I love Cornell Dupree's playing. He is one of my favorite rythym guitar players. I've been a professional musician for 35 years now and I've seen him many playing in all kinds of musical settings playing many different styles of music. No matter what he does he always remains himself. He's on some of my favorite disc's. Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway, Freddie King, Stuff, King Curtis, Paul Simon, and countless more funk, R&B and pop sessions. (Look up his catalog if you get the chance. It's amazing.
Though there is a lot here to learn from the lessons and it's all practical, useful real world stuff for me it didn't cover enough ground. As an intro it's good but he is such a sophisticated player it just left out too much.

The way he voices chords. The way he riffs between chords. These are all huge parts of his style and here it only scatches the surface.
Don't get me wrong. There are many beautiful things to learn here but I hoped for something that would dig deeper.
Go out and buy it despite my review. He is an original and whatever you get from this book will be worth your time.

A real gem from one of the landmark R & B players. Honestly, I'm a little amazed at some of the criticism in the other reviews. There's a lot of good stuff here and enough material to keep most intermediate players busy for quite a while. Well worth the money.

Here 's a little gem of a book. While many books claim to teach

the subject Mr. Dupree delivers with an authenticity only garnered

after dedicating a lifetime towards crafting guitar for the very

best.

Definitely worth the money and a worthy investment in my time.

I found this book to be the perfect tool for learning a very

magical style of guitar playing.

What I thought about this book...

CONS:

-- 19 pages of about his playing experiences and background. The book is relatively short at 72 pages.

-- I don't doubt you couldn't learn to incorporate funk into your playing if you read this book. I don't too much care for the approach used. He gives you songs he has written for you to play and hopefully you'll be "funkified" by the end of the song. He doesn't explain why he has chosen certain chord progressions or anything of that nature.

-- Not for beginning guitarists! A mixture of barre chords, slides, and pull-offs on one chord change is enough to intimidate a novice.

PROS:

-- Includes CD.
-- Well-written in tab and standard notation.
