Comments about Alfred Mastering Blues Guitar Book/CD:
I really enjoyed this book, Alfred Mastering Blues. It is basically the combination of a couple of other Alfred blues instruction books. It gives you plenty of great instruction on basic Blues rhythms and does a great job of imparting the bouncy "feel" of the Blues. The accompanying CD is good enough for me to play in the car and enjoy. I just wish I knew the type of gear they were using on some of the recordings because the tone was excellent. You also get instruction on all the basic blues techniques such as bends, vibrato, and slides. There is also some theory on different scales and how to use them in performing solos. I love this book/CD set.
