Another great little book from Larry McCabe and Mel Bay Publications. Book includes standard music notation and TAB of various 2, 4, and 8 bar solos and licks in varous keys of C, G, and D; included CD contains music tracks of all licks and solos throughout the book. If you're a fan of country bluegrass or newgrass, pull a rocking chair, grab your CD player, tune up your instrument, and let's start 'pickin'...DEO...}:)>
