    Wolfe Marshall reproduces the sounds of BB King note perfect. The instruction is clear and concise as we have become accustomed to with this publisher. As with other titles by this publisher I would like to see the entire piece with lyrics to round the exercise off.

    I have no idea how Wolf can play so many styles so easily, this is another quality book, the only missing thing is slow demos but the songs are easy enough, must have if you like the blues/jazz and rock all in one.
