Boogie woogie music is one of the greatest influences on the blues, swing jazz and rock 'n' roll. The style is usually identified more with the piano than the guitar; however, boogie woogie actually seems to have originated with guitar players during the latter half of the 19th century in the rough “barrel houses” of the turpentine and lumber camps of the American South. Now with this book and video pack, trace the history of boogie woogie guitar with blues historian Dave Rubin and learn how to play the essential patterns that influenced generations of musicians. Features video lessons with demonstrations of every music example in the book!

            The book and online video progresses in an easy to follow way from walking type boogie-woogie bass lines to more complicated ways of playing over a standard blues progression, but all within an late beginner / intermediate level.
            Many of the patterns are familiar from rock n roll / rockabilly songs of the 50's & 60's songs and it's good to see them laid out.
            I think advanced players will find the material too simple, but as an intermediate player I certainly picked up a few things.
            The section on John Lee Hooker was rather brief and didn't really cover enough, but as the Author (Dave Rubin) points out he has written two books which dive deeper into the John Lee Hooker style.
