  • May 20, 2004 Riffs with the Reverend

    The Reverend Billy G. Gibbons, ZZ Top's premier guitarist has an awesome library of riffs and licks to learn. Great selection of classic Top tunes. Slowed down versions are included in almost all of the examples, unlike some Signature Licks titles. Earns an intermediate/advanced rating due to some...

    slide work and the fact that Billy uses a lot of pinch harmonics which is something a beginner might find hard to pull off. There's really nothing about this title that I don't like. Most songs contain the verse, chorus, and solo. Buy the Hal Leonard Best of ZZ Top Book as well to get all the songs. "A haw haw haw haw" Have mercy!
