Beginning to build a repertoire of songs that you can play comfortably is the first important step in getting started in the Country Blues. But once you've got that repertoire-building process started, it can be enormously helpful to become acquainted with the Blues in a more general, less song-specific way, learning the various stylistic pathways that enable experienced blues players who have never met or played together before to sit down and make music together. When you see that happen, it seems like magic, but it's really just a matter of their knowing and understanding the language of the blues.
Over 140 authentic riffs and licks as played by bluesmasters such as Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Eric Clapton, Albert Collins, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more! Each is presented in two-measure chunks, organized by where they fall within a standard 12-bar blues progression.
