... you'll like this. I have just finished lesson 2 out of 13. Each lesson has taken me a good while to master and the difficulty has definitely gone up a notch since the last chapter of the preceeding book, with which it shares the same many strenghths and very few weaknesses.

You begin by learning more scales up and down the neck, just like in the first book, but this time playing 3 notes per string and crossing the fret board from 6th to 1st string as you move up. A real strength of the series: you build up good technique... so long as you are prepared to practice hard.

Rhythm and lead tabs for each piece and the first two sound great. Both have slow and fast versions - but the slow versions aren't very. I had to practice piece 2 for hours and hours before I could keep up. I've listend to piece 3 and think the same will apply... Again, advice on fingering and, in piece 2, pick direction would have been welcome... but you can get there on your own. John Ganapes talks for a few seconds on the CD before each piece... fine the 1st time you hear it, irritating the 100th... he should have left this for the book.

Nobody claims this is a beginner's book, but for those who have gone through "Blues you can use" and liked that (and most do) then I think you'll like this too. I worry that it may become too difficult... but I was anxious about that at one stage of "Blues you can use" and still made it to the end. So I think progress through this book will be slow, but, if I last the course, well worth the effort.

There's also a website supporting this series and John Ganapes even replied very constructively to feedback I sent... you really can't ask for much more...

I have been toying with playing Blues guitar for several years without much real progress. This series has bee the most useful that I have come across and at a very reasonable price. I would recommend it to any who want to improve their Blues playing or who like me, find their playing stuck in a rut and are in need of a well presented and comprehensive teaching programme to get them back on track. Just make sure you start with the first part of the series 'Blues You Can Use' before attempting 'More blues You Can Use'.

I haven't completed the lessons in this book yet
but I own 5 books in the series and, as I have stated in other reviews, they are the best
for learning blues that I have found.
Sure, there could be improvements somewhere no doubt, but nothing is perfect.
Persevere with these books and I promise that you will make progress regardless of how good or bad
you may currently be.
If it was easy we would all be guitar gods.
