The original lineup of David Coverdale's Whitesnake
were one of the great exponents of earthy blues-rock in the '70s and their individual style of melodic rock gave them commercial success through the '80s. The lineup has included everthing from the soulful melodic duo of Mickey Moody
and Bernie Marsden
to the Guitar pyrotechnics of Steve Vai
This Guitar workshop is a powerful learning tool that will help you extend your stockpile of licks and fills and develop your improvisational skills. The combination of musical notation and Guitar tablature in this book together with backing tracks on the CD gives you the opportunity to learn eight of Whitesnake's tracks note for note and then jam with a professional session band. The track listing reflects some of Whitesnake's most popular recordings, providing something for guitarists to have fun with and improvise with, as well as something to aspire to.
The CD is split into two sections, section 1 (tracks 1-8) is the backing tracks minus lead Guitar and vocals, while section 2 (tracks 9-16) is the backing tracks with all Guitar parts added, so in addition to the written tab you can hear the rhythm, fills and solos as they should be played! The 'Jam With...' series allows you to accurately recreate the original songs, or to use the transcriptions in this book in conjunction with the backing tracks as a basis for your own improvisation.
