  • March 28, 2003 Worth a second look

    This is the only book that I have seen on John Lee Hooker material. But it does the job well. It shows open tunings and all the main riffs. A big part of Hooker (of course) is the groove, the beat, and improv. A negative comment is that it shows...

    him tuning standard up to "F" pitch on some songs. It is much better to tune standard and put a capo on the first fret (as in the song "Boom Boom"). In "Bottle Up and Go" the recording I have is in Bb, so this song it is best to tune to Open G and capo III. I wish the book had "Boogie Chillen" but this is Open G capo IV and you will be able to find the riffs. And the book does teach "One bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer which I was having trouble getting started with but can now play. John Lee Hooker is well worth the effort and this book at least gave me the keys to start paying his stuff. I am glad I bought this book.
