Comments about Hal Leonard Bluegrass Guitar - 10 Solo Classics For Flatpicking and Fingerstyle (Book/CD):
I bought this book because it contains transcriptions of 10 tunes performed by Wayne Henderson. I read somewhere that Wayne is to guitar what Stradivarius and Paganini were to the violin.In other words,he builds the best guitars ever made and he plays some of the best guitar ever heard. The CD that accompanies this book prooves that idea to be preposterous. The guitar he plays sounds ordinary and the music, while fast and intricate, isn't any better than Doc Watson or Tony Rice etc. The book is described as having both fingerpicking and flatpicking versions of the ten songs. This is not true. There is only one version and the editor explains that you can play the mostly single note lines either with a pick or with your idex finger and thumb. My final complaint is that the songs appear on the CD in a different order than they do in the book, You have to be careful to sync them or you'll be listening to one tune while trying to play the tab of another.Having said all this negative stuff, I would still recomend the book to anyone wanting to learn some really challenging material in the bluegrass style.
