|Doing some spring cleaning. This book is in good shape, onnly issue is someone highlighted the 5th line of the tab on some of the exercises. Doesn't affect the readability, I'm guessing they did it to help keep track of the strings.
From the website:
Ever want to get a more "swing sound" in your playing, but only have a single neck guitar with a Nashville E9th tuning? It can be done and you can do it. Using a basic 3 pedal / 2 knee lever setup to achieve a "C6th tuning" sound, this course is designed for the experienced beginner through intermediate level player and teaches progressively more challenging arrangements of both traditional western swing instrumentals and popular standards of yesteryear played by swing bands. You'll learn alternative string grips to create more interesting chords, intros and endings, and several traditional jazz chord progressions only occasionally found in more "country-type" songs.
The CD contains Herb playing the solo with a rhythm track, followed by the rhythm track without the steel guitar solo. The 30-page book contains the tablature for all the songs and licks. As an aid to learning, the solos are recorded at slower tempos than normally would be played onstage. In addition to the songs, there are single-note scale licks, Hawaiian-style phrases, and a short lesson in chord construction.
The songs included are:
Texas Playboy Rag - D
Steelin' Home - D
Panhandle Rag - E
Steel Guitar Rag - E
Roadside Rag - E and C
Night Life intro and solo - D
Caravan - F minor
All Of Me - C
I Can't Give You Anything But Love - F
On The Sunny Side Of the Street - C
Moon Glow - E
Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone - C
