Tracing the history of blues guitar from Robert Johnson through Eric Clapton, John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green and many more, Neville Marten explains each player's definitive playing techniques, showing how to emulate their solos and develop their tricks to expand your own musical vocabulary. Playing styles, personal trademarks and characteristics are explained and illustrated clearly in notation and tab, as well as played in full on the CD. The CD includes two licks from each player, a solo using those licks and finally a jam track which you can play along with, eventually creating your own solo. A short biography of each player assesses their historical position in the genre's development, while the musical traditions from generation are examined.
