The Beatles were undoubtedly one of the most influential bands ever, with clear similarities still noticeable in many hits of the nineties. Almost anyone who has picked up a guitar has probably learned to play something from the enormous repertoire of songs written by the legendary Lennon and McCartney combination.
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 the Beatles' tracks note for note and then jam with a professional session band. The track listing reflects some of the Beatles' 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 is the backing tracks minus lead guitar & vocals, while section 2 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.
Includes superb quality, live recorded backing tracks plus note for note transcriptions to 9 classic tunes.
