Product Description

Product Description

This book contains 25 new and original minor blues guitar licks. There are 5 licks for each of the 5 blues scale shapes shown below.

Each lick has a corresponding audio example which is available for free download (no strings attached!) from just click on the ‘downloads’ link. Also included are 3, high quality backing tracks at different speeds to get you playing as soon as possible.

Also in this book there is a great section on how to practice these lines so they naturally incorporate into your playing.

This book came out of a need to develop great blues playing in many of my 40+ weekly private guitar students. Every line in this book has been tried and tested on private students who pay many multiples of the cost of this book. It’s all ‘good stuff’ and every line contained in these pages will teach you something about a different area of the guitar neck whilst teaching you some great lines to play.

Whether you play rock, jazz, or metal, blues is the root of all modern music so a fundamental understanding of its vocabulary is essential.

Joseph Alexander's series of booklets of blues licks are just great value - especially as audio files of the licks and of backing tracks are available.

Anyone beyond the beginner stage will find lots to practice with and to use to develop their own creativity.

The book layout is very clear with excellent guidelines as to how the use the material to the best advantage.
