  • February 12, 2009 Not for the Beginner but Useful.

    This is not really a complete 'how to' guide to blues guitar soloing but more a kind of sideways look at the subject. It contains Grissom's personal approach and views and so provokes thought about your own playing. Not for the complete beginner but if you already have some...

    other books on the subject this is a worthwhile addition to your library
