I'm not actually 13, I just don't remember my password. Wolf Marshall has done a fabulous job in recreating the music of Albert King - just about every note is dead on. However, he transcribes all of Albert's licks in the 3rd pentatonic position (instead of the home position), and he does seem to have good reasoning for it: 1) King used a wound g-string, so this position better duplicates that sound on a normal guitar (with and unwound g-string). 2) King tuned down 1 and a half steps (3 frets), so he could quite easily bend and pre-bend the high e string up to 2 full steps (4 frets). On a normal guitar, it is extremely difficult to do this and usually you won't even get the full bend before you break your e string. These are good reasons, but the licks transcribed in this position are almost useless for playing anything outside of Albert's style. You cannot play fast with the transcribed positions (which Marshall backs up by saying that Albert doesn't play extremely fast anyways). Other than the 2-step bends, these licks are best played in the home position. So if you want to learn Albert King's licks and not be able to apply them to any other blues playing, I would recommend this book. Also, if you don't mind re-transcribing the licks to the pentatonic home position, this book may also be a worthwile purchase (considering that the notes themselves are correct). This is what I am doing now. What I have started to do with these licks is: when I need to do the huge bends, I just go back up to the 3rd position; otherwise, I stay in first. If this is not a hassle to you, buy this book. Otherwise, stay away.
