The rough side of the mountain is the best side to be on. Because, on the slick side, if you slip, you gonna fall all the way down. But on the rough side, there's a ledge here, so if I slip up, I got something to hold on to. Ha ha! - Doctor G B Burt, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16662606

Elijah Wald. The Dozens
« on: April 21, 2012, 12:41:40 AM »
I just read about this forthcoming book from Elijah Wald: http://www.elijahwald.com/dozens.html
I've pre-ordered it, hopefully I can survive Messrs. Cameron & Osborne's viciousness long enough to pay for it when it finally gets released.
If it's anything like Mr. Wald's other books, then it'll be fifteen quid well invested.

Looks like a good one.  His Robert Johnson book is excellent.  Mr. Wald is also a pretty darn good player.

A promising book, indeed.
It is also on my list.
I recently touched upon the subject of the 'dozens' in a piece comparing blues and rap music.

I have started reading it. Well written, well documented, but what I am missing so far is a general theory behind it. I will come back on it later.
