Straw Dog – Electric Blues Guitar

The publication in 1977. Group of authors (among them – well-known musicians of 70s) examines the various theoretical and practical issues arising from beginner guitarists. Much attention is paid to the analysis of musical phrases. The Box system of Guitar Improvisation.
An immediately practical visual “overlay” system, covering the entire guitar fingerboard and designed to organize the fingerboard for purposes of improvisation. Enclosed demonstration record. Featuring dozens of lead licks in the style of Duane Allman, Jeff Beck, Dick Betts, Michael Bloomfield, Roy Buchanan, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Albert and B.B. King, Shuggie Otism Jimmy Page, Mick Taylor, Johnny Winter, and many others. Plus two full-length jams featuring Capitol recording star Tim Kaihatsu, lead guitarist with the Charlie Musselwhite Blues Band.
Demonstration licks are based on the idea that every note (all 12) can be applied in every key which is a more open approach than most blues instruction methods. Hard to find these days but worth the search.
