I received this from a friend, along wih a couple of the other "It's Easy to Bluff" series. I play guitar for fun and have only a cursory interest in Blues. Joe Bennett does a great job of being informative, but he's never patronising and his style is very relaxed - something that this book shares with the others in the series which I've seen. Myself and some friends frequently get together with some 6-strings and they all find this book very accesible. There's enough humour to keep you chuckling but the book is never corny - there's a great balance between having a laugh and "proper" musical instruction. Having said that, I've been encouraged enough by the book to take the lessons given fairly serously. The book's format means that the printed music parts are easily read and understood and Joe Bennett's tips on playing style and "feel" are immediately understandable. Bennett obviously knows what he's talking about and the pointers he gives throughout to particular styles and techniques are both authoritive and descriptive. I would imagine that even if you didn't play Blues guitar, you'd like to have a copy - its fun, full of interesting facts, and there's just enough in there to point a player (particularly a beginner) towards more serious interest in this kind of music. All in all, a good tome to have in the collection - great job Joe Bennett, and great job Music Sales - I haven't seen anything quite as good. Any more in the pipeline, folks?
