Discovering Rock Guitar - An introduction to rock and pop styles, techniques, sounds and equipment


Have you always wanted to play the guitar like Scotty Moore and Carlos Santana, or like the guitarists of Earth, Wind & Fire, T. Rex and the Beatles? Then this book is just right for you! It contains a comprehensive study of twelve different pop guitar styles from 1950 to the present day, such as disco, funk, Latin, reggae, sixties pop, glam and motown. Selected pieces help you to learn what matters with this music and what to pay attention to. Systematic exercises and songs specially composed for this purpose show everybody who wants to improve his/her performance what it is all about: they are complemented by information on important techniques, players, sounds, equipment and amps. As a special bonus, the CD contains the complete demo tracks as well as backing tracks of all songs.
