This book/2-CD set has been designed to help the guitarist with soloing studies. These 36 play-along rhythm tracks embody the electrifying feel of the West Coast Blues and provide you with the ability to place new licks and soloing concepts into context. They include slow blues, fast blues, jazzy blues, rumbas, songs with breaks, swings, marches, minor blues, boogies, and many more. A practice section is included featuring nine Play-Along Trax that start at a tempo of 40 beats per minute and go to 200 for progressive lick study. This is a great tool to help you master any lick or song that is too difficult to play at its original speed. The remaining backup tracks are arranged by key, single guitar or band, and tempo. Most of the examples will use the standard 12-bar blues format, while a few use common variations such as 16-bar blues. The book provides the chord progressions plus instruction on how to use the CDs to practice listening and breaks.
