    I teach my students 12-bar blues before boogie or jazz, and this is my foundational book for blues (after working basic theory structure with them). Filled with patterns on which to improvise. Some of the first ones have a LH pattern of ////, but later ones have more variety. Fun...

    just to sit down and use patterns as a jumping-off place for recreational improv. Need an understanding of 12-bar blues structure in order to know what you're doing, however. Not to be confused with other "jazz Hanons." Alfasy's is the first and best.

    I love this blues hanon book. It gives me the experience with the blues rhythmns in short exercises so I don't feel overwhelmed.
