This CD is the companion soundtrack to the book of the same name. The recording is an essential companion to the book because of the difficulty in trying to convey all of the elements of any (rhythm) guitar style solely in written form. The recording transmits such elements as the exact accenting of some rhythms in a more comprehensible way than any amount of dots, lines and numbers would do. Also, hearing the accompaniment in place with some excellent melody players will give you a clear picture of what it is supposed to sound like. Each track appears both with and without accompaniment so you can have a go yourself when you feel ready. On the tracks with accompaniment the guitar is deliberately prominent but adjustment is possible by altering the balance control on your player. The unaccompanied tracks allow the student to play along with the music. To help you find your way around the CD, the track numbers are indicated in the book where appropriate.
