This is a fantastic book for those wanting to learn blues piano from the very start. It is easy to follow and the riffs are excellent being interchangeable. After a short while you will be vamping away. Make no mistake though, practice makes perfect. A strong left hand is essential and needs working on. But if you like teh blues, this hsould not prove a problem. It will be some time before I am able to move onto the next book, but I am sure enjoying this one. And all the exercising being in the key of C makes things that much easier.
