The Hal Leonard Blues Guitar Method is your complete guide to learning blues guitar. This book uses real blues songs – no corny arrangments of nursery rhymes here! (well, except "Mary Had a Little Lamb,” but this is NOT the version you learned in kindergarten!) – to teach you the basics of rhythm and lead blues guitar in the style of B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, and many others. Lessons include: 12-bar blues; chords, scales and licks; vibrato and string bending; riffs, turnarounds, and boogie patterns; hammer-ons, pull-offs, and 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. The online audio includes over 70 tracks for demo and play-along, and is available using the unique code printed inside each book.
