Book with online audio. Using his vast knowledge of the genre Woody Mann has written a selection of original pieces based on the playing styles of the early masters. The approach is to learn blues guitar by playing blues guitar. Each tune is a clear and playable example of a particular style, artist or recording - a cross section of styles that illustrate playing techniques in most of the keys and tunings. These 51 instrumentals, ranging from basics to more complicated, cover a wide spectrum of sounds and styles - from the syncopated sounds of ragtime blues to the open-tuning approaches of Mississippi Delta to the folk sounds of the Carolinas.
