Description:Robben Ford does 4 solos ranging from 1 to 2 minutes with only one, ‘Deja Blue’ clocking in at close to 2 minutes. He’s hands down the best player represented here. He even makes a boring progression like ‘Ship Captain & Crew sound good. It’s just timing, phrasing and classy chops that do it for him along with alot of God given ability. You have all these solos tabbed out,(I can’t vouche for the accuracy but I’m assuming they’re fairly accurate) and the remaining 3 to 5 minutes of the tune to jam to. Steve Trovato does 3 solos and he’s just a notch down from Robben. His Stevie Ray Vaughan pistache ‘Never Ending Blues’ is a stand-out. Scott Henderson has just 1 solo and it’s very energetic but his playing is best represented in Tribal Tech recordings. He uses his whammy bar alot in subtle ways but to my ears he needs more interesting progressions to jam to to bring out his outrageous musical personality to best effect. Nevertheless, the best of luck trying to decipher his solo,(even with the transcription !) The rest of these solos are good but not great. If you like country, the very last song, ‘Sunset Saloon’ has B bender Tele phrases for you to try and emulate by Pedro Wyant. Not my cup of tea. This is a good value at 14 bucks because you get instructional material, performance notes, tabs and at least 7 expert blues solos,(4 by Robben Ford-perhaps the very best player in the genre). If you can play some,(know your blues and pentatonic scales), and have the motivation you could get pretty awesome at blues lead guitar with this book/CD package.
