The Complete Guide to Playing Blues Guitar is a three-part series that teaches you all the essential skills required to become an excellent blues guitarist.

Book Three: Beyond Pentatonics shows you how to break away from the minor pentatonic soloing rut that many blues guitarists quickly fall into with two sections of soloing secrets…

Part one of Beyond Pentatonics shows you how to target the most powerful notes from each chord in the blues progression to create the greatest emotional effect.

Every chord change in the blues progression is covered in minute detail, with clear diagrams and over 125 great licks to learn.

You’ll quickly find yourself playing emotive, original solos that you never before thought possible.

Part two of Beyond Pentatonics looks in great detail at the many possible scale choices for each of the chords in the blues.

Every essential scale choice is given for the I, IV and V chords, with theory and important concepts clearly explained. There are over 125 pieces of authentic blues vocabulary, plus many ‘tricks of the trade’ to help you incorporate these compelling sounds into your solos.

There is no better, more detailed book to teach you the secrets of blues guitar soloing. 

Hundreds of Reviews for each Book include:
  • Most of the blues guitarists I hear play the same tired licks over and over, and pay little attention to the underlying harmony of the blues progression.. This book is a study in "targeting" the choice notes that help define the chord movement and bring real expression to your soloing.
  • I find Alexander's books invaluable for getting myself out of a musical rut and learning something new. In this book you get ideas for stepping outside of the usual pentatonic scale tones to enhance your soloing ability. He really breaks everything down in a way that you can quickly grasp the concept.
  • This book, along with the other two books in Joseph Alexander's Blues Guitar series, are some of the best resources that I have in my rather extensive collection of guitar literature. Focusing on Blues and offering deep and noteworthy explanations in an easy to follow and comprehend writing style makes for a great value.
