Features
The Blues Guitar Handbook by : Adam St. James


This latest entry in Backbeat's bestselling handbook series starts by exploring the humble beginnings of blues guitar through the early decades of the 20th century; including profiles of such players as Robert Johnson; Charley Patton; and Son House. As the story moves into the '40s and '50s; and blues players migrate to major urban centers; author Adam St. James follows the evolution of the music at the hands of such electric blues kingpins as Muddy Waters; Howlin' Wolf; and B. B. King. Then it's the blues-rockers of the '60s; '70s; and '80s (including Eric Clapton; Jimmy Page; Jeff Beck; and Stevie Ray Vaughan) before the story comes up to date; with blues flame-keepers such as Keb Mo' or Duke Robillard; and some not-quite-traditionalists; such as Robben Ford or Derek Trucks.

A comprehensive section for mastering electric and acoustic blues follows this historic overview. Starting from the very basics; it leads you into more advanced rhythm and lead techniques before examining four key styles: acoustic blues; classic electric blues; blues rock; and jazz blues. The many exercises in the book are supported by specially recorded audio tracks accessed online using the unique code inside each book. The audio files include PLAYBACK+; a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch; set loop points; change keys; and pan left or right.
