Hal Leonard is proud to present a new book/CD pack that gives guitarists an inside look at the guitar style of the extraordinary and highly influential Michael Bloomfield, ranked in 2003 at #22 on Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time." Our Legendary Licks book (HL00102574 / $19.99) by Dave Celentano has just gone to press, and should be in stock by the end of February.

The CD is playable on any CD player, and also enhanced so Mac & PC users can adjust the recording to any tempo without changing the pitch.

"Mike Bloomfield is number one. Not only did he play over the top well – and I mean amazingly well – but he also played what I call 'real' guitar. If you've ever heard Mike Bloomfield, then you know what I'm talking about. It just came from his heart. I never got a chance to see him because he died at an early age, but he was a big influence on me as to the way I learned to bend strings and get everything I could out of a note. One of the best players ever.” – Mick Mars (Motley Crüe)
