B.B. King Guitar Play Along (Hal Leonard Volume 100)

This is a great book that is exactly what it says it is - a terrific lesson on how to play along with BB King songs (8 of them included) with the entire song tabbed for guitar. Everything seems accurate and so this is a great way to learn a lot of cool blues licks. No, BB is not a wild blues man like someone like Hendrix or Buddy Guy (though some of these are mighty speedy), but his riffs are right on the money and have plenty of soul.

Well worth the money! Songs include: "Just Like a Woman", "Paying the Cost to be the Boss", "Please Accept My Love", "Rock Me Baby", "Sweet Little Angel", "Sweet Sixteen", "Why I Sing the Blues" & "You Upset Me Baby". The CD sounds identical to BB's originals minus the vocals and each song has one version with the guitar and one version without so that you can play along with it. Great!
