12 Bar Blues Bible (Book/CD)
12 Bar Blues Bible by Andrew D. Gordon Due to the overwhelming demand of my book "100 Ultimate Blues Riffs", I decided to author another book solely on blues piano/keyboard playing. Most Blues tunes are made up of a 12 bar progression and I thought that a book that show the various types and styles of 12 bar blues progressions would be useful to musicians and students. The book includes over 50 examples that cover a range of styles, (blues, jazz-blues, minor-blues, funky-blues, country-blues, rock-blues, latin-blues, gospel-blues), tempos, rhythms and key signatures. There is a brief description, followed by each of the examples perfectly notated, along with the chord symbols. The latter part of the book contains a chapter on the "Basics Of Blues Improvisation" for anyone who is just starting out in the world of Improvising using the Blues as a starting point. At the end of the CD there are seven jam - along tracks, each about three minutes in length so that you may try out examples in the book or your own improvisational ideas along with a rhythm section of organ, bass and drums.
