" Progressive Blues Guitar Licks" review by Michael Elliano  Mar 10, 2008
This is a good book to purchase with Progressive Blues lead guitar. I found it helpful and fun to play. The two books really should be merged into one big book but the price is so reasonable that I say don't even think about it. Buy them both, play them and hear yourself improve. Progressive books are always good guitar books. This is one of the better ones.
not better than i expected  Jan 11, 2007
Good for beginners ** From easy to hard licks ** Hard to find the exercise on the cd but sound quality good ** Would have been better if there were slow-records too ** If beginner at Blues guitar,one should think about this book..
Lots of good material  Mar 19, 2005
I have several of the books from this series, and this may be the best of the lot. There are plenty of licks in this book that made my ears perk up, and I thought, "Yes...I definitely need to learn that one. That's cool."

One might make criticisms of this book like, it presents all of these licks out of context, and it would be nice to have someone walk you through some ways to string them together effectively. But you won't hear such criticism from me. Considering the low price I paid for the book, I'd say the value is very high. If I can pick up just five or six licks that find their way into my playing, it's worth it.

And I got more than five or six licks from this book.
Above average but could be improved (3.5*)  Nov 30, 2002
I bought this book as the local store where I take lessons because they carry the range and this one seemed the best of the bunch for where I am currently. The licks are quite good. The CD is good, although several licks (usually 4) are batched together in each track -- the advantage of this is that it keeps the number of tracks reasonably low but the disadvantage is that you really need to be ready to practice all 4 licks in rapid succession.

The book is typical of many tutorials that have been available for several years, although with above average formating, clarity and print quality. I found it a tad uninspiring -- I prefer more context/background/hints/insights -- although there are a few interesting and unusual snippets. My teacher was less inpired (probably because he can pick licks off of any CD I present him with) and was reluctant to work from this sort of book. I have quite a few guitar books -- so I may be a little jaded on this, and if this is your main book I suspect it will provide good service. The licks I have tried in this book seem quite good, re-usuable and the approach seems solid. Although switching key when establishing licks for a certain scale position seemed counter productive to me -- I would have prefered to stick in one key initially to make the patterns solid.

The Tablature Symbols section is unusally clear and useful (e.g. good description of tremolo picking -- something I had come across before but my teacher hadn't!). Decent scale diagrams for minor pentatonic and blues scales (CAGED) although I much prefer the more complete and better formatted scales in "Essential Blues Guitar" by Celenato (which I highly recommend).

I still don't understand the sections on 6ths and 3rd and Dominant 7th Arpeggios (and I am quite bright - no really!) -- no context or explanation is given. I found the explanation of Call & Response lacking -- but I have yet to find a book that covers this adequately.

At the end of the day you are probably better off getting a few lessons, listening to a lot of CDs and picking up licks from your favorite tunes (I know, easier said than done but this is what all the greats had to do and it will save you money and train your ear, which is priceless).

In conclusion, a respectable book, above average of its type and reasonably priced. I prefer a similar but more interesting book called "Blues Essentials Guitar" and would recommend getting that one first.

Excellence and generosity  Jan 2, 2002
After years of just mucking around with guitar, and going through a few tutorial books on blues guitar, it was wonderful to come across Peter Gelling's books. I've been using his Blues Guitar Licks book for a few months now, and try out the licks with some mates who have a jam at my place each week. Peter's book is better than any others I've tried, as it puts the licks into a context. There's a real generosity of spirit in his work - he wants people to learn to improve their playing, not just make money from selling books. I won't mention names, but I had one very disappointing experience with a blues lick book by another writer/musician. It was just a series of licks - almost meaningless without the context of rhythmic backing and interplay with other instruments. Gelling's work combines generosity with his personal mastery of the blues guitar. Highly recommended by one who feels his playing has improved a lot.
