Careful, step-by-step working through creating a full blues piece
What I really like about this book is that it works through ideas in a stepwise fashion that lets you work on one aspect of blues piano at a time, gradually increasing the difficulty level of balancing out rhythms and melodic fragments in the two hands. It works best if you have a computer monitor right next to your keyboard so that you can plan along with the recorded samples. Playing with the recorded audio is helpful to me for sticking to the tempo, relaxing into the groove. I only wish you could add books to your list of favorites or your history - I have to search to find this book each time I want to work on another section.
