(Guitar). The 2,000 licks in this book are organized into 36 chapters. These chapters explore the different pitches, rhythms, techniques, and methods of phrasing found in blues and blues-influenced guitar solos and fills. Use these licks to deliver heavy, yet ear-catching riffs. These can be played along with the 43 backing tracks included on the 3 CDs that come with this book. They are all written in the key of a C blues, while the backing tracks are played in the keys of E, A, D, G, C, F, and Bb. A handy table is included that shows how to transpose up or down from C to other blues keys. The backing tracks (performed by a live band in a studio) are all in the 12-bar blues form, but the licks do not necessarily have to be played over specific chords in the progression.
If you love the blues and play guitar, this is the last book you'll ever need. I have spent a small fortune on books with 20, 30, 100, even 200 licks, but none even come close to what you get in this tome in quantity and quality. It's 9 x 12 inches and an inch thick, with 5 licks on every page in both standard and TAB notation. The 36 chapters are organized by pitch, rhythmic patterns, tools for phrasing, and different playing techniques, such as bends, slides, trills, dyads, arpeggios, hammer-ons and pull-offs, picking techniques, and so on. Just looking at the table of contents will inspire you to try new things.

Each chapter is preceded by a short introduction, explaining the theory behind the licks, how other guitarists have used them, and how you can use them to express your own feelings. It is a virtual bible of blues licks for guitarists of all levels and all styles.

The author's introduction to the book is short and to the point. He doesn't waste space on basic concepts and techniques that can be found elsewhere. Everything is written in C, which makes it easy to analyze and compare licks. A transposition chart is included, which helps you play each lick in any key.

The book comes with 3 CDs of backing tracks, recorded with a live band in a professional studio. They sound like they have been playing blues and R & B in different styles for decades. Playing along with these tracks will inspire you and take you to higher levels than you ever thought possible. Playing along with these tracks can help your soloing in a variety of styles.

If you want to play the blues from the inside, get this book.
Don't judge a book by its cover. 2000 Blues Licks That Rock is more than just a prodigious collection of concise guitar Blues phrases accompanied by three CDs of top-shelf backing tracks. This collection of written riffs and recorded tracks is actually a stimulating method that, given just a few minutes of attention each day, really expands prowess on the fretboard. Fifteen minutes of playing through a few pages of licks followed by fifteen minutes of playing over a few tracks and voila! Rut-buster!

It's refreshing not to be spoon-fed precise licks, as is the case with many instructional DVDs and book/CD combo packs, whereby the instructor informs, "Play it like this..." In those cases I'm always attempting to play exactly as the instructor lays it down, never completely satisfied with my result, therefore focusing on the same licks for far too long. This is not the case with "2000 Licks." Since the actual licks only appear on the printed page (and my tab-playing ability is suspect) I really don't know if I'm playing the licks correctly, and I really don't care. I play them as best as I possibly can while going through the book. Maybe I'm playing them as the author intended, but maybe I'm not. It doesn't really matter. Once I've had enough of playing from the page I pop in a CD and let fly. Wow. I actually find myself playing some semblance of the new licks, expanding my Blues playing from my normal tried-and-true (some may say "tired") phrases. The backing tracks sound good too, so it makes for a fun session.

I suspect the author did indeed have a method to his madness, offering an opportunity for the player to internalize new phrases without the trappings of focusing on literal rote licks. If you approach this fine learning tool as a method that builds as you go, it can really open-up your Blues guitar playing. It's helped me so far, and there's so much good stuff it should keep me busy for quite some time. I can't comment on the progression of techniques presented, as I have not spent more than ten days focusing, but I anticipate that it just keeps getting better and better, helping create my own style as my playing expands.
This is an enormous book. Its pages are in sheet-music size and it's a full inch thick. Every page contains several individual licks in both tablature and standard notation.

The licks are broken into sensible chapters, based on note groupings and various playing techniques. All are in the key of C, and simple instructions for transpositions to other keys are on the first page of the book.

No space is wasted on lengthy expositions about style or meaning or technique, although each chapter has a brief description of the type of licks within it and some clues about the styles and players that use them. As soon as you flip past the index and one-page introduction, there are the licks-- all 2000 of 'em. I was going to count them to make sure, but they're numbered, so I didn't have to.

There are three CDs in the back containing 43 backing tracks in many styles, professionally recorded by actual live musicians. Many are good listening all by themselves, for those moments when your fingers are tired. You'll want to keep playing, though, 'cause you've got a lot of material to learn and have fun with!

My hat is off to Dr. Fritts-- this book will keep me busy for a long time and I'm going to be a much better musician because of it.

I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in Blues-- or Rock or Jazz, for that matter, since the licks would be useful across the board.
