Clapton returns to his roots and turns the blues world upside down in the process. Who'd have thought that going back was a way to go forward? His best playing in years, and vocals that will send chills up your spine. This is Clapton in his element, a force of nature in action. If you like blues, get this. If you like rock and want to be a better player, get this. In fact, if you have an extra $15, just get it, whoever you are.

This book is a blues lesson in itself. An excellent way to get back to the heart and soul of the blues.

Most of the songs in this compendium are remakes of some of the best-known blues songs in history. Clapton's covers here are fairly faithful to the originals, so it's not just Clapton stuff that you're learning if you buy this book, it's the whole history of the blues.

This stuff is good for both intermediates, who can pick up the grooves to the various songs, and for more advanced players, who get a chance to work on soloing like Clapton.
