King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, and many others. Lessons include 12-bar blues, chords, scales, licks, vibrato and string bending, riffs, turnarounds, boogie patterns, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, standard notation and tablature, and much more! Songs include "Boom Boom," "Born Under a Bad Sign," "Double Trouble," "Killing Floor," "Sweet Home Chicago," "You Shook Me," and more.

Comments about Hal Leonard Guitar Method - Blues Guitar Book/CD:
Great book on the history of the early blues works of Robert Johnson and others like B.B. King. Also has some Claptonish riffs. It has some great old tunes like Sweet Hom Chicago and others. It will help with lead playing in the E Blues scale but doesn't go into great detail for lead. It has a lot of Blues riffs and turn arounds. It will definately get your fingers moving and give you confidence in your playing.
