    I’ve been looking for a good well recommended beginner blues guitar resource for a while now, and after searching several guitar forums, so far “Blues you can use” seems like a great resource. They say that the lessons are easy to understand, they build well on top of previous skills learned so it’s good to follow the training as it’s presented, and it advances progressively more difficult as you go along.

    I recently purchased “Blues you can use” and “Blues licks you can use” but I have not used them yet :? (life is tough/busy), but the CD examples sound great. I just checked out Hal Leonard's website, and they have these stores listed in your country for their products.

    Broekmans & Van Poppel B.V
    Harmonia BV
    Music Print
    Spanjaard Muziek

    The original book apparently did so well that they have made a Spanish addition, and 4(!) other associated books as well. Here's the list from Hal's website after searching for Ganapes.

    Blues You Can Use - Guitar Educational - Book & CD Package - 695007 - $19.95

    Blues You Can Use Book Of Guitar Chords - Guitar Educational - 695082 - $14.95

    More Blues You Can Use - Guitar Educational - Book & CD Package - 695165 - $19.95

    Blues Licks You Can Use - Guitar Educational - CD - 695386 - $16.95

    Jazzin' the Blues (Guitar) - A Complete Guide to Learning Jazz-Blues Guitar - Guitar Educational - Book & CD Package - 695608 - $19.95

    Blues You Can Use - Spanish Edition - Stylistic Method - Book & CD Package - 695276 - $19.95

    CLICK HERE FOR MORE FROM HAL LEONARD

    Say, if you can’t find what you want from a retail store, check used and online stores, including ebay and such. I think Mel Bay has some good Blues stuff too. Other publisher’s I casually know of are, Cherry Lane and Warner Brothers. Also, that book/CD link lazybones offered has to be great too, I have a “rock and roll” one of that same book series, and it’s excellent.

    Knockin' on Heaven's Door by Guns 'N Roses is a great Blues/Rock song if you want to learn the solos.

    Great suggestion AngusRocks90! I like it when blues and rock come together like that.

    Uh oh, he's got that "I've got a great idea" look in his eyes again! :lol:

    I’m beginning to consider starting a blues guitarist support group mostly for blues (and blues or classic rock) guitarists who want to improve their playing, and I’d like your input. Until I get settled into a new job and place to live, I doubt I'll be doing much with this. Yet at the same time, whenever I do have time, it would be a very welcome relief and likely great fun to share in the learning/growing experiences.

    I’m not sure where this would go. I don’t want it to get real big or out of hand, yet I think it would be cool if more than just a few participated. Let me know if you’re interested, and I welcome your comments and suggestions!

    1 Way, I do a version of Knockin that is our style and a cross between G N R and Dylan....... have a lot of fun with it. And it's a great song because based on your mood, you can swing the style from blues to lite rock.............! 8) 8) 8)

    (And 1 Way, come on down to our show at the Downtown Grounds in Syracuse next month and we'll do it for you...... it's the 17th & 18th...................)

    Anyone have recomendations for free hosting for multimedia files? I'm thinking mostly about sound files, but maybe some video too. I have an account in photobucket, but want more... :roll:

    No interest shown yet in a blues/rock player's group to help brake thru growth progress barriers. I didn't think that people are normally this shy.

    What would make you more interested in participating in a blues/rock guitar improvement group?

    People are signing up, the forum is nearly ready for use!

    Sorry for reviving an old dead warn out thread, but I got to say the on an sg rocks. It totally does and you got to play with a slide if you want to be a true blues man.
