I have a friend who is looking for a Blues Guitar lesson book with tab and audio, or a DVD, or some free online lessons.

Does anyone know of a good one to recommend for a beginner guitarist?

Thanks!

Tell him to get some blues cds and learn from there. You can't learn blues out of a book. (No I don't hate books, I have a Master's Degree in Jazz Studies and still believe in learning from records).

Arlen Roth's Chicago Blues guitar 1&2 DVDs are both excellent with timeless info. I also love Ronnie Earle's Blues Guitar with Soul, which is just a treasure trove of West side Chicago blues guitar.

+1 for Jeff's Truefire courses. I have the 'Evolution of blues' and the '50 Blues licks' from there and they are both excellent. Jeff is a good teacher.

Tell your friend that he has to pony up some $ to get decent lessons IMO. :)

The Ronnie Earl DVD, when can you use the tunes he is giving is lessons on, and he uses a lot of difficult jazzy grps chords. I played it over and over but more to listen to Ronnie Earl.

I have about the whole Trufire collection,

and I think the Carlton 335 DVD jumps out, he realy can go back to the basics, playing on 1 positions everything you need to Bluesjam, behond that he goes very far for the beginner but that part is worth the whole episode.
