5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kenneth Wells on December 14, 2007
Format: Paperback
Interesting insight to the process that Lenny used to craft these fingerstyle gems. Has standard notation and tablature and a CD in which Lenny himself walks you through the entire book. Makes you appreciate the intellectual side of deciding different voicings he used in his chords, the inner harmonies and contrapuntal lines in these songs. It helped that I had the recordings that are transcribed in the book. Much like impressionistic painting, it would be difficult to understand the music without knowing how they sound, because the music is so dense with harmonies and implied root tones. Not for the beginner, but if you love Lenny's playing this item is very useful

This book has a little something for all guitarists interested in Lenny's style. The main emphasis of the book is an entry-level intro to his finger-picking techniques. It really starts with simple ideas - if you already have some experience with it, this is a little too basic. But even more advanced Lenny fans will want it anyway - for the CD featuring Lenny himself talking and demonstrating! And there are a couple of trascriptions at the end - Five O'clock Bells, Little Blues, and Freight Train.

Format: Paperback
The three songs transcribed in the back of the book are worth the purchase alone. Too bad the songs matching the transcritions are not included on the disc. There's room for them on the disc but are not included. True Lenny Breau fans should have no trouble finding a copy though. So go ahead, buy this book, it's worth every penny...

I have other Lenny Breau guitar books, but this is one of the best reflecting the Lenny Breau style of playing the guitar. The harmonics,
which is a signature for the Lenny Breau style are great!
