This book explores the secrets of nine players who have shaped the legacy of blues-rock guitar: Duane Allman, Roy Buchanan, Eric Clapton, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Stevie Ray Vaughan. It offers biographical portraits highlighting each guitarist's position and influence in blues-rock history; details on gear including setup and tone; descriptive analysis of playing techniques; and several annotated music examples. Helping readers emulate the stylings of the masters, the accompanying CD contains examples from the book, played with each artist's preferred equipment.
