If you like this you will love....  Aug 7, 2005
I've found that you've got to buy at least 5 or 6 of these blues courses before you find one that meets you where you are and improves your skill level while holding your attention. This book did a pretty good job of improving my skill level but the licks were dry. However, it is well worth the price. If you like this book you will love "Blues you can use" by John Ganapes
but that one is slightly more advanced in my opinion.
My favorite book/value purchase so far.  Nov 6, 2002
As someone who is trying to learn guitar at the age of 37, I want to just have some fun. This book does that, as it has you building a 12 bar blues solo for each pattern. HINT: Just practice going up and down each pattern very well before tackling each set of licks. Highly recommend! Oh yeah the included CD to hear everything is priceless.
Deep Intermediate Blues (and Rock) Instruction  Oct 22, 2002
Peter Gelling continues on from "Blues Lead Guitar Method". He gives you the basic blues scales with the blue notes added. He teaches a song with each scale (which helps to commit the scale to memory). He also covers arpeggios, and various rhythms. The book introduces a few new techniques along with some really good signiture licks from blues masters. The book takes a little work, but it is fun an will improve your style.
Superb starting point  Jun 1, 2001
If you have some knowledge of the guitar, you can play the chords, you're learning your scales, but you don't know where to get started with playing lead--this book is probably the best place to start I know of. You start out learning some very simple little licks, and then after you've learned a few, you find them strung together into a 12-bar blues--and suddenly, miraculously, for maybe 20 seconds, you find that you can actually play lead guitar! How cool is that? (All examples are played fast, then slow, like REALLY slow.)

As the book progresses, the leads get more complex, and therefore more difficult to learn. But there is nothing here that is of the advanced caliber. I don't mean that as a criticism--this stuff SHOULD be aimed at the beginner to intermediate. But the stuff isn't all wimpy, straight pentatonic stuff either. It isn't boring. You will learn some really cool-sounding music from the book, played all over the fretboard. And there is PLENTY to learn.

At the same time, the book won't take you very far beyond the introductory lead playing stage. So don't expect this book to make you the next BB King. And the coverage of theory is minimal at best, as it is in all such books that promise to teach you everything there is to know about lead guitar.

About the biggest complaint I can come up with is that I found the guy's English (or Australian?) accent (a rural accent, I believe?) vaguely annoying after a while. But if that's the most you can complain about, you know you've gotten a good value. In fact, this book would be worth at least twice what they're charging for it.

As a final note, raw beginners could probably make use of this book, but it would be very slow going. Advanced players would be bored by it. It is targeted directly at players who have taken the time to learn pentatonic scales fairly well, understand basic chord progressions, but don't have a clue how to make interesting solos.

Buy it!  Nov 1, 1999
Excellent combination of written instruction and examples backed by quality tracks.
