4.0 out of 5 stars Good Blues Book 8 April 2011
By smashn1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
If you're a blues lover, you'll really like this book. Especially if you know chords and enjoy playing from fake books, not full staff. You won't find 70s and 80s blues rock originals (like Allman Brothers or Rolling Stones originals), but you'll be pleased with the collection of standards from the 30s through the 60s (Muddy Waters, B.B. King, etc).

I also love the fact this book includes a lot of Robert Johnson classics -- Statesboro, Love in Vain Blues, and many more.

In short, money well spent!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but could be better... 27 Jun 2012
By C. Candy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Plastic Comb
I don't own this, but I was in a big B&N the other day and spent about 10 minutes thumbing through it. Chords, lyrics and melodies seem pretty well done. But a lot of the tunes are missing those signature licks that can really distinguish one blues song from another. The Real Rock book was also in the store and it is much, much better - in fact I just ordered it from Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars C Instruments does not equal key of C 2 Feb 2014
By John T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
I play piano and enjoy blue grass. Lot's of songs where, most new to me (I'm a beginner in BlueGrass so they may be old standards), and not duplicated in my few other BG books.

The main issue was my misunderstanding that the songs would not be in the key of C - most are 4 and 5 sharps, causing me to stretch my skills. I thought 'C Instruments' meant key of C, but that's not true.
4.0 out of 5 stars A very good investment 7 Nov 2013
By R. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
Being a former Reedman, I'm very familiar with the Real Book format. The Real Blues Book has most of the traditional Blues Songs that I've enjoyed hearing and performing. It's print is clear and the chord progressions are accurate and easy to read. This allows me to play the songs on flute or keyboard with accuracy. That internalization allows my accompanying and soloing on drums and percussions to be more articulate and melodic. For the traditional Blues lover, this is a must have. However, It doesn't include the lyrics to the songs. Otherwise, I'd give it five stars.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the other Real Books 8 Oct 2013
By Joanne I. Knauer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Plastic Comb|Verified Purchase
This book have a wonderful collection of classic blues songs. My only complaint is not having some more examples of Robert Johnson songs, as well as a few other missing songs by other newer artist.
