All the pieces are included on the accompanying CD which also features some "play-along" tracks.
All styles of blues are covered from Boogie Woogie, Chicago and New Orleans, to Swing, Funk, Gospel and Jazz.
Each chapter focuses on a particular type of chord, beginning with major triads, and ending with 9th, 13th, and diminished chords, presented in a logical and easy to follow to fashion.
The book also contains 20 full page photos of blues pianists from Jimmy Yancey to Dr John, and a comprehensive discography.
