    Just received (7 days shipping time UK to California). I’m a bass player versed in Bernard Edward lines, but was looking for more detailed playing transcription for Nile Rodgers for emulating his rhythm guitar stylings. Book is as comprehensive as I was hoping, for both bass and guitar. Like the explanatory notes for each song, tab and notation, variations on grooves, etc. $50 total with shipping to US but worth it. Recommend.
