1.0 out of 5 stars Much too Difficult to Learn from 15 Jan 2013
By olly
This book gives some helpful start-up hints, then it's straight into difficult Robert Johnson pieces, totally unsuited to anyone new to slide guitar. The music on the CD is played at high tempo so it is impossible to follow note-by-note. No slowed up licks are included. A DVD would have been preferable to a CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good place to start 9 Nov 2003
By Norman Perry - Published on Amazon.com
I'm an intermediate player who bought 3 books to learn slide from.
This is the best of the bunch. The book covers a lot of ground but
the basics are here as well. Well spaced info and a good CD to
learn from. Other good books on blues (but not slide per se) are the Kenny Sultan series - they are not as hard as the Grossman and Mann books

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the $ 13 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I'm a metal guitarist (the real stuff, Maiden, Morbid Angel, Slayer style metal) that dabbles in jazz and fingerstyle.
I've loved Robert Johnson's country style blues forever and this book introduced me to the joys of playing slide guitar in open G in just two days! I can already play enough stuff to sound like I know what I'm doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virtuoso slide instruction 22 Aug 2000
By J. Bays - Published on Amazon.com
Bob Brozman, in addition to being a certified ethnomusicologist and world expert on the National resonator guitar has compiled a mother lode of slide and rhythm techniques in the Country Blues style.Although at his own admission Brozman doesn't "play Robert Johnson like Robert Johnson.." in recordings or live venues he does easily teach the style of Johnson flawlessly in rhythm, phrase and slide technique. In addition he quotes and instructs from the other Country Blues giants..Charlie Patton, Willie Brown as well as including his own trademark licks. The rhythmic instruction included is essential learning for this style. Included CD is excellent in detail and example. A must have for anyone interested in this style

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Bottleneck Blues Guitar 28 Feb 2010
By JPfromOH - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bob Brozman is an expert on bottleneck blues guitar, and in his own research and playing has focused on the resonator guitar. This book finds Brozman focused on his customary DGDGBD, low open G, tuning. There is a wealth of material here, although the book is not necessarily as comprehensive pedagogically as it could be. Many of the Mel Bay and Alfred blues guitar method books seem to progress at a somewhat uneven pace. What tends to happen is that a logical, step-by-step progression is interrupted by a leap into more complicated techniques. Bob Brozman is little more evenly paced than some authors, but there are some technical leaps as one progresses through the book. What really helps is the accompanying CD, on which Brozman demonstrates the examples and provides spoken introductions and notes on the techniques. His approach on the CD tends to sound conversational enough that one gets the sense that they are in the room with a resonator bottleneck teacher. It's not as slick a recording as it could be, but that's the beauty of it, and why it feels like Brozman is talking directly to you, his student. If you are looking for a collection of acoustic blues transcriptions, this is not the place to look. Brozman does include his transcriptions and versions of some acoustic blues classics, but the main focus is on building up technique and musicality so that the player has enough tools to construct his or her own version of acoustic blues guitar pieces. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!
