If you play on your own and like blues then you'll LOVE this. There are 9 blues arrangements by Justin, starting simple and getting pretty tricky - but fun all the way - and the music is complete on its own - no vocal required (though you could add a vocal I guess!) so you can perform these as they are, you'll be playing rhythm and melody at the same time!
As well as learning each song 'as written' you should learn to improvise with the skillset covered in the arrangement, they're arranged for you to be able to play about with them and explore them on your own!
