2008 Great sampling of Blues Greats

    I liked the selection. Each was short yet complete. Each song was short enough to learn easily and yet gave you a good feel for a particular artist. So instead of needing weeks to learn a certain song, you will be able to learn each song in a few days...
