Learn how to play classic blues songs from the masters themselves! Blues Guitar Legends can be enjoyed by guitar players of all skill levels. Simplified chord versions of the songs are ideal for beginners, while experienced players can learn note-for-note from the full transcriptions of both lead and rhythm parts. The animated fretboard shows you the fingerings in real-time, so you don't need to read music. Original recordings and variable-speed MIDI tracks let you learn at the tempo you choose. Looping lets you select and repeat tricky sections of a song.
