For more than 32 years, Guitar World magazine has been one of the leading authorities on the subject of blues guitar—month after month, the respected publication features interviews with legendary blues artists, critical analyses of various guitar-playing styles and detailed portraits of the genre’s pioneers.

Now, from the pages of Guitar World comes Legends of Blues Guitar, a comprehensive book containing informative articles on some of the most important figures in blues guitar history, plus instructional video segments that will teach you how to play in the style of Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker and other blues guitar greats.

Legends of Blues Guitar features in-depth, revealing interviews with Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and B.B. King, fact-packed historical pieces on Albert King, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Freddie King and Hubert Sumlin, plus a detailed look at the making of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s masterful Couldn’t Stand the Weather album, as told by his bandmates. And if you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to blues albums, look no further than our 25 Essential Blues Albums feature, an A-to-Z list of must-have acoustic and electric blues recordings.

As a bonus, Legends of Blues Guitar contains nearly 20 minutes of instructional guitar video with noted teacher Andy Aledort!

Customer Reviews

Nice book but..

The instructional videos do not function, which is disappointing.
I have only had this for a few hours so maybe they will update. If so, I will review them.

Video problem

Like the other review the videos don't work for me either. Otherwise it's a good book to dig into the blues fairly well. Such a shame the feature that sold me doesn't work...

Very good book....BUT

I have enjoyed the book but I feel like I was lied too. The price was to include video....IT DOES NOT WORK.
Please fix or send 50% refund!!!!
