Reviews - What do customers think about Mel Bay's Master Anthology of Blues Guitar Solos?

Decent, often good, but not "blues"  Aug 2, 2005
Frankly, the title is quite misleading, approaching false advertising. These are for the most part, not "blues" at all, but fingerstyle guitar pieces, mostly in the Nashville/Chet Atkins style. All of them owe some compositional debt to traditional blues, but the influence is sometimes very, very faint.

Now there are some very nice pieces in here: I'm particularly fond of Tim Sparks' "Blues on Bartok Street". But as good as that tune is, it has as much in common with what anyone thinks of as blues as any of Bartok's own compositions, which is to say nothing at all.

In short: blues this ain't. If you're hoping for an anthology of basic country/Piedmont/Chicago standards (or even styles), look elsewhere. Stefan Grossman's books are a good start.
